I have had many people ask me when I am releasing the prequel to She’s Only Seventeen. Honestly, I have worked on it some and it’s about 99% finished but I’m just working on the extra push to finish it up.

As with its sequel, Just a Small Town Girl will feature controversial subjects such as heavy drug use and sex. Where it’s sequel focuses on sex as a way to communicate, this novel will feature heavy and graphic drug use. It will show the effects of constant drug use and how dangerous it can be. We have rock stars from the sixties and seventies so adultery is present also.

Within this novel, we meet Pete and Charlotte Crowne who are only mentioned in the sequel as being Kat’s parents. They are both dead before 1980 when the novel begins with Kat at thirteen.

Pete is your typical bad boy and Charlotte a small town girl. Hence the title. Pete’s in a band and he is a drummer and Charlotte is a good old church girl. They fall in love and Charlotte marries Pete and moves with him and becomes a rock star’s wife. Pretty typical right? Wrong.

Charlotte’s a tough Mississippi girl who finds herself in the big Apple. She makes friends and enemies as she observes her husband and his band mates get high. Charlotte does not condone drug use but she finds a friend eventually although brief.

We know from the sequel that Pete commits suicide but what gets him to this point? We also know that Charlotte kills herself right before the events of She’s Only Seventeen.  Five years after Pete so many unanswered questions.

The Women of “The King’s Secret Daughter”

*Spoilers*

Obviously 

Read here —–> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XYVL6T5

 

Women’s roles have changed greatly since the time of Anna and the American Revolution. No longer in the United States nor Great Britain is a woman ruled by her husband. Here we explore the prominent women featured within The King’s Secret Daughter

 

tumblr_nr5oglAtr31tkodheo9_250.gif

Our first and foremost character is of course Anna. She’s a rebel at heart who, although tries to remain faithful at first to king and country, follows her heart. She takes her life into her own hands, something quite rare in that time period. Her marriage to John Seymour marks the first time she is given away against her will and married off. She finds some happiness with Thomas Miller briefly. Thomas is a choice for her. She chooses freely to love him and in that action, she discovers the joys of relationships and intimacy without the restraints of marriage. When Thomas dies she is deeply saddened and cannot stomach John. Because of this, she saves the Miller Family and consummates her passion with Nathan. Her relationship with Nathan differs from everyone else in the fact that she loves him but is torn between her duty and heart.

When Anna leaves Nathan and returns to England she experiences the same trappings she did before. This time she is married to Jack Smith. Their relationship is stormy and passionate and Anna finds herself content with it for a while. She fears to return to England for the feeling of entrapment to come back.

Anna, however, takes her life into her own hands and returns to Nathan in South Carolina. Her return marks the end of her struggle between king and country. She chooses to live as Nathan Miller’s wife on Miller plantation where her role has differed greatly. Nathan never tries to suppress her and allows her to be herself.

This is important for Anna because her two arranged marriages ended terribly and she felt surprised.

tumblr_n9jf44q9SN1tiqvl8o1_250

Next, we have the strong figure of Jane Miller. Jane is the mother of Nathan, Thomas, and Charlotte. She serves also as a mother figure to Anna in the novel for Anna has never had a positive one before.

Jane advises Anna many times and is also the first to forgive her upon the discovery that Anna is the daughter of the English king. She welcomes Anna both times as a prospective daughter in law with first Thomas and finally Nathan. She does not blame Anna for Thomas death although Anna blames herself, something which will plague her the rest of her life.

tumblr_ofpu8haH6M1rob81ao6_250.gif

Bea is Anna’s lady-in-waiting the first part of the novel. She is bold and brazen. Bea speaks her mind and Anna loves her for it. Bea is also a sort of mother/older sister figure to Anna. She explains to Anna about the secrets of the bedroom to which Anna is shocked that Bea knows these things as an unmarried woman. Bea has had many love affairs but at the time of the novel is unmarried. It is unknown whether she takes a husband once separated from Anna or not.

The loss of Bea affects Anna greatly as she has lost her best friend and confident.

 

 

tumblr_nuvv38j5pn1s0uiqbo1_500

Finally, we have Charlotte Miller. Charlotte is the sister of Nathan and Thomas and the daughter of James and Jane Miller. She is quiet the first half of the book but when Anna meets her again in part three we see a different older Charlotte who is about to be married. Charlotte’s upcoming wedding is the main event of part three and we see the events leading up to it as her husband to be is introduced.

