BOOK NEWS for November 2023: TWO Releases!

Love’s Fingerprints: a short story collection

Out now on all platforms (AmazonAppleB&NKobo, and more) is a women’s fiction short story collection for readers who enjoy a mix of relationship-focused tales. Some are happier, others sadder. Some are about first love while others explore life after divorce. There are young people and long married couples, too. 

 
This collection about love, family life, friends, and finding oneself contains 1 novelette and 12 short stories, including the award-winning “The Wish Box.” If you’re a fan of shorter fiction, I hope you’ll enjoy this one!
 

Not Another Roman Holiday: a novella

And…also available everywhere (AmazonAppleB&NKobo, and more) — released on November 26th — is a light & fun romantic comedy based on my longtime love of the classic Gregory Peck/Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday!!! If you’re a rom-com lover and would like an escapist Vespa ride through Rome, check out this novella! Story details are HERE!!
