Hi Emily,

Thanks so much for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed Vicky's story. Let's see, to answer your question, yes, I do have a sequel planned, however, I'm working on another historical right now, which will be out winter 2016. This one is a mid-Victorian about a girl who hunts rare orchids with her father. So I'm busy researching and writing that one.

At the moment my plan for the sequel to A Mad, Wicked Folly will feature Charlotte, Vicky's niece, during WWI with Vicky and Will playing supporting roles! : )

Best,
Sharon

“A strange thing, words. Once they're said, it's hard to imagine they're untrue.”
Sharon Biggs Waller, A Mad, Wicked Folly

“This is why we all fight so hard. Not just for the vote, but for an equal opportunity in the world. A vote is a voice. I think you underestimate yourself, Queenie. This is your fight, same as it is mine.”
Sharon Biggs Waller, A Mad, Wicked Folly

“Then I knew: this wasn’t just a passion I felt for my model. My feelings about him had nothing to do with how his looks inspired me; he was far more than a muse. With every stroke of pencil and crayon, I had drawn Will into my heart.

I was in love with him.”
Sharon Biggs Waller, A Mad, Wicked Folly

“I'm a Lost Witch. Are you a Lost Witch too?”
Suzanne Palmieri, The Witch of Little Italy

“The truth is, time marches on and you have two choices: You move forward, come what may, and you experience all the sour and sweet things that fly at you from around corners, or you sit still. Don't sit still.”
Suzanne Palmieri, The Witch of Little Italy
