Born to a runaway Dutch teen and a proud Iroquois brave, raised in her white uncle’s frontier home, Genesee visits her mother’s family in colonial Albany. Here she meets a young Englishman, and falls in love. He’s as much of an outcast as his “half-breed” girl, for Alexander was born on ‘the wrong side of the blanket. Forbidden to marry him, Genesee is sent back to her frontier home. The sudden onset of the American Revolution sets the New York frontier ablaze, and Genesee is carried into captivity. She does many hard things in order to survive but always dreams of her lost love. Alexander is a man on fire when he learns of her fate, but will he dare to face down an entire Cayuga town in order to save her?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I believe in putting the “historical” into romances which are set in earlier time periods. If you want to REALLY time travel–you’ve got to feel the cold, the heat and the lack of good plumbing, as well as the danger and excitement of a world in “fancy dress”. 🙂
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t talk about it. Write it! And remember to consult your old H.S. grammar!
“Not all who wander are lost.” Juliet Waldron earned a B. A. in English, but has worked at jobs ranging from artist’s model to brokerage. Thirty years ago, after the kids left home, she dropped out of 9-5 and began to write, hoping to create a genuine time travel experience for herself—and her readers. She loves her grandkids and her kitty cats, takes long, long hikes, reads non-fiction and watches the sky. For ‘adventure’, she rides behind her husband of 50 years on his “bucket list” black Hyabusa.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was working on a series of stories set in the American Revolutionary War and got inspired to write a pair of romantic historicals set in places which I knew well, The dramatic landscape of the Hudson Valley and the Finger Lake Region. It inspired me to imagine a world in which this now tame landscape was actually full of Indians, bandits, and brave homesteaders–very much the Wild, Wild East!
