Persistence of Memory

I’m really excited that my fourth novel, Persistence of Memory, will be published by Fable Press later this year.

The novel’s about Charlie Lowe, a young woman who lives in an English seaside village. She’s obsessed with researching her ancestor, Louis Augustus Duran, whose origins are a complete mystery. When a rogue computer virus accidentally sends her back to 1825, Charlie discovers she must persuade a very reluctant Sarah Foster to marry Duran, or two centuries of descendants – including herself – will never be.

Unhappily, Louis Duran turns out to be a despicable French count who spends his days attempting to invent the first flushing toilet in Hampshire, when he’s not busy impregnating – and dismissing – a succession of unfortunate housemaids.

As Charlie struggles to influence the impossible, she falls head over heels in love with Duran’s groom, Mr. Deeley. But the course of true love doesn’t run smoothly, especially when Mr. Deeley is falsely accused of setting fire to the local inn – a hanging offence – and Charlie contracts an illness which is curable in her own time, but fatal in 1825.

I plan on making Persistence of Memory the first of a series of novels featuring Charlie Lowe and Mr. Deeley.

Look for publication later this year in ebook and trade paperback formats.
