Harriet1   WELCOME!

Hello!  This is my Author site where I display the books I’ve written and give you a little bit of information about them, and about me.

But first, if you would like to be a subscriber to my blogs, please go to the Contact page and fill out the form. You may be certain that your information will remain TOTALLY confidential.

Right now I’m 78 years old, and retired in 1996 from a high-tech newspaper called InfoWorld where I worked as Coordinator of Editorial Research.  So all my books have been written since then, but only one is from nearly that long ago (Jennifer’s Journey, which I wrote in honor of my oldest grandniece, who was 9 at the time – she’s now 25, and has a seven-year-old of her own).  It was published online in 2001 or so, and then re-published several years ago with a name change, to The Triggams: Jennifer’s Journey. The Triggams are peculiar doll-like creatures from a different dimension, who came to visit Jennifer and ask for her help.  You could call it a juvenile fantasy.

Just four years ago, I worked with publisher Fountain Blue, to publish my first novella, The Wizard’s Key (about a fairy called Petulya), and then a follow-up of short stories with the same characters, called Adventures in Fyelda (Fyelda is Petulya’s world).  Then a year later, Fountain Blue published The Haunting of Wicker House. 

My latest book, published on amazon.com, is The Dawn People, a series of novellas about adolescent girls (young women) in a prehistoric tribe who might have become legends.  Just before that, I self-published my first thriller, a novella titled Nature’s Gory.

I’m having a problem with my domain name, and may lose this website. If I do, I understand that it may remain available, but you won’t be able to find it yourself when you search for “www.darlingbooks.com.” I’m sorry, but it’s a matter of inability to recall my username and password.  Maybe the support people will get back to me and help; if they do, great.

Thanks for visiting.


I'd love to hear from you about my stories
