Eileen, “The Spirit Princess of New York,” has spent her life on the stage, supporting her family just as her mother and grandmother before her. And like her predecessors, she knows that one day her powers will drive her insane.
But while traveling in London, Eileen meets the Temple siblings, a brother and sister who show her there might be another way–a way that doesn’t involve stage dramatics and bending to the every whim of her father and grandfather. A way that might allow her to truly be herself with the woman she loves for the first time.
The longer Eileen is in London, the more she realizes that her family isn’t want it seems–and there might be hope on the horizon, after all, if she’s brave enough to make the change. But what will it cost in the end?
AJ Marshall Book 1
Aurora Jane “AJ” Marshall has wanted to be a reporter from the day she first sat on her father’s lap reading the headlines. The 1920s are supposed to be all about freedom, and women are flaunting their independence as voting flappers who drive cars and smoke cigarettes. Well, AJ can’t smoke because of her asthma, and her best friend Oliver keeps telling her not to drive because of her bad vision. But what does he know? He’s a ghost!
When an airship crashes just outside of Chicago, AJ knows her chance for a big byline is at hand. Could it be pirates? Mobsters? Or is it the mysterious Ghost Ship, linked to missing people and ghosts all over the city? There’s only one way to find out. AJ Marshall is on the case.
She just has to convince her old classmate and rival, Jasper, to give up his claim to the story. But Jasper has a lead of his own, and it might be more beneficial if they help each other…or will it?
It is difficult enough in this age of awareness to be autistic, but in 1918 it didn’t yet exist as a diagnosis.
With no vocabulary to describe her experiences or explain why certain things bother her, Julia Grace must navigate the social minefield that is Mt. Sinai School for Young Ladies. She leans on her best friend and roommate, Ada Brooks, for support. Ada, who loves her despite her quirks and acts as interpreter for the social cues Julia is prone to missing.
But when Ada is found dead one morning before classes all that crumbles. To make matters worse, the police don’t seem to care, saying she was “asking for it” and they don’t want to prosecute the boy responsible. Maybe that’s why Ada’s spirit can’t rest and continues to roam the halls of the school, growing increasingly angry and violent.
Enraged, Julia sets out on a mission to find the killer and make him pay. But the influenza pandemic sweeping the country-and the entire world-is closing in on their isolated corner of Ohio, and it’s only a matter of time before it breeches the walls of Mt. Sinai. If Julia has any hope of accomplishing anything, she’ll have to win over her classmates and get their help in her plan.
Columbus, Ohio in 1922 is supposed to be a dry city, but most people still know where to go to find booze. Sixteen-year-old Dru Faust isn’t looking for a drink though; she just wants to dance. But when a new moonshine hits the market and starts sending people to the hospital–including one of her best friends–she will do anything to track down the people responsible.
White Rose Railroad Book 1
Sophia Andrews was fully prepared for her husband to die fighting for the Union–or at least, as prepared as one can be for such an eventuality. She was not expecting him to be murdered in cold blood on the streets of Washington D.C. just before mustering out.
Though the Army would have her believe Confederate sympathizers killed her husband, a deathbed visitation from his ghost and a conversation with the only witness convince her otherwise. Sophia launches her own investigation, uncovering a plot to seize her husband’s railroad company and making herself the killer’s next target.
Faced with the choice between signing over the company and risking not only her own life, but that of her daughter, Sophia puts it all on the line to draw out her husband’s murderer. While suffering from a mysterious illness she follows the clues from Buffalo to an isolated sanatorium and checks herself in. Can she find the evidence she needs and escape before the killer ensures she’s locked away forever?
In 1862, the Republic of Quebec has a constitutional monarchy, established ninety years before by Marie Antoinette, who fled France’s revolution. Under the influence of its matriarchal leaders, Quebec is the first country to grant equal rights to all citizens, regardless of gender.
Louise Drapeau is willing and eager to take advantage of these rights as she travels from her small town to the capital to join the most elite fighting force in the country, the all-female Queen’s Guard, also known as the Musketeers. She’s barely in the city twenty-four hours, however, when she uncovers a plot to kill the queen, headed by Quebec’s First Minister, Cardinal Lefebvre.
With the help of her three new friends—Portia, Athena, and Arabella—Louise must unravel the increasingly complex politics of the palace in order to not only save the queen but to keep neutral Quebec out of the Civil War raging just a few hundred miles south in the United States.
Surely this will be enough to get her into the Musketeers—if she can survive.
