Hi Chris,

Thanks for your question. I can't say for certain that all my future novels will be historical, but I can tell you that I enjoyed learning about a forgotten era even more than I thought I would, so it's a definite possibility. My next novel is set in Hollywood in the early 1920s, during the heyday of silent movies.

As for my contemporary novels - The Shortest Way Home, Deep Down True and Shelter Me - while they aren't set in the past, each explore issues that you may not know about. For me, the joy of historical novels is learning interesting information in an entertaining way, which each of these novels also provides, but in a more familiar setting.

Thanks for your kind words about The Tumbling Turner Sisters - I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Hi Dorie,
To answer your lovely question, I spent a LOT of time reading about vaudeville acts and watching old performance clips on YouTube (gotta love the internet!) I wanted something a little more interesting that just a singing sister act, and looked for something visual, so it would be more interesting for readers. I also needed something that the girls might be able to do, very basically at first, and then improve over time.
Then as now, there were many injuries, and not nearly the knowledge of how to care for them. An ice bag was the height of physical therapy! I'm sure you must have nursed your girls through many injuries over the course of their gymnastic careers.
I'm so glad you enjoyed the book and could relate to their acrobatics. Thanks for contacting me!

Desperately seeking a great gift idea for an irascible uncle or I-don’t-want-a-thing niece? Pound for pound and dollar for dollar, books cannot be beat for an offering that is both personal and universal–and 2017 has been great to us, bookwise. Here are three books I absolutely adored, and I’m guessing that at least one of them will ring the bell for someone special (and/or

“Loneliness is painful. But suffering is not wrong in and of itself. It's part of the human experience, and in a way brings us closer to all people.”
Juliette Fay, Shelter Me

“The Magi in my life have always surprised me. They have often been people I initially felt I had nothing in common with. Sometimes I didn't even like them. But they came bearing gifts. Of wisdom, or acceptance. One or two came to give me a kick in the pants...and some left as suddenly as they came. They returned to their respective homelands or continued on their own journeys. I miss some of them... But we all have to find our way toward what ever miracle awaits us. And to perform miracles, when it is in our power to do so. Maybe the most important question is: how do I serve the Magi for others? How generously do I give my gifts - and not just to the obvious recipients in my life? How far out of my way do go to recognize and pay homage to miracles? Not very far some days. But on good days, just far enough. ”
Juliette Fay, Shelter Me

“We all miss people. I miss my parents, may they rest in peace. I miss my marriage when it was good. You don't have to stop missing. You just have to accept that missing doesn't mean you turn away your happiness.”
Juliette Fay, Shelter Me
