witch danceDec 2016 – I’m currently working on two books for 2017 releases, The Culpepper-Fairfax Scandal and Witch Dance. You can click on the names to read more about them. The Culpepper-Fairfax Scandal is set in 1690 England and is a continuation of the Culpepper Saga books, only fifty years later. Witch Dance is a frightening mystery set in present day Mississippi with many flashbacks dating to pre-America times. I’m learning as I write both these stories that we are all connected to our pasts – even the pasts we don’t know about.
