LEGACY, my first Scottish paranormal published in 1996, is being reprinted by Source Books, the queen of reprints, according to Loretta Barrett, my literary agent. She didn't really say that, but that was the implied message. I'm happy my book is being reprinted. It was my first paranormal published by Pocket Books, a division of Simon and Schuster, and first books rarely are widely distributed. Having said that, it's a very good book with, what was then, a unique presentation:

            Christina Murray, an American history professor, is informed she's inherited a house in Scotland.  The heroine travels across the Atlantic to meet her dying benefactor, a woman who takes one look at Christina's face and promptly dies. Through a series of troubling dreams featuring three of her ancestors, women who bear a startling resemblance to herself, Christina learns that she is the last of the female line of her family and the recipient of a four hundred-year-old curse. Unless she can absolve her ancestor of a terrible crime, she will meet the fate of Katrine Murray, Jeanne Maxwell and Mairi of Shiels. Legacy is the story of the shared quest of four women related by blood, separated by centuries and cursed by a fatal prophecy.

Release date: Fall-2011

  1. My most vivid memory of Scotland is of being at fog-shrouded Edinburgh Castle. I felt as if I would slip back in time at any moment! The rich history of Scotland makes it the perfect setting for your novel.
