Esprit De Corps

“In an America on the brink of civil war, a nervous, young Northern actress, about to make her stage debut, discovers more than professional support in the eyes of a Southern actor.”

Author’s note: Although originally written as a stand-alone short story, “Esprit De Corps” eventually became, with some minor alterations, a chapter in my novel One Bitter And Deadly Harvest, the first novel in the seven-book series The Culpeper Chronicles, available November 2001 from Pulsar Books.

Joie De Vivre

“The name of the plantation bore an ironic twist—Joie De Vivre; Joy of Living.”
