“In The Works”

My co-writer, John Rice, and I have researched and written a book called THE GHOST OF CLEOPATRA.  It is a historical fiction story based on the life of  Edmonia Lewis, a half-Native American and half-African American orphan who, in the nineteenth century, goes from a wigwam to an artist’s studio in Rome.  In making this leap, Edmonia struggles with who she is, where she fits in, and how to cope with doing so much alone.   Fortunately, she is not completely alone, because a ghost—the Ghost of Cleopatra—appears to Edmonia periodically in mysterious ways and leads her to carve her greatest masterpiece.  This book can definitely be enjoyed by adults but is especially written for teens, because their quest—-like Edmonia’s—is to find their place in the world.  I will announce to all of my blog followers when THE GHOST OF CLEOPATRA comes out in print.
