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.

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

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

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

“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.”
