Her main body of work is Lands of the Morning™, a series of kaleidoscopic, exotic, international, ethnically diverse novels, with excellent potential for a TV-series. The pervading theme in the Lands of the Morning™ Series is love, as well as social justice, controversial, all-consuming, and ultimately, redeeming. The trials, tribulations and triumphs of three respective families are traced from their roots in the mists of pre-history. They are the Berks, Trojans, the Alkibiades', Achaeans, and the Kayhans, Turks. Skeins of exotic people, places and customs rooted in Turkey and branching out to Ireland, Israel, United States of America, Italy, Greece, and Saudi Arabia, interlace the subplots with the fast-growing scheme of events, climaxing in an unexpected denouement.
The fruit of a lifetime of research and writing, this series is fiction based upon authentic, contemporary as well as historical backgrounds and events.
