Author S.D. Smithabout this book: This book is essentially a "fish out of water" story with a lot of breath taking twist. There is a deep mystery at the heart of this story that will draw you in by stimulating your curiosity. Slade Sanders is an American black woman who is trying her luck at building a home in Edwardian, high-society, London. She knows she won't be welcomed but is still compelled to dive in.

I'm a sucker for history, large old houses and people trying to change their lives. Why not combine all three? The story is a mixture of historical fiction, magical realism and mystery. Two of those elements are on the subtle side. It's like X-Men meets Downton Abbey, wrapped in an enigma.

You might like this series if you are like me; a geek at heart and open to new things. This series is a different type of story and you might have to be patient with it but it will be worth it.

This book took about 9 months to writer, give or take. The book title, "The Secrets of Slade Sanders" is a pure reflection of the contents. There are a lot of secrets in this book. Some belong to the protagonist, some do not. I created the cover myself. Yup, created the image and designed the book cover. Once you finish reading the novel, look at the cover. It will make sense.

I did a ton of research for this series. I hope it shows. I hope it can be appreciated. I learned just how much I love to write. I have many ideas for novels in my head. I wish there were enough hours in the day and I had infinite energy to turn them out for people to read. That would be heaven.

I hope you, the readers, like this novel. I hope you like this one and the ones that will follow it. "The Secrets of Slade Sanders" is my debut novel. My writing will only get better from here.
