About Persevero Press

per·se·ver-o (pûr'-vîr-o')
intr.v. per·se·vere, per·se·ver·ing, per·se·veres
To persist in or remain constant to a purpose, idea, or task in the face of obstacles or discouragement.

My novels have been traditionally published since 1984, by such major publishers as Scholastic, Dell, Bantam, Ballantine, Random House, Scribner, Tarcher, Berkley/Penguin, Simon & Schuster, the University of Texas Press, Harlequin, Cora Verlag (Germany), Prentiss-Hall, Fawcett. You can see some of those books in Persevero’s header photograph and find a full list here.

I expect to continue writing for traditional publishers. But I’m always intrigued by new challenges, so I’ve decided to create my own press and publish independently, as well. Persevero Press is the home I’m building for these new projects, which will appear in both print and digital formats.

So far (the last months of 2016), I’ve published two books: A Wilder Rose (currently under film option to ThinkFactory Media) and Loving Eleanor. Coming in 2017: The General’s Women. Other projects are in the works. Please watch for updates.
