Romance with a Touch of History

After writing two critically acclaimed YA historical novels, my mission is to write adult historical romance that brings gay women from the sidelines of the history and adds their stories to the canvas of our past.

My current novel, Under the Pale Moon, is due for release in Spring 2015. Set in post-World War II Monterey, California, it explores the relationship of a married woman breaking the bonds of conformity, and a combat nurse haunted by the ghosts of war.
