Originally, I was going to write it with a male protagonist, but after five or 6 tries, I realized a male perspective just wasn't going to work for me. So I went with the main female protagonist's POV. That's working out well for me. Right now I am still working on the VERY rough first draft, and hopefully have it finished by the end of the year. THEN the editing, revising and rewriting begins...so hopefully sometime in 2015 I'll have the sequel released!(less)

She told me about a common ancestor of ours--Rebecca Blake Eames--who was among the over 140 accused and imprisoned for witchcraft during the 1692 Salem Witchcraft Hysteria. I was fascinated and said, "that would make a great historical novel! It's a shame I don't write anymore." "So write it," she said. And at that moment my passion for writing was reawakened. And not only did she tell me about Rebecca, but we also descend from another early American family, the Otis family of New Hampshire. My third book will feature THAT group of ancestors.(less)
