In the Works
My next novel features Fiana who readers met as a child in ‘Longing for Home’. Fiana struggles to meet the incredible challenges of her childhood. She is not a super feminine child so I get to explore what it means to be a woman. She grows up to be a nurse in WWI. Her story allows me to explore my professional ancestry and honor the nurses who came before me.