Charlotte serves as a Bea like confident to Anna and the two become fast friends. It is Charlotte who urges Anna to be with Nathan again. Anna does so at charlottes reception when Charlotte tells Nathan to go after Anna which results in Anna and Nathan reuniting and agreeing to marry.
tumblr_oasphyuaFS1si0ebuo1_500.gif

Honorable mentions include Queen Charlotte, the wife of George III and Hannah Lightfoot, his supposed mistress. Queen Charlotte does not favor Anna and is constantly pregnant. She eventually births fifteen children to her husband. Two who will become king.

Hannah is the supposed mistress of George III and mother of Anna. She is only spoken of and has no voice in the novel. Anna does not speak of her and acts as if she hardly exists.

Each woman of The King’s Secret Daughter carries a unique view towards women of the day. Some are powerless while others hold titles.   Each holds their strength differently and has a story to tell.

The Men of “The King’s Secret Daughter”

*Spoilers*

Obviously 

Read here —–> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XYVL6T5

00001

Within my novel, The King’s Secret Daughter, Anna is married three times to all very different men. She is also in relationships with two others which contrast greatly towards her marital partners.

vbv.gif

The first, Colonel John Seymour, is an officer in the British Army. Not much is offered on him for a back story other than he’s never been married. (John’s backstory contains his move from England to South Carolina where he meets a woman who he falls in love with but cannot marry. This is the main reason why he is so reserved towards Anna and does not want to marry her. This previous relationship is not mentioned in the book and may be subject to a spin-off prequel eventually so stay tuned) John married Anna at the insistence of George III. He does not want to marry her and keeps his distance. When she is lost, he does not inform the king of her status. Fortunately, Anna is found but at a cost. John kills Thomas Miller, marking the end of any peace which could ever become of John and Anna’s relationship. They both put on a show for Cornwallis sake yet feelings never develop between the two and when John dies in battle, Anna is “relieved”.

John is described as ruthless in battle and he shows little emotion towards Anna or anyone for that matter. He gains some earth towards Anna but it is quickly extinguished. His murder of Thomas Miller is one example of his hardness.

tumblr_nlk957yYI21up6udho1_400
Thomas Miller never married Anna, but they become engaged and physically intimate without the knowledge that John Seymour is still alive. Thomas and Anna have an instant attraction although his brother Nathan tried to come between them. Thomas and Anna both lose their virginity to each other and are engaged before his ultimate death. Thomas is the softest of Anna’s relationships. He is a simple man with small wishes. He is heir to the Miller Plantation and was raised in preparation for the task. When he does, his brother Nathan becomes the heir. Thomas’s death is needed for the revelation which takes place within Anna’s heart and how she makes her choices to side with the colonists rather than her own father.

Captain Jack Smith serves as Anna’s second husband. Anna does not want to marry him but because of the events of the American Revolution and John Seymour, she obeys. He proves to be extremely different than John and is rough with her on their wedding night before ignoring her on board the Century. She ends up becoming friends with Will Wilson and Joe Pierce. Her relationship with joe sparks Jack to nearly assault her. He saves her life when she goes overboard and after that, the two share awkward encounters. Anna and Jack soon begin to interact on a different level and eventually develop a sexual relationship. He falls in love with Anna but after discovering that she has spoken to Joe Pierce, he becomes angry. Jack kills Joe in battle which results on Anna’s betrayal of the crew. Jack is insinuated to be killed at the end of the novel.

Jack’s character is quite complex. He has to put on a certain apprehended for the crew yet his true self comes out to Anna. We learn more of his backstory than we do with John. Jack had been married to a woman named Sophie who had died in childbirth. He also has been part of the British Royal Navy for many years. His scar is from a pirate who he stood up to. He eventually sought revenge on said pirate and killed him. Jack is also described as almost childish in many scenes. His friendship with Arthur Greene goes far back and Arthur is one of the only he trusts with his wife alone. Anna’s remorse for jacks death shows she did truly care for him, but her determination to get back to South Carolina after Joe’s death trumps all.

gallion-ships-animated-gif.gif

Joe Pierce is the carpenter on the century. He is a young man who Anna has little interest in the beginning. After the death of his best friend, Will, who was interested in Anna, the pair finds comfort within each other. They begin a relationship behind Jack’s back and eventually Are found out. Joe is whipped and not allowed to speak to Anna. It hurts him when he finds out Anna and Jack have reconciled. Anna speaks to him on a whim which angers Jack and firing the last battle he is killed by Jack.

