The Corsican Widow Cover MEDIUM WEB

My second novel, The Corsican Widow, is now available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats. It’s set in Corsica and Marseille during the mid-late 18th century, a time of great turbulence for the island. Valeria Peretti, a young woman, must fight against her destiny and the strict morals of her Corsican village.

I write historical fiction, much of it inspired by and set either in France, where I live, or in Corsica, which I love. If you like what you see, you can get all my books on Amazon. Sometimes they are on promotion, so keep coming back or sign up for my Reader’s Club newsletter, which will give advance warning.

Happy reading!
