In it, Jennifer seamlessly braids together the stories of three women: Veronica, Lena, and Charlotte, and imagines an alternate history for the Romanov family—one in which a secret fifth daughter, smuggled out of Russia before the revolution, continues the royal lineage to dramatic and unexpected consequences.Learn more here.

I’m still playing catch up in the studio after my life-changing experience at the Salt Cay Writers Retreat. I have much wisdom to share from the retreat, but have been sidetracked by needing to nail these novel revisions before inspiration slips away. In the meantime, I’ve a treat in store: debut novelist Jennifer Laam (THE SECRET DAUGHTER OF THE TSAR) has agreed to be my guest this Friday. We’ll discuss creativity, writing, the Romanovs, and much more. There’s even a book giveaway!
