Butterfly Swords is a finalist in the Historical Romance category for the Golden Heart©!
At 7:59 am I checked the clock and at 8:00am the phone rang! It was Terri Brisbin from RWA telling me that Butterfly Swords had finalled. I literally sank to the floor.
More later, for now — I bask!

I know as an avid reader of historical fiction, I’m always looking for a compelling story and setting. I’m actually more drawn to stories with more unique and exotic settings too.
