Dear Cancer

The latest is a genealogy book... Checking Chapmans. If you are descended from the Chapman family of New London County, Connecticut, you should perk up your ears. I started with Joseph Chapman of Montville and brought his family down another four generations or more. Found people no one ever thought related and corrected errors from A History of Montville, Connecticut by Henry A. Baker.

Look for my books on and, etc..

Edited, some rough edges polished, and bright new covers. That is the hallmark of my re-released romance backlist.

You will still:

Twist legend into truth...

Enter an alternate reality where King Arthur's founding of the Round Table and knights' quests are not myth, but elements of a sterling period in history.

In Ann Tracy Marr's fantasy romances, King Arthur and Merlin left a rich legacy that influences life in Regency England.

Camelot is the seat of the royal court of Britain; Prinny avoids it and his parents like the plague. Chivalry is a way of life for gentlemen, while ladies delight in balls, Norwich shawls, and gossip.

The Council of Mages works with the government protecting the peace of the Isles, but magicians keep their abilities secret from a people who remember and recoil from Mordred's treachery. Solving mysteries and staving off disaster are bullet points on their resumes.

Mixed in are elements of the twenty-first century, dealing with such delightful subjects as climate change and governmental ethics in a Celtic/Regency manner.

Is it odd to mix Camelot and 21st century problems with Jane Austen's Regency? Perhaps, but readers and reviewers say it is oddly successful. I think it is lots of fun.

Like all star-crossed lovers, Katherine and Alexander make a muddle of their relationship in To His Mistress. His stubbornness is unequaled and she is delightfully clueless. Behind the scenes, two magicians lay a wager on the success of the marriage. Mixing human nature and magic produces unpredictable results. Ancient celtic influences abound.

In Round Table Magician and Thwarting Magic young, virile magicians find creating sparks with a lady as rewarding as making magic. One is a damn-your-eyes aristocrat, the other a whimsical admirer of kangaroos. The ladies they fall in love with are as different as a comet and the moon. Terrorism and global warming enter the picture in their own convoluted way.

Keeper of the Grail is Sir Sloane Johnstone. Overworked and underhappy, he decides to help Sarah Frampton find her father's missing painting. This leads him into intimate association with the Banshee Brigade. If they don't push him over the edge, they might teach him the joy of living. The Holy Grail introduces a mystic element.
