At the close of the nineteenth century, Vivian Alderdice is twenty-six, unmarried, and has no prospective suitors. Her brother’s tragic plight the year before left her and her mother on shaky ground with the San Francisco blue bloods of Nob Hill, and the only way they can re-establish their social position is to win the heart of Monte Leblanc, a wealthy Canadian in search of a wife and looking to become a member of the exclusive Washington Street society. But a young man on the train tells Vivian things about her grandmother that shake her to the core. Even as she is pursued by the debonair Monte Leblanc, Vivian can’t avoid ghosts from the past who send her on a journey she is reluctant to take.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This is the third book of the Waxwood Series, so obviously, the series inspired me :-). I also wanted to bring back Vivian as a main character and move on with her journey of discovery and show readers where she goes next as the new century (20th century, that is) approaches. In addition, reading about women's suffragism, especially with 2020 being the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, inspired me.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Most of them originally came from a novel I wrote in 3 voices in 2014 that I decided to break up into a series of 4 books. I wanted to feature a wealthy San Francisco family that was, in what we would call in our modern era, a "disfunctional family." All three members of the Alderdice family developed from there.
