COMING SOON!
Sally Stiles’ long-awaited novel,
LIKE A MASK DANCING, A TANZANIAN STORY
“After three weeks in this vast, alluring country, Anna Chadwick has met
Missionaries and Muslims, Maasai sheep herders, expatriates committed and indifferent. She’s slept among lions and giraffes and learned of men who chewed off cats’ heads. She’s seen her husband angry and determined to save what may be impossible to save. She’s seen all this through the long lens of a visitor and now resolves to zoom in closer.  She resolves to make Africa her home.”


WATCH FOR IT!
John Conlee’s latest novel, THE CHAUCER CODEX, will be out soon!
A young medieval scholar goes to Cornwall to investigate a mysterious manuscript. Does it contain a previously unknown Chaucer poem? As he and his Oxford mentor seek the answer, he is stalked in an eerie, moon-lit churchyard, victimized by determined car thieves, threatened in an alley behind a pub, and encounters beguiling women, one of whom teaches him that Cornish mermaids can pose serious threats to mortal men.


Roger Conlee’s newest historical novel, the acclaimed AFTER THE WIND,
takes place during the Korean War and includes such notables as William
Randolph Hearst, Marion Davies and Bela Lugosi.
