Glyphs: The Scribe
$3.17 on Amazon
Historical Fiction

There has been no written history of the Wira and Inca gods. Until now.

Wiraqucha, the creator god, has appointed others to watch over his creations, but after 100 years, the custodians are leaving the empire. The sun god succumbs to the ravages of his human form, and his son, Pascac, leads villagers to Sacsayhuamán to start anew. As they strive to prosper in their new home, Supay, the god of death, and other gods rage against them--seemingly intent upon wiping out the entire civilization and those who rule them. The scribe uses the ancient art of glyph drawing to record the history and create books so descendants will know the story of how they came to be.

NEW RELEASE: Willows: The Creole
Historical Fiction | Women's Fiction | Black History 
99 Cents on Amazon for a limited time

The Arceneauxs have a long history of falling victim to circumstance, but heir to the family home, one woman is determined the legacy will end with her. Embroiled in the fleecing of New York’s bridge funds, she is offered a new life in New Orleans, but what she finds is an abandoned house, a fractured family, and an oppressed people. Determined, she confronts the challenges head on, but soon realizes change is not something needed only for her, but for many.

In the decades before the Civil War, Louisiana was the most advanced in the rights of people of color—Africans and Indians—and women, including the right to vote. Marriage between races was legal, and mulatto, quarteronne, and octoroon children were recognized by their white fathers and often became business and landowners through gifts or the wills of patriarchs. 

The Civil War brought change—any black lineage became cause for discrimination—and many blacks were relegated to occupations not unlike those of their ancestors. The women’s rights movement lost momentum as well, and it was only through the sheer will of women such as Stanton and Anthony, that organizations were formed and the voices of women would come to be heard. 

Willows Plantation, still worked by the descendants of the slaves who built it, becomes the anchor to affect change and in a historical fiction story spanning five generations, author Cyndie Shaffstall, takes you on a journey through abolition and suffrage. A Voodoo priestess, a French artist, the first woman presidential candidate, and the world’s fair shed light on issues and provide opportunities for a better life for the entire family.

Note: The Delegate series contains independent stories, not a continuation of earlier books.
