Unfortunately the Frenchmen in the novel was not wearing powdered and perfumed wigs for trend reasons (that was definitely much later). It was the pox, syphilis, which caused hair loss. An embarrasment for them and those who could see beneath the face powder and other accoutrements to keep it hidden. Apparently syphilis was all the rage during the 16th century.(less)

Written as a YA/A Adventure, the novel follows a single family line through 37,000 years of North American history. The manuscript is now ready for an agent and submission for publication - a gruelling and character-building process.(less)

“Perhaps it is belief more than truth that helps us survive.”
P.J. Parker, Fire on the Water: A Companion to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

“He pushed a finger through the surface of the water to trace the outline of her mouth. Ethereal bits of flesh floated loosely about his knuckle and nail. Then, calmly, he pulled her body up out of the tub and into his arms. He placed his lips on hers, now as cold and dead as his own.”
P.J. Parker, Fire on the Water: A Companion to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

“My glance fell upon a beautiful flower;
the universe turned around her.

— Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent”
P.J. Parker, Roxelana & Suleyman

P.J. Parker, Fire on the Water: A Companion to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

“I have created something and let it loose upon the world. Whether it was my right to do so or not, I cannot say. At times I am filled with love for my creation. At others I am filled with regret and horror. But it is done. It has been created.”
P.J. Parker, Fire on the Water: A Companion to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

“The stuff of nightmares is not only relegated to unconscious thoughts upon a pillow, safely beneath an eiderdown.”