Joe is naive with women and falls easily under Anna’s spell. He is willing to risk all just to speak with her and when he does, it costs him more than he expects.

dg.gif

Nathan Miller is Anna’s constant through the novel. She does not know it at first but he is her soulmate. Anna initially refuses Nathan but falls under his spell when he kisses her against her will. After Thomas dies, Anna meets with Nathan and they make love. Their feelings for each other are clear, yet Anna ends leaving for England. Nathan is never far from her mind and when she is finally given the choice, she returns to him. Nathan has moved on to Anna’s disappointment but they quickly reunite and their passion is once again restored. Anna married Nathan at the end of the novel.

Nathan is moody most of the first half of the novel. He is opposite his brother and is described as lazy and dreamy. He enjoys riding horses but has trouble focusing on tasks on the plantation. Eventually, after his brother’s death, he is heir to the plantation and begins to take his responsibilities seriously.

tumblr_inline_o54g64XAnI1rifr4k_500
Arthur Greene is Anna’s friend and sometimes confident aboard the century. She is at first wary of him because he is Jacks best friend but he soon becomes her good friend in his own right. Their relationship is marked by Arthur urging her relationship with Jack and Anna revealing her secrets to Arthur. The climax of their relationship comes when Arthur confesses what he saw during battle to Anna. He does not realize that this will cause Anna to take action against the crew.

nhj.gif
Will Wilson and Anna are never intimate. He becomes her close friend and although his mixed feelings towards her are clouded when he tries to kiss her, their friendship prevails. His death saddens her greatly and she mourns the loss of her only true friend on board at the time solemnly until she unwisely chooses to socialize with the crew once more.

tumblr_n9a6hg70Ur1s7qd3fo2_r1_500

Other honorable mentions include George III and George IV. Their actions towards Anna are always not in her best interest. She loves her father and half brother but is shunned because of her actions. Her brother is torn between his duty and his sister but chooses his duty which disappoints Anna greatly.

tumblr_o2rtxutZeb1t147ouo1_500.gif

Other members of the Century also deserve a mention. Robert Steele and Henry Willis serve as allies to Anna on more than one occasion. She conversates with them and Robert even defends her on many occasions.

sailboat-yacht-sailing-animated-gif-24.gif

James Miller is also a key man in the novel. As the father of Nathan and Thomas, he is the sole figure who pushes Nathan to Anna. He regrets this after because he knows Anna must leave but he values his son’s happiness. James is the one who saves Anna and for that, she is eternally grateful. He is disappointed to learn she is the king’s daughter but none the fewer accepts her still as she has saved his family and become like a daughter to him.

t0eST5
Anna’s world was very much a man’s world yet women also played a key role. Tomorrow I shall discuss the women of The King’s Secret Daughter and how important their roles were within the novel.

tumblr_nr5oglAtr31tkodheo4_250

Sex Through The Centuries. 

Sex.

Teens giggle while children look around in confusion as adults blush. How did such a natural act become so taboo? As a child, everything I learned about sex was from the school bus, my friends, or experimentation. My family never spoke of it. This proves true for many people, but why have we become so conservative towards the act of reproduction?

Shh.gif

To investigate this, we must go back to the beginning. Starting with the earliest humans, sex was purely animalistic. Our instincts simply kicked in and we mated. Simply. No shame.

As we came into the time of Egypt and Rome we still see sex as something which fills everyday life without shame. Pompeii was full of it. Murals and other scenes of pornography filled the city. In Egypt equally, scenes filled tombs and temples alike. The Egyptians were certainly not shy about sex and in fact, pharohs kept harems of women,  including their mothers, sisters, and daughters within them. (Disclaimer, totally not supporting incest, just using as an example ) Cleopatra was notoriously open with her sexuality first with Caesar then Antony. She married two of her brothers but it is unknown whether she had relations with them. Back to Rome… the emperors were notorious for their sexual escapades. They were open with them and men and women alike held lovers of all stations.

tumblr_o8tscktF1E1qfrhhpo1_500.gif

This also brings me to the subject of homosexuality and how it is also considered taboo in today’s society. We have lightened up a bit on it but it is not fully accepted as it was during the days of the Romans or Egyptians. Personally, I think it should be!

