My newest novel — A PRINCIPLE OF LIGHT — released October 27, 2020. I am so pleased and excited to offer it to you.

Told in two voices, this is the sweeping tale of two women forging a friendship after witnessing a bombing in Istanbul. Convinced their knowledge endangers them, they go on the run, uncovering secrets and making decisions that will alter their lives forever.
This book is dedicated to my dearest friend Nilesen Gokay, who gave permission to use her name for the main character and who shared her stories about her beloved Turkey. In her honor, a portion of the proceeds will go to the ALS Association to fund research on this dread disease.
Please join me in welcoming this new book…available in eBook and paperback.
