I’ve always been a storyteller. As a young child I’d hasten sleep by creating little stories to tell myself based on whatever was my current favorite TV show. Long before the age of I-phones and video games, my friends and I would run screaming through the neighborhood yards dawn to dusk acting out adventures starring our favorite TV and movie heroes and heroines.
Later, as a young adult with kids of my own, I began building, painting and competing with military or fanciful miniatures in many of the Atlantic Coast model shows. I noticed the figures that won gold medals or sold were always the ones that somehow told a story. Instead of just standing at attention or marching, my soldier might be depicted reading a letter from home or protecting a lady friend.
I worked for years as a designer illustrator. Many of the class rings you see on the fingers of high school, college and military academy graduates began as my design. It was toward the end of this career that I began to write.
Since then, I’ve had a dozen short stories and e-novels published, many with an exotic or New England background, a dash of adventure, a nasty villain, and a hero or heroine who does eventually win the girl.
My current novel is no exception. Set in late nineteenth century New England, Like Clockwork is a Steampunk Romance centering around the stormy relationship of Irish heiress, Kathleen McBride, and disgraced Boston cop turned reluctant seaman, turned airship crafter, Scott Wildethorne. Enhanced with Yankee history, steampunk gadgetry and oddities, Like Clockwork reveals a tightly wound tale taunt with human frailty and soul-harrowing peril. Its a tale too of paranormal vengence and raw passion that brings two unlikely lost souls-who would have felt right at home in Wuthering Heights-together for all eternity. Look for it this summer from Tell-Tale Publishing Group.
