I am pleased to announce that my book The Serpentine Path has now been e-published and is available at Smashwords.
The Serpentine Path is the first book of four in a series that I have written about my ancestors. It tells of the romance between Susan Kirke, the daughter of a gentleman, and John Dean, the gardener on her father’s estate. Although these two characters were real people, my great-great-great-great-grandparents, I had to invent a great deal to embellish their story. This involved hours of fascinating research into life in England and Scotland in the eighteenth century.
I hope you will enjoy as much as I did learning about pleasure gardens, masquerades, impressment, Scottish wedding traditions, and many other details as John and Susan elope and set out together to start a new life of adventure that will lead them to four countries on two continents.
Book 4 in the series A Garden in the Wilderness is being published by Borealis Press in Ottawa and will be available at the end of March.
