When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.
Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.
Exclusive interview with the author:
1) What genre have you not yet written but really want to try?
Adult historical fiction
2) Which authors/books are you most influenced by?
On the YA and paranormal side, definitely J.K. Rowling 100%! On the mystery/thriller side, Daphne du Maurier.
3) When you got that first phone call announcing you had sold a novel, how did you react? How did you celebrate?
It was such an exciting day! My first phone call was to my dad, and he was so thrilled. I was in New York at the time, so I remember I went to Soho and took myself out for a celebratory pizza at Lombardi’s, Pinkberry for dessert, and then some shopping! 🙂
4) If you weren’t a writer, what job would you love to try out?
Broadway performer, playing the types of roles Sutton Foster does so brilliantly!
5) What’s your typical celebration ritual when you sell a new book or get exciting news about an existing one? Anything strange or quirky we should know about?
It always involves some kind of big, yummy meal! And then I start planning a trip to research and write the new book.
