Hi, everyone! I am a historical fiction writer specializing in Shakespearean themes. My grandmother, an English professor, gave me a volume of Shakespeare's plays when I was eleven, inspiring me to delve further into the rich Elizabethan language. Eleven years ago I began the research leading to the publication of my first novel "Blood and Ink," an epic tale of lost dreams, spurned love, jealousy and deception in Tudor England as the two men, William Shakespeare and Kit Marlowe, fight for one name and the famous works now known as the Shakespeare Folio. I am a true Stratfordian (despite the topic of my novel "Blood and Ink"), a Marlowe fan, a member of the Marlowe Society, the Shakespeare Fellowship and a signer of the Declaration of Intent for the Shakespeare Authorship Debate. My new series titled "The Fractured Shakespeare Series" will tackle adapting each play into a historical fiction novel. I have traveled to England three times for intensive research and debate workshops and a graduate of the intense training workshop "The Writer's Retreat Workshop" founded by Gary Provost and hosted by Jason Sitzes. I am also a blogger for my blog "The Jabberwocky Blog" on WordPress. I live in Georgia with my husband and a Scottish Terrier named Maggie.
