2012 is certainly shaping up to be an awesome year. Not only will Dear Julia release in June, but The Wild Rose Press has now also contracted An Innocent Abroad, my 1920s novella set on the Amalfi coast of Italy. Now I get to play with fun stuff like briefing the cover artist, and explaining to everyone why I’m smiling.

Once again, thanks go to my lovely editor Nan Swanson at TWRP, and also to Rosa Bella of Bell’Avventura who helped me with background information and an amazing collection of period photographs.
