I love surrounding myself with all the stuff I’ve collected in my travels around the world, researching my novels. Giraffes are a special fondness, and you can spot at least two in this picture of my desk. One of my monitors is crazy-high, but that’s because I sometimes stand when I work. And there’s always a supply of coffee on hand!

About The Queen’s Handmaid and a Giveaway
Orphaned at birth, Lydia was raised as a servant in Cleopatra’s palace, working hard to please while keeping everyone at arm’s length. She’s been rejected and left with a broken heart too many times in her short life.
But then her dying mentor entrusts her with secret writings of the prophet Daniel and charges her to deliver this vital information to those watching for the promised King of Israel. Lydia must leave the nearest thing she’s had to a family and flee to Jerusalem. Once in the Holy City, she attaches herself to the newly appointed king, Herod the Great, as handmaid to Queen Mariamme.
Trapped among the scheming women of Herod’s political family—his sister, his wife, and their mothers—and forced to serve in the palace to protect her treasure, Lydia must deliver the scrolls before dark forces warring against the truth destroy all hope of the coming Messiah.
