Meet the Author
Her passion lies in crafting stories from forgotten pieces of history and setting them in locations just outside the expected. She focuses on unusual themes and locations, all in the backdrop of the intrigue of the 19th century. Jennifer has as much of a passion for the history of the Habsburg Empire and the allure Austrian culture, as she does for the quiet rolling hills of New England. She only has one rule with her historicals: Expect the unexpected.
It was her love of research and classic literature that brought her to expanding Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera.
Writing from a tiny loft office, Jennifer admits to being country mouse with city mouse tastes and is constantly fighting to keep the little critters in line. She can't pronounce pistachio, hates lollipops with gooey centers, and dearly loves to laugh. If asked for her motto in life, she points to the following poem upon her office wall:
Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It's too high! COME TO THE EDGE! And they came, and he pushed, and they flew. ~ Christopher Logue

There are many "sequels" to The Phantom of the Opera, but the vasr majority of them are based upon or inspired by the 2004 movie. If, like me, you are looking for something more Lerouxian in nature, then this is the book for you. Here we have Erik in all his mad genius glory. An enjoyable read!
It was well writen but defective on my nook. It read like a normal book would but the page numbers skipped around. ( ex. 87 to 91 to 93). It is hard because I am a student who has to keep a reading log. But if page numbers are not a concern for the reader, this is a fabulous book.
