Thanks for visiting, and here's what's new!

COMING June 1, 2015! 

Lady of the Imperial City is a Japanese historical set in Heian Japan in the year 1001.  A less than ideal lady, though a paragon among her peers, faces a life of sexual servitude unless she defies convention and honor with a less than ideal gentleman.  Experience the imperial city of Kyō and its elite society through the eyes of one from the center of acceptance.

The reviewer on this book summed it up perfectly when she said "Pride and Prejudice meets The Tale of Genji."
