About Gayle Mullen Pace

I have been writing my whole life, even if it was spinning stories in my head while cooking dinner or rocking babies at two o’clock in the morning. The stories have always been there. Maybe it was because we did more on our vacations than find a place to relax. We went to historic places, not just on vacations, but on day trips, as well, when the weather was nice enough for a picnic. Old cemeteries, grist mills, river ferries and Civil War battlefields—we visited as many places as we could.

My parents filled the house with books and I think every room had shelves. When we grew up and left home, my dad converted one of the bedrooms into a library. It seemed natural to take the stories in my head and begin writing them down. I wrote short stories all through school and continued after my marriage.

Life is passionate—good, bad, humorous—and the books I love most are brimming with all the passions that make people human. Realistic characters who strive to overcome their deepest fears and who live and love with every fiber of their being are the heart and soul of a good story. I wish you all of the best of life’s passion and many hours of happy reading!

UPDATE: 22 Aug 2014 - Book 2 of the De Montbrai Saga is currently on hold. I had an itch to continue with Book 2 of the Majesta Landing Series, so I'm scratching it. I hope you'll enjoy Tec Raines' story as much as I am writing it.

Review by: D Jones on June 23, 2012 :
Wonderfully written novel. Makes you feel like you're there, laughing, crying and loving with the characters. But what a surprise ending! Keep on writing!

Review by: Bette Copeland on June 17, 2012 :
What a beautiful and well written novel! I was completely swept away and literally could not stop reading! I purchased both books and read them in a day and half!!!
You madame made me cry, laugh, and truly made me feel like I was part of the story. Not many authors can actually do that these days. The cliff hanger at the end of this first book had me gasping for air and scrambling to pull up the second book! Love the characters, enjoyed the descriptions and will be reading this again!

This is an absolutely wonderful book. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading every chapter. It is well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next. I purposely purchased an e-reader just to download and read this book. It is well worth the time and money. Everyone should purchase and read it. It is great.

Review by: Alicia Miller on March 07, 2012 :
This book took me on a journey filled with historical references of the mid 19th century that was not over done. The story will take you through the pains and hardships of a young woman, Miranda, living in a Victorian brothel searching for a way to be free from the inevitable day that her mother's debt would come due.
This story will draw you in and not let go. I stayed up many late nights reading chapter after chapter unable to stop! It's a story that will leave you hanging wanting for more and I will definitely never forget it
