My work as an educator, enthusiasm for the Elizabethan Era and admiration of women who dare to break the mold, led me to tell the story of the remarkable Amelia Bassano, the author of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets.
I’ve had seven non-fiction books published under another name. I live beside 900 year old ruins with a Siberian Husky who howls at its ghosts (hopefully not Amelia's).
“Rollicking . . . infinite variety . . . sure to please fans of Tudor-focused fiction.” Kirkus Reviews. Based on true events, gifted poet Amelia Bassano defies the law and secretly writes Shakespeare’s plays. Driven into collision with ruthless authorities who will stop at nothing to eliminate a willful woman, Amelia will have to use all her cunning to save her family and find unreachable freedom.
