Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead. She has vowed to ignore her Voodoo-stamped heritage and the psychic gift passed down through her Louisiana family. The world of the living is where she wants to belong. 

But her resolution shatters when the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class at Oxford—begin to haunt her. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War.

College becomes more complicated when Madison falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, she realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…

My Writer’s Cave
By Marion Croslydon 

It’s small and stuffy and dark… and I love it that way. Not messy per se, just not spacious. I also write with the shutters closed and a tiny candle light (those Yankee candles with delicious flavors, such as Vanilla Cupcake). Very unhealthy, but I need to retreat into my writing cave. I also have my writing playlist in the background, mostly Country and English Pop Rock. 

I normally start my day with a pint of coffee after dropping my daughter at childcare. But now that I’m pregnant, coffee is pretty much off limits. I mean I can have a cup but not the pint… and this has seriously affected my productivity. 

Thank you for letting us have a peek inside your writer's cave Marion! And who doesn't love those yummy Yankee candles?! They need to be a staple in everybody's little cave! Congratulations on the wonderful news about your pregnancy, although I don't think I could survive on such a tiny amount of caffeine!

In addition to being an author, I work as an entrepreneur, wife and mother-of-one but spend a good deal of time with books, DVDs and listening to my mp3 player; all for the sake of inspiration, of course.

My debut series, The Oxford Trilogy, has been a blast to write because I can indulge in my favorite types of music: Country and English rock.

My main goal as a writer is to make readers dream bigger and cause their hearts to beat a little faster. Since my writing is all about sharing dreams and stories, I love connecting with fellow readers and authors.
