The Disappearing Rose (the first book in my Time Rose series) didn’t win a recent contest it was entered in, but did make it into the top ten.
Below: One of the reviews that appeared on Amazon & Goodreads shortly after its release in August, 2013.

I love how some people are moved to fantasize about saving the Princes in the Tower, or in another book I read recently save Richard III, by using time travel. I enjoyed this book for younger readers very much, still being about 12 at heart, I guess. It presents the basic personalities involved, the political context, and points of history in easy-to-understand language, all wrapped up in an engaging story with likable characters. I wish we did know what happened to the sons of Edward IV, but this story is an emotionally satisfying and plausible idea of what might have been.
Tomorrow I’ll be guest blogging with Cellophane Queen, Marva Dasef, to promote Book Two, The Mud Rose.
