My newest historical fiction novel, Katie’s Ladies, looks like it will be another hit. The book is a sequel to Three Lives of Peter Novak. The story begins with the death of her business partner. Katie is forced to take over the Clairton Savings and Loan as sole proprietor. The business under her direction continues to thrive and catches the eye of a young journalist, Homer Hammer. He does a story about Katie, an immigrant who arrived in the U.S.A. at age 15 under false pretenses. World War One closed shipping lanes and prevented her return home. Coerced into a marriage with Peter Novak, an “old man” ten years her senior, Katie makes the best of the hand Fate has dealt her.
Her accomplishments catch the eye of Lucy Burns, leader of the Women’s Suffrage movement. Lucy convinces Katie to join the movement and he result is a the embracing of a tumultuous time in history.
The story includes suicide, murder, gender bending, love, family, betrayal, and infidelity. It also marks the 100th anniversary of passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Katie’s Ladies, as well as Three Lives of Peter Novak and the memoir 50 Shades of Grades, My Journey Through Wacademia, are all available through Amazon.com, Barnesandnobel,com or any traditional bookseller or vendor.
