Julia’s Gifts Cover Reveal


My new novel series, Great War – Great Love, begins with Julia’s Gifts, which will be published on November 1, 2017.


As a young girl, Julia Murphy began buying gifts for her future spouse, a man whose likeness and personality she has conjured up in her mind, a man she calls her “beloved.”

Soon after the United States enters the Great War, Julia impulsively volunteers as a medical aid worker, with no experience or training. Will the realities of war dishearten her from pursuing her beloved? Will Julia’s naïve ‘gift scheme’ distract her from recognizing her true “Great Love?”

From Philadelphia to war-torn France, follow Julia as she transitions from unworldly young woman to compassionate volunteer.

My work in progress is called Julia’s Gifts. It’s a World War 1 Historical Romance Novella. Earlier this week, I was without internet access and took the opportunity to spend two days working on it. It’s set to be released later this year (if I can get my act together) and it’s about an American Medical Aid worker named Julia Murphy.
