Meet the Author

After growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area and marrying my high school sweetheart, we became what Alvin Toffler called "corporate gypsies." We've lived in a number of states and countries, including Italy, and have visited a lot of places, some of which show up in my stories. I'm a retired high school science teacher with degrees in English and psychology. (Those two and $4 will get you a good cup of coffee!) I've always loved history, though, as you might guess from the last chapter of my books. That's what happens when you mix a teacher with a self-professed history geek. We are once again back in the Bay Area with our long, tall Pole of a dog.

    I do not understand all of the 4 & 5 star ratings...this was so bad I couldn't get through even half of the book! The two main characters are antagonistic with each other for no discernible reason. The heroine is a child and acts like it...no way anyone that idiotic could be a spy. The hero is pig-headed, which usually is a good thing but here it isn't. He's supposed to be this intelligent, capable spy and yet he insists its his way or the highway even when he is clueless about the situation...even when it is obvious that the heroine is the expert. And, the conversations! My 6 year-old niece comes up with better conversations with her dolls! Don't waste your time.

    Free....good

    For a free book, its hard to complain about 600 plus pages of story. Don't go in to this expecting perfection because it could certainly use some editing. However, it is a descent plot with historical flair. Read this now before it gets a proffessional edit and you have to pay $10.00 for it... its worth it.

    Great read

    Enjoyed Rafe and Chiara's story. Full of action and growing love. Just a few spelling errors in this 667 page book. Great historical read that keeps you so involved you can't put it down.

    The author has a good story but hasn't done her research or checked her spelling and punctuation. She repeatedly uses "discrete" when she means "discreet" and "lead" when she means "led." A dictionary is the most valuable resource a writer can have. Also, Queen
    Victoria was the first monarch to use Buckingham Palace as a residence. Keep writing, ma'am, but in the future, do some research, use your dictionary, and hire a competent proofreader. The characters in "An Unsuitable Occupation" are great and the plot is interesting and the action is welcome, but these mistakes interrupt the flow of the story for the reader.

    Could have been better

    The text seem unnecessarily long; I found myself skipping sections. The author rushes or glosses over the romantic scenes and draws out the spy elements. About 667 pages.

    Not worth reading

    I don't rate books often, but when the plot is full of holes, shallow, and not well developed with very annoying characters, I felt like I need to save people time and money. Don't waste time on this book.
    As for all the 4 and 5 star ratings, my guess is that a majority of them came from either the author or the author's family and friends.
