Meet A Discarded Son’s Miles Greene

Miles Walker Greene
Miles Walker Greene was born in 1835, the only son of Lewis Greene and his wife Matilda (Tilda) and is a twin brother to Isobel Fitzgerald’s mother, Martha. Tilda had not known she was carrying twins until she gave birth. Martha was born first but Miles took a long time to be born. All was well at first, and Lewis and Matilda were delighted to have an heir to the Greene Hall estate. Soon, however, it became evident that Miles was not developing like other children. Miles was examined by the Greene’s doctor and he was deemed to be – in the terminology of the time – a ‘simpleton’ or an ‘idiot’. Tilda blamed herself and could not bear to even look at her son and when she claimed he was beginnin...

Real Life Love vs Life as a Romance Author - Which is the Greater Challenge?


I've had a busy year. Though 2019 isn't nearly over, it has been one of the busiest years of my life as I planned my wedding, got married, and purchased my first home. Writing time suffered at the mercy of my hectic schedule and at times I considered abandoning one dream at the expense of another.  Things calmed down eventually and, as I spent some time in the quiet of my imagination I realized I am still a writer at heart. I have a long journey ahead of me as an author, one I am excited to embark upon.  Of course, it is easy to get discouraged at times. Though the reasons behind it were happy ones, I've been off the horse for a while now and this was a difficult game to play even when I was...

Didn’t want to stop


A short & sweet review for my WWII spy thriller,  Marriage before Death : C. Stringer 4.0 out of 5 stars Didn’t want to stop September 2, 2019 Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase I did not realize until the end of this book that I started reading a series and in the middle, so I felt a little disappointed when it stopped suddenly. However I was thrilled to find there were more and I could begin from the beginning. I think it will be a great series as I thoroughly enjoyed this one book out of order. Original link

If you wake up too soon, violent incidents may occur


Mr. Armstrong slammed his fist on the table, until the shield and cross-swords seemed to clack. “Start with your partner. What’s her name, again?” “Ashley.” “She’s an industrial designer, is she not?” “The best! Our startup would not have been the success it was without Ash—” “Perhaps so. But at this point, do we need her?” “Excuse me, sir?” “Given the new direction here,” said Mr. Armstrong, in a slow, grumbling tone as if talking to a rebellious child, “she can contribute little from now on.” “I beg to differ,” said Michael, his muscles stiffening. “Given any direction, her role is vital. May I explain it to you, sir?” “Please do.” “For the customers of this company—say, military planners,...

The memory of our first kiss


My time alone with Michael is about to come to an end.  No doubt, Michael knows it, too. In a blink, he brushes his lips over mine, ever so lightly. It is then that something wondrous begins to happen. I don’t mean the memory of our first kiss, although that moment—framed with autumn leaves aflame all around us—is a great marvel, too. The wondrous thing is something else entirely. It’s this sensation—oh, how do I describe it? A tingle, an itch?—down there, in my left foot. To be more precise, it’s in my pinky toe.  Oh wow! I can move it! “Goodbye,” says Michael in his softest voice, backing away. Oh no, don’t go! Not now, I beg him in my heart. With renewed urgency, I move my pinky toe again...