When-About-Some-Bodice-Ripping.gif

Moving forward, we get to England and it’s reign as master of the world. England shunned sex and kept it hush hush. Although it was common for men to have mistresses, women lost their power and if accused of adultery could be out to death. We see Henry VIII who put Anne Boleyn to death for rumors and Catherine Howard for the same crime with solid evidence.

Long before Henry, came Edward II who had big shoes to fill. He stands between his father and son, two great king’s of England, yet Edward was a weakling. He was easily overpowered by his scorned queen, Isabella. Edward was a homosexual and although fathered four children with his wife, eventually took another male lover, causing her to begin an affair with Roger Mortimer and cause and uprising. Eventually, Edward was killed and Mortimer was defeated and killed. Isabella was imprisoned by her son, Edward III for the remainder of her life.

Onto Mughal India where sex was… complicated….

tumblr_n2nrezrje01s3ulybo4_250.gif

Kama Sutra… the book of love. A common book for those who studied the art or even married couples. Much was expected from a woman in the royal bedchamber and if you could catch the emperor then you would rise. Emperor Jahangir fell in love with Nur Jahan and made her the most powerful woman in India. Jahangir’s son would have to deal with her well into his reign but like his father also fell deeply for a woman. Shan Jahan fell in love with Mumtaz Mahal who was of relation to Nur Jahan. He was unable to marry her at first and took another wife but soon had his way. He quickly shunned his other wives after giving them a child each and focused all his attention on Mumtaz. Detailed court documents of their sexual passion are available and well exposed. It resulted in her giving birth to 14 children and unfortunately for Mumtaz, she died birthing their fourteenth. The Taj Mahal symbolizes their love where they have both been interred for eternity.

Don’t even get me started on China…

tumblr_nge3v3ShIg1qigjl0o1_500.gif

As one of the largest empires, Chinese rulers would have concubines… a ton of them. Girls were selected from noble families because hey, only the best for the Emporer. These girls would sit in the halls of women and wait to be chosen. many would grow old and never get a night with their king. Once the emperor died, the women would have their heads shaved and be set to a nunnery equivalent. Some concubines like Ci-Xi and Wu Zhao rose up to become empress because they birthed the next emperor.

tumblr_og91gmyJIV1rjl6wko4_500.gif

England after the restoration exploded with sex. Charles II had many acknowledged mistresses and bastards. Although he had no legitimate children, he did not shun his wife Catherine. The king was described as lusty and highly sexual. Also during this time, many views of the woman changed. Women took lovers and were allowed on the stage, baring their legs as actresses. Nell Gwynn never married, yet she had lovers including Charles. Many families threw their daughters to the king with hopes of advancement and many would be educated on just how to please the king within the bedchamber.

tumblr_og91gmyJIV1rjl6wko3_500.gif

Moving forward to George III. It was said he had a mistress, Hannah Lightfoot and then fell in love with Sarah Lennox but once George Married Charlotte, we see a more conservative king. After his marriage, he proves to be a very devoted husband and father. His son, on the other hand, George IV disposed his wife and took many mistresses, even dubbing one his true wife. During this period, women were expected to be virgins and not take lovers.

tumblr_og91gmyJIV1rjl6wko2_500

Victorian England explored the reign of courtesans and free love such as in France. Victoria’s son Edward was a great lover of women and did not shy around it.

tumblr_og91gmyJIV1rjl6wko1_500

After Edward, we get more into the 20th century where marriage stayed between a man and woman and sex began to be hushed.

tumblr_o9phwuCcAC1rocj0eo1_400

When the 60s and 70s came the idea of free love came back and for a brief period, some people brought sex back into the spotlight. In the 80s we get pornography wisely distributed. Music videos with scantly clothed women. As we approach our century we see porn taking over everywhere. It’s highly distributed and has taken the place of many stable relationships. I was in a relationship with a porn addict once and trust me when I say this is one thing where it can ruin relationships.

