Pirates - New Orleans and Me




Thanks to Ginger, I am enjoying reading all the guest blogs this week and getting to know other authors.
I live in Louisiana and what better setting for books than New Orleans. The city is rich in history.

Historical Romance, Bride of Passion is set in New Orleans.
If you like pirates, (move over Johnny Depp) you'll fall for Andreas.

Krista.... Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance :”Claret is every bit of her name; rich and full of life. She is not one to be put down for nothing. Andreas made me swoon, and at the heart of him beat a true heart. I loved watching their relationship develop over time. This was one romance that had me from the beginning. I could not get enough and the setting made the story come more alive. Romance on the high seas is definitely something that will get you going from the first page.”

All my author’s royalties from the sales of this book will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Baton Rouge to help in research to find a cure. Our grandson, Casey, has Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening disease. He is eleven years old and a very special and an active boy.

What a beautiful and evocative cover! And how could I not admire your giving all your royalties to such a worthy cause. That's full of awesome :)

Thanks Rhonda
Trish Fitzgerald is my cover artist. She does great covers. Trish is from Irland and lives now in Germany. It's amazing how authors, cover artist, etc. can be so far away, by yet so close together.

Connie,
I know what it is to love a grandson so much that you'd do anything to help him. Fortunately, my sweet Spencer's developmental delays are not life threatening, rather life-altering. If only we spent more money on finding disease cures instead of sending money to the leaders of foreign countries who detest the United States. Sorry to get a little political, but it pisses me off when we have so much that needs to be done here at home. :)
