Clay’s Cottage

Lacking motivation for her next historical romance novel, Tilly Fletcher embarks on a spontaneous road trip to an abandoned Tasmanian 19th century cottage. Inside, she is drawn to an old oil painting hung above the fireplace, painted by the original cottage owner over a hundred years ago. Moments later, after touching the painting, Tilly is overcome by sickness and finds herself no longer in 2019, but suddenly standing inside the cottage in 1869 - and gets caught by the cottage owner, a disgruntled Nicholas Clay.

Did she really travel 150 years in the past or is it all just a dream? Can she find her way back to her own time?

This certainly isn’t the motivation Tilly was looking for… Or is it?

The ocean is as old as time and so are her servants. The spirits of the ocean are born to help the ocean and do what she asks. However, not ever spirit has the same story.
Thrown into a war between her new nature and her past, Maurea struggles to navigate her new world when it clashes with the old. Sometimes the only way to win is to lose.


The calm embrace of the current carried me to a resting bed. My body eased into the silt at the bottom of the river. Everything was numb as I stared at the calm water above me.

I wasn’t strong enough to save them and I wasn’t strong enough to save myself either. I closed my eyes, prepared to never move again for fear of failure. The truth about my family and sister was something I could have faced with time, but I just lost her: my sister, the woman I loved, my protector. Not only was she gone Jax, the man who I had trusted enough to care about, had sacrificed his freedom for me.

Finally, the armies of the Hittites have been subdued, but at a great cost to both sides.
Egypt could not take back the fortress city of Kadesh, key to defending their golden land and their vassal states, but in the eyes of the Pharaoh, they won something much greater; peace.
After a century of war, it was a much-welcomed outcome for both Egypt and Hattusa.

The great Hittite general, Hattusili, offers his daughter, the young princess Malawashina, as a bride for Pharaoh to seal their treaty once and for all.
But, is the treaty the only reason he chooses to send his most precious daughter away from their homeland, away from his heart?

How will life fare for her in the distant land of Egypt, where she will ultimately be sent into the clutches of Pharaoh’s harem?
Claws will be hidden beneath the facade of pleasantries and charm. Will the rules set in place to assure harmony within the palace be enough to protect her from the ruthlessness of her fellow wives as they vie for Pharaoh’s favour and affections?

Within Pharaoh’s harem, only one flower can bloom…

Kaft

Some who are familiar with the history of Western Europe may have heard about the Dutch Revolt in the 16th century, but it is much less known that before this event the Netherlands already shared a history of strife and faction wars. One such conflict, that has been carried over several generations, was that between the factions known as the Cods and the Hooks in the medieval County of Holland.

This historical fiction tells the story of its leading actors, their search for power, respect, wealth or just peace and quiet.

It will take you into the 14th century Low Countries. Experience the rise of the cities, the counter of the nobility, the growing of central power, the first battles of the Hundred Years War, The Black Death and the complicated politics of the Holy Roman Empire.
Holland stands as a midget among giants and must prey from the powerful in order not to get trampled.

Maroon and Blue Corporate people Walking Business Book Cover (1)

Title: Sweepings of the Street

Genre: Historical Fiction

Setting: London, England, 1816, during the British Industrial Revolution

Keywords: Industrial Revolution, England, chimney sweep, factory, family, loss, love, friendship, loyalty, poverty, secrets, lies, hope

Audience: young adult (13+)

Blurb:

“I resolve to do everything I can to help my family.”

This is the promise that twelve-year-old Sarah Lee makes. In the spring of 1816, Sarah’s family is uprooted from their home in the English countryside and thrown into a factory in newly industrial London. Six months later, an injury at work leaves Sarah’s father out of work and her family desperate for money. Against the wishes of her older brother Thomas, Sarah disguises herself and enters a dangerous new job.

Sarah soon learns that life in London is not as simple—or as easy—as it seems. She meets Jamie, a sullen, aggressive boy who helps her to adjust to the new conditions. But Jamie has dark secrets of his own, and his reluctance to trust people clashes with Sarah’s desire to know his history. As the city creeps towards winter, Sarah descends into a spiral of lies and secrets that threaten to put her in grave danger if her identity is discovered. And when tragedy strikes Sarah’s family, the staggering changes in her life may be enough to break her.

Logline:

During the Korean War, a South Korean girl is sent on an undercover mission to the North Korean territories to find and exploit a weakness in one of the North’s military leaders - but her own feelings for him threaten to upend her original mission.

Blurb:

“He’s the devil in disguise.”

That was the kind of man that everyone thought he was. Thousands of lives had been ended in his hands, families torn apart, homes consumed by flames-they feared him, they hated him, and they wanted him dead.

“He has no weaknesses.”

That was what they told her when they sent her to his side. Her mission? To uncover a single crack beneath the seemingly perfect facade of the devil, so that they could deal him the critical blow.

She thought she had prepared herself for everything that was to be expected.

She didn’t expect him.