Continuing on. Sex will probably never be as open and free as it was once yet we continue to live on. Babies are being constructed within Petrie dishes while parents pick out eye color rather than just do the act itself and get what you’re given. Society and technology have definitely changed the way we view sex and our sexuality.

When-Jack-Gives-Subtle-Little-Smirk.gif

I have gotten mixed reviews about the sex within The King’s Secret Daughter. Anna sleeps with a man before marriage and develops a relationship. This could be normal for the time period but to know the whole story you’d have to read the book. She is at one point shunned by her second husband and finds comfort with another man and the man is punished.

980x.jpg

Within She’s Only Seventeen, we explore human sexuality at its finest. Kat loses her virginity at the tender age of fifteen and after that, she uses sex as a way to express herself and on some occasions, show or mask deep emotions. Kat commits adultery on more than one occasion but since the story takes places from 1980-2001, it is fealty with differently.

In conclusion, sexuality is suppressed in many ways in this society. I have vowed that my daughter will not be uneducated and I trust myself to remain calm when she comes to me with questions. I do not want her to see it as something to be ashamed of. I most certainly am not and I suppose my openness is one of the reasons for my happy marriage.

tumblr_mvnbige8OP1sfdkkto1_500

This is definitely one of those subjects I could go on forever about so I will stop here. As always, I am welcome to discussions.

Royal Geneology

My interest in genealogy has ranged from everything to the Tudor/Stuart succession to the Mughal Empire of India to the Hapsburg and Egyptian lineages. I have a photographic memory. Apparently, it’s a rare thing but it’s helped a lot. Put a genealogy table of the Rammaside Dynasty in front of me and guaranteed I can copy 90% or more from memory.

fdg

My interest began in fifth grade when I discovered Henry Viii and instantly fell in love with history. I began researching him and his six wives. This eventually led to discovering his parents and their roles in the War of the Roses as well as his descendants which led into the Stuart dynasty.

last_king_slide_1.jpg

I remember when Charles II the Power and The Passion   Aired. As the last true king to rule without a parliament, I found Charles intriguing. Although he died without heirs, through his many mistresses, Prince William will bear his blood as the first monarch in history to do so. Among his illegitimate children was James the Duke of Monmouth. He was Charles’ eldest son and rumors surrounded that he married his mother, Lucy Walter. James was the subject of my senior thesis and I have done extensive research on his behalf.

 

tumblr_nlzeriQ1k41u14xjuo1_500.gif

Next, I devoured the great Mughal Empire of India. Key figures included Shan Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal and his third and favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal whom he had fourteen children with. After the death of his wife, Shan Jahan flew into depression and became obsessed with building his late wife’s mausoleum leaving his four sons to fight over the throne. The eldest, Dara, was highly supported and the unspoken heir. Next came Shuja who fled to Bengel to seek help from the Shah. Aurangzeb, the third son, was very devout in religion and took up arms against Dara with his younger brother Murad at his side. Dara was disposed of and Aurangzeb next turned on Murad who was murdered. Shuja fled but was eventually executed. With no one standing in his way, Aurangzeb became undoubtedly ruler of India and the war of succession was over. To seal his rule, he imprisoned his father in a tower with one window which overlooked the still under construction Taj Mahal. His eldest daughter Jahanara became his sole caretaker for the remainder of his life.

 

giphy.gif

Going to the next area of history I devoured is Egypt. I have long dreamt of becoming an Egyptologist but unfortunately, now this is an impossible dream. I still hungrily take in facts about mummies and ancient Egypt daily and still can’t get enough. My favorite period though the span of two dynasties. I love anything with Ramses II. And then also deeply obsess over Tut and Nefertiti. I’ve had phases where Cleopatra and the Ptolemy’s had my calling yet Rome seems as a gray area for me still although it is enjoyable to research. Within Egypt, incest in marriage was common as isis and Osiris had done. On this topic, we will move to our next section, the Spanish royal houses.

Louis-and-Elizabeth's-Wedding.gif

The Hapsburg house married so close that their last heir, Charles, was so deeply deformed that exorcisms were performed on his person. The Hapsburg chin, a trait which afflicted both men and women of the house, was so pronounced on Charles that he constantly drooled and could not chew food. The comparison between equity, Tut, and Charles can be drawn here as they both were a product of incest and could not produce healthy heirs, ending their dynasties because of those affections.

