|Pre-order for ebook only|
So excited to announce that my fourth suspenseful historical novel is available on amazon for Pre-Order. To be delivered to your kindle on May 18, 2021!
"In 1898, the Portland Gale tore across Provincetown on Cape Cod's coast. Walter Ellis, a descendant of legendary Maria Hallett, loses his ship and livelihood. Forced to leave his family behind, he seeks gold in Alaska but never returns. Present day Nancy Caldwell travels to Alaska to visit family. She discovers an old letter destined for Provincetown from 1899 but never sent. Back home on Cape Cod, a 1780s house, a hidden 'pigeon's blood' ruby ring, and a past nemesis complicate Nancy's search for the missing fisherman."
It's only been a few years since the first creative spark popped into my brain and ignited this multi-generational family saga.
During our semi-annual visit with our middle son, Tim, and his family in Alaska, we were on the island of Juneau.
|Landing in Juneau|
|Tim and Jenn's home|
One morning, we woke to a storm-tossed exposed ocean floor. Outside their expansive windows overlooking the mysterious Pacific Ocean was a large white object, young Tim went to explore.

We watched as our son walked further and further away until he stopped and took some pictures. We waited for his return. Surprisingly, it was the skeleton of what looked like a complete leg. After finally uncovering proof that the skeleton belonged to a large animal, we all breathed a sigh of relief.
But my imagination took off and my plotting began for an adventure from one end of the country in Provincetown, to the other in Juneau and back again to Cape Cod.
Below is a book trailer that I made.
I'll keep you posted as to the date when you will be able to read this wonderful story as an ebook or paperback. Stay tuned.
