Each believing the other to be a wealthy socialite, maidservant Kathleen O'Leary and con man Dylan Kennedy become completely smitten with each other at a social gathering on the eve of the Great Chicago Fire. Caught up in the danger of the fire and the intensity of their feelings, they get married. But when the truth about their social standing is discovered, everything changes. Now they must decide which is more important -- marrying for love, or money?
I like to believe I am the person my dogs think I am.
I phone my parents every day, as they are elderly and adorable, and they read me stories every day of my freakishly normal childhood. I was a writer before I learned to read, by creating scribbles on paper and dictating the stories to my saintly mother. You can see examples here: https://plus.google.com/u/1/photos/104585203815605467940/albums/5587379107269629729?banner=pwa&partnerid=pwrd1.
Untold eons later, I still read and write everyday and I've gotten very good at it. I live in a ridiculously gorgeous place in the world--an island in Puget Sound, Washington where we have a lot of the same flowers you grow in the UK. But bigger slugs. Much bigger slugs.
I have lots more to tell you, so please join me on Facebook and check out pictures of my dogs and tell me what's on your mind. https://www.facebook.com/susanwiggs