 

tumblr_opbz9q64Uf1tf6696o1_500.gif

The King’s Secret Daughter features a genealogy table which notes George III. Following upon this line, the sequel has broken away for a pure fictional genealogy table featuring Anna and Nathan’s heirs in South Carolina. For those interested, the line of George III that goes on with his legitimate children is quite intriguing. His eldest son and heir, George IV, had one daughter but she died in 1817 and left him without. The throne went next to his brother William who had ten children by his mistress Dorothy but none legitimate. William married for sake of the crown, shunning his illegitimate bunch, but no heirs were produced. Next came Victoria. Daughter of William and George’s other brother. She became known as the great queen Victoria and reigned into the twentieth century. Her heirs, though tainted with the blood disease hemophilia, still thrive throughout Europe. Scientist’s have tried to find out where the disease came from and many conclude that Victoria may not have been her father’s true daughter but the daughter of another man. If this is true then the line of George III did indeed end with her uncle William.

tumblr_ml6fthpPge1qlv54lo1_250.gif

In conclusion, there is much more I could write. In fact, I could go on for pages just dissecting each royal line and their troubles. I will save a headache. I have finalized the next gen genealogy tables for The King’s Secret Daughter sequels and will present it soon.

Is There Really a Right Age to Have Children?

This question has been asked for centuries, but recently it has come more to my attention because people have made it personal.

I had my daughter in my mid-twenties. According to many millennials, this is considered young. Yet what gets me is the half of women I graduated high school with that had a wave of babies once they graduated.

I put myself through college and married before I got pregnant and gave birth and yet I receive criticism.  This leads me to question many things.

1. The average age of childbirth has gone up drastically in the age of Millenials when the average age only twenty years ago was the early twenties. This could be due to longer lifespans and medical improvements. Also, millennials are more career focused compared to women who were considered homemakers in the baby boomers and generation x.

2. Priorities. Many women find it unnecessary to have children and chose to either live a life without or focus on careers. Millenials are the social generation and are frequent on social media and bar life.

3. Within history, it was not uncommon for a woman as young as twelve to become a mother. Pretty much once you got your first menstrual cycle you considered a woman and ripe for marriage. Take Margaret Tudor for example, the mother of Henry Vii and grandmother of the notorious Henry Vii. She married gave birth at barely twelve and it almost killed her. Things have since changed in this sense for the better yet we still have underage girls getting pregnant.

The debate of what age is the right one to have children is considered silly in my opinion.

Whenever one chooses, whether planned or unplanned, is right for you. Don’t let anyone judge or tell you differently.

On another note, within my novels, this subject comes up.

In She’s Only Seventeen, Kat Crowne gives birth at the tender age of twenty in 1986.

Within The Kings Secret Daughter Anna does not have children but in the sequel due to be released in November….

SPOILER ALERT***

Anna gives birth to her first child at the age of twenty-six in 1787. This was considered quite old during this time period for childbearing. While Anna births older, her sister in law Charlotte does at the age of twenty-two. An age which was more acceptable. Charlotte’s mother, Jane, births her eldest son Thomas at barely sixteen. Again a normal age for the time period. We also see teen births through Charlotte and Anna’s descendants.

In conclusion, I truly believe that there is not a right or wrong answer to the question. The criticism that one receives will always happen no matter what. It is the generation in which we live in.whether you have a child at sixteen of fifty it does not matter. if you have one child or twelve, you are still a mother. Age not number does not change this fact. Opinions are everywhere.

Just look at Social Media.

One post can spark thousands of opinions.

Blonde Moment for a Brunette

Made a whoopsie!

So I accidentally uploaded the wrong version of my book to Amazon and before I could change it, someone bought it!

tumblr_mxls2fu7qj1s2jic2o1_400.gif

UGH!

Well, of course, that person left a review stating that there were errors.

Everything has since been fixed and the correct, edited, file has been uploaded. I’ve offered to give the customer the corrected copy for free but no response. I very much hope this mistake and review do not cost others to read the book because I have luckily gotten overwhelming praise for the novel from others and am glad that they think the book is good and worth reading.

I do hope others give it a chance also despite the review.
