I love New York City. The people are damn serious about the way they live life. They work hard and play hard and needless to say, it got me thinking. Were the people of New York City just as hard core back in 1830 as they are now? You better believe they were. And those poor bastards didn't have our modern conveniences, either. Back in 1830, people were trying to pave dirt streets with gold, even though they had nothing but sweat. So what happens when an American-Irish woman named Georgia with only coal clutched in each hand meets a British aristocrat who only ever had gold? You get a story known as the Prince and the Pauperette. But why stop there? After all, there is so much more to a story than poor vs. rich. I wanted to get down and dirty and twisted, digging into the real facets of life back in 1830, while giving you a good laugh and a good cry. As a writer, I get to play god (bwahahaha) and the idea of a person starting over against their will has always fascinated me. So I took away the hero's memory and made him crawl back to the basics in life. Basics he forgot to appreciate. Basics he never thought he'd be able to return to. And he does it all while touching the life of one very special woman who makes him realize true love is not only real but priceless. I hope you enjoy my historical version of the Prince and the Pauper.
