About Tides of Blue:
*2023 – WINNER – National Excellence in Romantic Fiction Award (NERFA) – Best First Book
2023 – FINALIST – American Fiction Award
Let the sea glass tell the story. Follow the trail of a cobalt blue poison bottle and its shards once it is tossed into the river after a devastating series of events involving life, love, and murder in the 1800s. The bottle wends its way to the Chesapeake Bay where it shatters, the shards then riding the tides, becoming pieces of a new life and romance over a century later.
Anna Grace is trapped in an abusive marriage with a man she does not love, forced to live on a Maryland plantation far from her Philadelphia home. An innocent cobalt blue medicine bottle becomes her way to freedom and love. Beth flees an abusive relationship, making a fresh start on the coast of the Chesapeake. She discovers a love for sea glass, finding shards along the bay shoreline. With the discovery, she’ll find a piece of a rare cobalt blue poison bottle that will lead her to unexpected love.
Both women will find their courage and the love they deserve, both tied to the simple cobalt blue bottle through time and tides.
About Currents of Blue:
Louisa never expected to fall in love on her summer vacation in 1918, but Willie swept her off her feet. Their love was clandestine with pressures from both Louisa and Willie’s families. But it was World War I that interrupted their happy ending. Unsure if she will ever see him again, Louisa bids farewell to Willie. She bides her time nursing the barrage of wounded soldiers returning to Baltimore, searching for Willie in each one. Will her love return to her again, or will their romance be a fleeting one?
It’s 1969, the summer of love, and Ellie’s world is chock full of fantastic possibilities. She spends the summer with her hippie aunt and unexpectedly falls in love with John. But the Vietnam War is a shadow looming at her world’s outer edge. The realities of war shock her when John is unexpectedly called up. Will her world ever be the same again?
Touching sea glass is touching history. Touching sea glass is touching someone’s story. The shards of a cobalt blue poison bottle thrown into the Sassafras River near the Chesapeake Bay in 1860 are treasures found in other times, other lives, and other loves. Follow the lives and loves of two women and sea glass shards found in 1918 and 1969 along the shores of the bay.
