Eileen Charbonneau is the author of award-winning historical novels for adults and young people. Her stories explore America through eyes seldom put front and center: her immigrants, her native peoples, her women. Eileen’s books have been praised by Kirkus, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Booklist and many others, so she might be on to something. She runs a small bed and breakfast inn with her husband in the brave little state of Vermont, where the world appears on their doorstep to see the leaves go glorious evey autumn. Eileen is addicted to maple creemies, period dramas and American roots music.

Nemesis by Lindsey Davis

Poignant opening, with the death of Falco's father and child. Great characters and mystery as usual, but I found the ending of the book a bit disappointing. It's hard to see this series end (although I'm sure I'll enjoy the next generation).

Eileen Charbonneau Great news all around, Rosemary! Where in CT? Might be able to meet in any of those 3 places! We are in the middle of a move and things are a little crazy, but I will make every effort to meet up! Please ssend details.

Daniel Keep reading and writing Eileen. I wish you all the luck in the world. I'll send you a link to my latest book.

Rosemary Hi, Eileen. How is your dramatic project going?

Recently, I heard the good news that my play The Little Death is scheduled to be produced in Seattle next October. I'm delighted. It's been a long time since the play was first done, and I'm confident the Seattle director will bring out the right sense of darkness in the story.

This December 5th, I have a signing scheduled in CT and plan to spend some time in Brooklyn and NYC. Are you anywhere nearby? If so, I hope we can meet up for meal.
