I’m excited to share some special news with you….it’s official! My debut novel #TheFlorentineQuilt will be published next year with Odyssey Books and I couldn’t be more delighted to share this story with you.

🧵For those of you who have encouraged me on my journey— and there are many, many wonderful people in the writing community, I thank you for your ongoing patience, faith and support.

🪡The Florentine Quilt is a dual narrative set in Cornwall, Italy and Melbourne. Textile conservator, Theodora, is drawn to a quilt depicting the legendary tale of Tristan and Isolde. But while the quilt chronicles Tristan’s life, Isolde’s story is missing. A garden in Sicily is all that remains of a woman exiled from Queen Victoria’s court— the story of her past, forgotten. As Theodora is challenged to confront knowledge she has denied since childhood, the discovery of her ancestor, Amelia, suggests she paid a great price for her differences. The Florentine quilt holds the key to the women's stories.

I look forward to introducing you to my story and its cast of characters soon.
