Annalice Hilbourne is a young girl when she is swept away to live in India while her father builds up his trade business in the shadow of the East India Company. Anna finds India to be a captivating and mysterious place and the people just as intriguing. She becomes friends with the daughter of her father’s right hand man. Isha is a clever and adventurous girl but her curiosity and Anna’s longing to explore leads them to places forbidden to them.

I am pleased to announce to you all that the Walls of Ash cover art is officially complete. First, I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Erica Wilson, who took the time out of her busy mom-schedule to do this for me, she is amazing!
This cover was meant to be a sort of homage to the very popular Gothic Romance covers of the 1970’s but with a modern twist. As many of my friends and family know, I am obsessed with Eleanor Hibbert who wrote under many pseudonyms, but specifically her Victoria Holt books had covers that often featured a large, dark house with a gloomy atmosphere and a young woman nearby. Erica did a great job of capturing this in a modern form.
I’m looking forward to releasing the book to you, hopefully mid to late December. I’ll keep sending out updates as I have them to offer to you. In the mean time, enjoy this piece, Erica worked hard on it and her cover art came out fantastic!
The magnificent Rhineholt house is the heart of all Tamsin’s memories. Her ancestral home is a dark and lonely place with shadowed corners and dark secrets. She finds solace with her mother’s presence in her sleep, but when those sweet dreams become dark, terrifying nightmares, Tamsin realizes that she is being warned of a sinister force. A force wants her death…
In a time when young ladies were bred to wed and follow orders, Tamsin Rhineholt is an unconventional and stubborn daughter of the house, Rhineholt. With a mystery surrounding the loss of her parents, she still feels her mother’s presence in her life. When Tamsin is threatened if she refuses an offered hand in marriage, she realizes that her mother is trying to warn her of the terrible things to come through her dreams. Her dearest friends try to help her in the most trying of tragedies, but there is a fine line between faith and madness. Can great distance dissolve the fear that pursues her, or will that fear follow Tamsin to her end? Does love truly overcome all obstacles?
