The Tumbling Turner Sisters makes you laugh while it makes you think, then sticks with you long after the last vibrant page is savored.— Lynn Cullen, bestselling author of Twains End and Mrs. Poe
Hi—thanks for coming, and thanks for your interest in my books.
My new novel, The Tumbling Turner Sisters, is about a poverty-stricken family of four girls who try their hand as an acrobatic act in vaudeville in 1919. Teenagers Winnie, Kit, and Gert, and recently widowed Nell travel from town to town and meet a wide cast of performers, from the kindly past-their-prime Jewish comedians, to the intriguing African American tap dancer, to the conniving French singer who tries to ruin their act.
The Tumbling Turner Sisters is my first foray into historical fiction, inspired by the life of my vaudevillian great-grandfather. I loved researching this fascinating American era—at the close of World War 1, with Women’s Suffrage and Prohibition looming—almost as much as writing about it. It’s now available at IndieBound, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iTunes and Google Books, as an audio book, and at your local bookstore.
