The Blonde Samurai appears on every page of the FreshFiction.com website today and also in the Fresh Pick Newsletter.
I’m very honored to be a Fresh Pick. According to the email I received–
“The Fresh Pick is chosen by a group of readers…”
Writing is a solitary profession, but I can tell you that as a writer, my characters make me laugh, angry at times (when they don’t do what you tell them) and cry.
I remember feeling the anguish of my heroine, Katie, when she feared she would never have a child; or how much she missed her Irish-American family when she first arrived in Japan; how the inimitable Mr. Fawkes (an Englishman who was her go-between) made her laugh; and how amazed she was to discover that the Empress of Japan was a charming young woman who shared her interest in fashion.
Then there was Shintaro.
“Yet the first man I took to my bed after my wedding night was not my husband—or yours—but one of the most mysterious, elusive and enigmatic men in all Japan. A samurai.
“His name was Shintaro.”
I’m thrilled that the readers at FreshFiction.com also enjoyed the adventures of Lady Carlton née Katie O’Roarke. Thank you!!
The Blonde Samurai
“She embraced the way of the warrior. Two swords. Two loves.”
