Unforgettable Miss Baldwin
The controversy began in 1840. By the time Allie Baldwin got involved with suffrage in 1886 the battle was ongoing and had not gotten far. Men were still balking and complaining about women not being smart enough to understand politics, and besides, they were bred to be home, the men said. It all seemed hopeless, but Allie saved the day with her tenacity, hard work, and writings that spread the word.
In a whirlwind romance, a lovely New York socialite marries a fêted, debonair author. But beneath the charm is a cheating husband addicted to hasheesh. Her dream marriage turns sour and the simplicity of her life runs amok when a handsome stranger, her husband’s business partner, threatens her staunch loyalty to her wayward husband, forcing her to face the ugly truth about her marriage.

I write and blog about art history, architecture, and interior design. And, you guessed it, I write fiction, too. Writing and painting are my two passions. These days, my main focus (between writing projects) is to complete my painting project, entitled Images of Coney Island for a show at the end of 2016.
