I've found an author or actually 2 authors just recently. One I've met in person and the other only through her books.
Kathleen McGowan, NY Times Bestselling author, wrote The Expected One. I just finished it and I can't wait until The Book of Love hits the shelves. Actually, I've pre-ordered copies to grace the shelves of The Crystal Garden. The Expected One is a novel of intrigue from the perspective of Mary Magdalene and her current day bloodline Shepherdess. It takes place primarily in France which seems to be the locale of all the books I've been reading lately. Oh jet plane - any first class tickets for Magical Margaret as Queen Princess of the Universe?
I'll just have to travel to France via Kathleen's book and the other author I've been involved with - only through her novels. Tracy Chevalier is becoming a favorite. I just finished The Lady and the Unicorn which weaves a tale of characters involved in the making of the famous tapestry. Prior to reading that book, I read another by Tracy - The Virgin Blue. Now I have a pile of her novels on my nightstand waiting for me to curl up in bed. I plan on reading the Girl with a Pearl Earring and Falling Angels.
I must go and read now . . . my pillow calls me. . .
