Young Victoria lives an idyllic life shut away from the world–until the world tries to come calling.
It’s the early 1600s and Duke Carlos’ daughters live a quiet existence in a castle in rural Spain, a bit of a distance from young King Felipe’s imposing fortress of El Escorial. Nothing much happens among the Duke’s many daughters, except they make too much noise and long for adventures they’ll never get. But when the oldest sister, Bella, turns out to have a mysterious acquaintance with a tough-looking bandit, she disappears on just exactly the sort of adventure that isn’t supposed to happen at the Alcazar. The Duke and Duchess don’t believe in their daughters running all over the countryside or meeting the King in person. But that’s just what Victoria ends up doing too. She and Bella are related, after all.

I write historical novels, dystopian, and chick-lit. My home is on a rural country road surrounded by cultivated fields that rapidly give way to wild flowers, wild plants, and wild life and I can always be found scribbling away at a new project. I get most of my ideas while drifting innocuously around my house. And sometimes I exercise my beloved, blind Pomeranian, although Pom prefers to vegetate indoors.
