Ah, my GOLDEN books. Also known as The GOLDEN Universe. The unexpected, totally improvised and out-of-the-blue novels I became very, very invested in and that have a giant place in my heart.

Historical Fiction—a genre I never, ever thought I would write. The research, the struggle to stick to the facts, the decisions to make in terms of characters and places and times… no, thank you. Not that I didn’t like reading it—I absolutely LOVE tales of princesses and princes and servants and gowns and carriages. As you might have seen in the About Me section, I’m obsessed with seventeenth/eighteenth/early-nineteenth century Europe, and I also have a soft spot for all things British monarchy. Give me all the Tudors and White Queen and White Princess shows; give me all the Dan Jones books about the Plantagenets and the Wars of Roses; and DUH, give me all the History-inspired but actually fantasy books like A Song of Ice and Fire; but please, please, don’t ask me to write them.

… well, that is, until last year (2018). I stumbled upon a few really good Historical Fiction/Fantasy books on Wattpad (fantasy because they took place in made-up countries with fictional rulers) and I thought… you know what? I want to do that. I want to write my own royal characters and my own royal stories and my own countries.

That got me into trouble… because ideas formed and characters came to life and a #justwriteit contest popped up on Wattpad just in time for me to compose a 10,000 word short-story called The Golden Flower (which is now being expanded into a full-length novel… slooooowwwwllllyyyyy) and detailing a rags to riches and back to rags type of story about a golden-haired girl with a mysterious background.

Needless to say, though I only wrote a short-story… as I waited for the results of this contest, I was totally researching and collecting images on Pinterest and plotting a full-length novel… and then a sequel… and then another sequel…

… and then when The Golden Flower was one of the two winners of the contest, THAT WAS IT. The GOLDEN series was born, and I ended up adding a fifth book to wrap up the series (which I’m writing/editing at the time of typing this, so it’s not yet available to read on Wattpad).

I made up two countries and created detailed maps of them, drew floor-plans, invented cities and provinces (and gave them all awesome fantasy/historical names), characters and backgrounds, aesthetics and headers and banners—and the Golden series took off.

There are many, many characters in this series (no, I’m not talking Game of Thrones level, but still) and I’ve enjoyed writing about each one, even the bad ones (okay, yes, especially the bad ones). Kings and Princes and Queens and Princesses and Dowagers and servants and nobles and mean, mean, mean ladies. Oh, the fun I’ve had… and am still having.

The GOLDEN series—and its spin-offs, of which there will be three… four… five? I have no clue—has been my main focus for a while now, which is why I’m able to pop out book after book without taking a single breath. It’s where I go to relax, to unwind, to focus, to erase doubts and depression and anxiety… because I’ve found that Marguerite and Céleste are kind of my best friends, and writing about them transports me out of this crazy world and into theirs—late eighteenth century French/British/German Europe. And I love it there.These novels are written in third-person past-tense, alternating between Marguerite & Céleste’s POV’s, usually keeping them equal in each book though Marguerite does have one or two more (since she’s technically the main main character). Will I publish them? One day, once I’ve got them all sorted out and revised and less complicated. Because they’re super complicated… but oh so easy to devour.

THE GOLDEN FLOWER

Living in royalty can’t be so bad, right?
But… what if you’re not technically royal?

In late eighteenth century Europe, nestled in eastern France, is a peaceful kingdom called Totresia. A carriage wreck disturbs that peace when found by Totresian King Edouard and his wife, Queen Clémentine. The accident’s significance has a ripple-effect on the entire country, and its only survivor? A baby girl, the same age as Edouard’s first-born son, Antoine. This baby girl–Marguerite, nicknamed “the flower that braved the storm”–has to learn the intricacies of growing up as a foster-child in a royal household, and what being nobility entails. And how being an outsider to the royal blood-line could compromise all that was promised to her–especially if a member of said royal household dislikes her. Marguerite’s proximity with the Crown Prince, Antoine; her frolicking with the Princes, Sébastien and Jules; and her sisterly feelings towards the Princess, Cordelia–all are jeopardized by individuals with foul intentions and blackened hearts, hiding in darkened corridors of the magnificent Torrinni Castle.
