An Annual Celebration of Readers, Writers, and Books
G. S. Singer
G. S. Singer grew up in South Florida's Redland district where he camped, hiked, and devoured every science fiction novel he could find. At the University of Florida, he studied creative writing under authors, Harry Crews and Smith Kirkpatrick. After graduation, Singer co-founded a small-town newspaper filling the roles of reporter, copy writer, editor, and even cartoonist. Praised for his wry humor, intricate plotting, and unforgettable characters, Singer's fiction has been honored in both the Daphne du Maurier, Kiss of Death competition and the Amazon Breakout Novel Award. When he isn't plunging unsuspecting heroes into impossible situations, Singer enjoys the tranquility of the North Georgia Mountains where he lives with his wife and children.
The Cobbler's Daughter
A fast, fun, twenty-four hour, gaslight adventure.
1872. When virginal Jenny Crispin is dumped at the altar by a chauvinistic cad, she does what any other modern Victorian girl would do--ditch her corset, move to New York City, and join Glorianna Talmadge's free love presidential campaign. But free love and women presidential candidates aren't particularly popular with the powers that be, and Jenny finds herself chased by a sadistic vice detective through the back alleys of New York. Homeless and penniless, she seeks out the one person in the city with the guts and knowledge to save her: a brothel hopping, virgin fearing, explosives expert named Britt Salter. Too bad he's tied up trying to assassinate the visiting King of Egypt.
