Rick Vealabout this book: The Master of Whitehall is a novel about a young woman, Katelyn Corbin, trying to restart her life and finish college after her parents are murdered. After meeting a seemingly wonderful young man, James Dubois, the real life "Master of Whitehall", Katelyn falls madly in love with him. Her romance brings her face to face with ideas that she never thought possible. It's ultimately a love story, real and unconditional, between her and James.
I have often heard that if you want to write a book, then write the book you would want to read. It will make others want to read it, too. I enjoy reading paranormal, especially vampire romance stories. After reading what was readily available I decided to write my own story. I wanted the story set in Charleston, SC because of all the history there. I remembered a tour guide mentioning a Whitehall Plantation somewhere outside of Charleston which was now nothing but ruins. I liked the name and started thinking about the "what if's" of a real Whitehall.
My cover art was done by Rae Monet. I contacted her and described the book and the characters to her, asking her to use her imagination. I think she absolutely captured the spirit of the characters I wrote about in The Master of Whitehall.
The writing of The Master of Whitehall took almost eighteen months from first idea until publication as an e-book. Sometimes the writing was easy, the story coming quickly; sometimes a little more difficult. By far the hardest part of all was the editing, making sure the grammar was correct, and structurally ensuring the story flowed smoothly. One of the most exciting times of my life was the day I received the first book from the printer; a real book, in print, with my name on the cover! There are two versions currently available for my reader's enjoyment. There is an e-book on Amazon and a softcover print version directly from me, the author.
My greatest desire for my readers is that they enjoy reading The Master of Whitehall as much as I enjoyed writing it. I hope that it may inspire others to decide to do what they always wanted to do and write their own story, too.
