First Comes Death
A North and South auxiliary book[br]
Margaret Hale was pointed out to John Thornton by the woman he escorted to a funeral. Instantly, he is inexplicably drawn to her. Coming alive for the first time in his life, he vows that she will be his, regardless that they have never met. Being hundreds of miles from home, he is undaunted until an unforeseen mystery hampers his quest at every turn. How can he make her fall in love with him? What about his responsibilities in Milton, or this other woman, or Margaret, herself? John Thornton must find a way to make it happen.

“Miss Hale appears to be very close to you. This is quite forward of me, but from one gentleman to another, I am asking if you’re intentions are more than a family friend?” John knew that question was remarkably ill timed. He could not help himself and he knew the astute Mr. Bell would soon see through his masked facade.

“Margaret, have you read much on Chaucer?”
“Very little, I am afraid.”
“In one of his poems from the late 14th century, he used a phrase that is now becoming common. Have you ever heard of the expression Love at First Sight?”
“Yes, I have read that line several times in some of the female author books which are mostly romantic writings. I have never thought that such a phenomenon was real because I have only read the phrase in fiction novels. What is it that you are trying to tell me?”
My Purpose To Writing
I want everyone to know that I write because I love the characters of John Thornton and Margaret Hale. I cannot get enough of the grand love story. My books are intended to be auxiliary books of these character, in their towns, with the same people, but are *NEW* love stories. They are not continuations from the Gaskell story. They are to fall in love again and again in new situations. Their love for each other is powerful. There are intimate scenes in nearly all of the books. If you are a romance reader, you know this is a common practice. There is real intimacy between them but has not and will never be the main focal point in my books. If romantic scenes are offensive, do not buy these books. These books are not serialized and can be read in any order because they are all different and unique stories. I am not a professional author and consider myself more of a story-teller or novelist than an author. I am already hearing about favored new characters that are introduced and people asking for a second book to follow up on a particular title. I thank my many readers and love hearing from all of you.
