Swash_ornamentDear Reader,

liartempressWhile living in Atlanta, I discovered the true stories of Belle Boyd, Emma Edmonds, Rose Greenhow, and Elizabeth Van Lew—four daring heroines who lied, seduced, wheedled, plundered, avenged, drank, stole, spied, and murdered their way through the Civil War.

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy was named a best book of 2014 by Library Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Amazon, and Flavorwire. The Los Angeles Times calls it “a gripping page-turner that moves at a breathtaking clip.”

Dear Reader,

BathshebaOne of the Bible’s most misunderstood and misjudged women is Bathsheba, wife of King David, and I’ve tried to bring her story to life. I’ve done careful research to imagine what Bathsheba must have been feeling and doing in the fascinating setting of life in David’s palace, with all the drama and turmoil that happened within those gates. If you’d like a chance to win one of five free copies, email my publicist at Blessings!
