Pleased as punch to show you the cover of my upcoming novel with Tyndale House Publishers, the follow-up to Grace’s Pictures. The designer perfectly captured Annie Gallagher and her love for stories. Cannot wait to share this with readers. Have to though. It releases next summer. However, I am working on some additional material related to this series and hope to have some of it available early in the new year for my newsletter subscribers.

The year is 1901, the literary sensation The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is taking New York City by storm, and everyone wonders where the next great book will come from. But to Annie Gallagher, stories are more than entertainment—they’re a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death, Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at Hawkins House.
But when a fellow boarder with something to hide is accused of misconduct and authorities threaten to shut down the boardinghouse, Annie fears she may lose her new friends, her housekeeping job . . . and her means of funding her dream: a memorial library to honor her father. Furthermore, the friendly postman shows a little too much interest in Annie—and in her father’s unpublished stories. In fact, he suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.
