My New Biographical Romance FOR THE LOVE OF HAWTHORNE--A Psychological Thriller With a Touch of Paranormal


One of history's greatest love stories was that of Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne. They called themselves "Adam and Eve" and "loved surpassingly" as Sophia recorded in her journal. When her sister Lizzie wanted her to come down and meet him, she wasn't a bit interested. Here's a snippet from that night: 53 Charter Street, Salem, Massachusetts, 1837 Monday eve under a blur of stars, warm for mid-November  “O, Sophie!” My sister pounded on my bedroom door. My head throbbed with every strike of her fist. “Pull on a frock and come downstairs! Now!” I squeezed my eyes shut. “Please, Lizzie, I have one of my headaches. Leave me be.” Heedless of my request or of the fierce pain tearing my brain, sh...

From the book: Blood Mines by Lynelle Clark... Excerpt 4


Wiping the sweat away from her brow, Tanya peered straight into the scorching heat. Her face was covered by the wide-brimmed hat, her eyes protected by dark sunglasses ─ the heavy duty kind that hardly allows any light to pass through. It was early November with no sign of rain in the sky. The previous day they had a few drops which splattered onto the dust-covered earth, but it had made no significant difference to the parched earth. They needed a downpour soaking the earth, and soon. Death was around her in various forms, and it didn’t discriminate between the strong and the weak. It was as if the Grim Reaper had a license to kill and touched everything with robustness. Fires were a consta...

Excerpt 3 from Blood Mines by Lynelle Clark

#3 Excerpt Blood Mines “Here, let her drink this,” Granddad said, also close by. His gruff voice unmistakably from years of chain-smoking cigarettes. “Dad, that’s brandy. I cannot give a ten-year-old brandy.” Mom uttered, aggravated by Granddad’s suggestion. “Oh, hogwash, nothing can happen to her, she needs to get warm immediately, and brandy is the best source of heat right now.” With that, a glass was held in front of Tanya’s shivering lips and tepid liquid ran down her t hroat. She coughed from the sudden burn but gulped it down. Not that she knew what brandy was but at that moment it warmed her body, which was all she cared about, soothing the burning cough at the same time. She shook u...

The second Excerpt from Blood Mines by Lynelle Clark

#2 Excerpt from Blood Mines Then, unexpectedly, vice-like arms clamped around her body and her head broke through the surface of the water so quickly that it shocked her system like a jolt of electricity directly to her heart. She sputtered and coughed all at once before she opened her eyes in slits. As if in a haze, she saw a most welcome face.  Uncle Jack looked at her with his big, scary eyes, his face pale as he gazed at her. Drenched himself, he held her in his arms and  she wrapped her arms around his thick neck, crying hysterically while he patted her back, all the while trying to calm her down. It felt like she was on fire. Everything burnt. She coughed a few times, trying to focus o...

BOOTLEG BROADWAY, a Story of Debauchery and Romance. Prohibition, booze, music, sex, murder… New York…what a time to be alive!


The birth of BOOTLEG BROADWAY: After FROM HERE TO 14THSTREET set in 1894, I needed to set this a generation later, which happened to be the 1930s—with Prohibition and the Great Depression as the backdrop. This is the first book I ever wrote where I created the characters first, with nothing to do yet. The plot developed the way it did because of who they are. My goal was to get the protagonist Billy McGlory into one mess after another. This era couldn’t have been more suited to Billy’s adventures, a few of which he barely escaped with his life. About BOOTLEG BROADWAY: In this sequel to FROM HERE TO 14 TH STREET, Vita and Tom McGlory and their three children are struggling to make ends meet. ...
