I am greatly indebted to two dear friends and fellow writers, Donna Fletcher, who encouraged me to bring my romance backlist to readers in e-format, and Debra Webb who suggested – and named - this brand new prequel to Only Yesterday. These two terrific friends have been in my life a long time, and they are hereby ordered to stick around till after I’m gone. I don’t know what I’d do without them.
When I started writing this paranormal romance, I knew I would take my heroine back in time to the Titanic. Music is in my bones (I play piano, sing in the church choir and compose a few blues lyrics), so I also knew the hero would be the band leader who went down with the ship. The real band leader was thirty-three-year-old Wallace Hartley, the courageous violinist who assembled the two bands on board to calm the other passengers with music as the great ship sank. He is memorialized with a plaque at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall, but I have kept his spirit alive in the fictional character of William Wesley.
