"A fantasy thriller, it isnt about the Romanovs per se, but about a sort of Romanovian dynasty, if said
Romanovs were supernal rulers in were killed off by a power-hungry, possessed cousin...This is a tense, engaging fantasy thriller that is just a bit sassy or tongue in cheek and chock full of Russian flavor...A great read for a long winter weekend." -Russian Life Magazine

About the Author
began writing romantic fantasy novellas at the age of 12 in the wayback of a Plymouth Furywhich, as far as she recalls, never killed anyone who didnt have it coming. Born in Billings, Montana, she was soon whisked away to Tucson, Arizona where she spent most of her childhood ruining her eyes reading romance novels in the sun (and watching Star Trek marathons in the dark). Although she was repeatedly urged to learn a marketable skill in case she couldnt find a man to marry her, she received a B.A. in Creative Writing anyway from the University of Arizona.
She now lives in San Francisco with her son, two feline overlords who are convinced she is constantly plotting their death, and a cockatiel named Imhotep who punishes her for sins in a past life (and whom she frequently imagines tastily smoked, dried, and splayed on a stick like omul fished from Lake Baikal).
