Editorial Reviews

From the Author

From Chapter 1:
An unwanted spike of pity cut through him, a gut-deep need to end it and save her,but pirates were not compassionate. Jax grabbed her shoulder and hauled her above the waterline. Still she refused to grasp onto him.
"Choosenow, the bottom of the river or me!" His voice was harsh and loud. "Choose!"Then he let her go. Waited for her to grab hold of him like any rational person would.
Instead,she went under again.
"Blast it."His heart pounded, the tension churned, and every instinct pushed for him to simply grab her and haul her back to safety.
The Thames was a killer, it had dangerous and changeable currents and undertows like any body of water, but illness was the stealthier killer. London's factory runoff, its sewerage, its garbage all ran into the river in addition to it being the graveyard of the criminal and poor. The longer both of them stayed in the water the more of it she'd swallow, and the danger wouldn't stop once he got her safe. She could come down with some disease and had no body weight to see it through. The financial loss to him and his crew, would be substantial, let alone the fallout from Moriata after his oath to return her.
And yet he had to push her now, he felt it like a tangible force, her will against his.
Seconds passed like minutes.
Every part of him focused on where she was in the water, watching shadows, swirls of fabric, making damn sure he could get her, could ensure the current wouldn't suddenly tug her under and away.
He and his crew, men who lived on the water, could hold their breath longer than most people. You learned to dive deep, you chased sinking plunder, you chased sinking mates, you dived with the half-naked pearl divers as they swam like sea sirens for eons under the water. But not this little pocket of life, she would only know how to hold her breath in the bath. Yet still she didn't reach for him. Damn but he admired that as much as he cursed her for it.
The exact moment he started to doubt his course of action, thought he was cutting it too fine, a small hand clasped onto his shirt and pulled. He trod water and let her pull herself out and climb against his chest like a soaked kitten clawing its way up onto his shoulders. She coughed as he made quick work of untying the death trap of a cape, winding it up over his arm out of the deeper currents.
Her small fabric-covered face hung over his shoulder coughing and gasping while little claw like fingers dug into his shoulders for dear life. A strange flipping sensation rolled in his belly.
Trouble.Trouble. Trouble.

About the Author

Q: What do you write?A: I write lush, sensual stories set in Victorian England. They skirt the edge of Gothic eroticism and dark romanticism giving them a rich, moody feel.***
Q: What would you say are your influences?
A: I am strongly influenced by fairy-tales... not the Walt Disney kind, but how they used to be told; the old ones that held real darkness to overcome, were often darkly sexual and where the rewards for undertaking the journey were often not what you expected. Also Jung, his collective unconscious, synchronicity, and archetypes. I have a deep connection with symbols, story and the human spirit which I aim to express in my writing.***
Q: What drives you to write the characters you do? They are not typical of the genre.
A: I have a deep affection for the wounds and shadows which make us uniquely and poignantly beautiful.  Deep inner wounds are my speciality. Like many of us, my heart has been broken and bruised ... the cracks and breaks lovingly tended. These breaks have added depth, compassion, equanimity and knowledge to my life. More often than not it is these breaks which are the well that I draw on in living, more than the light joyous moments. Naturally, the dark and broken beauty of life is the landscape I would find myself writing in.***
Q: Why the Victorian Era?
A:I chose the Victorian era because it is very suitable to the moodiness and deep seated sexuality that comes from our shadow self, from our breaks and wounds. And this is what I like to write.
It also holds the seeds of modern life which allows me to choose themes and topics that resonate with me and I think resonate with readers.
