Acknowledgements

 

I am forever grateful to Gayle Mills and Robin Helm, for being such good friends, helpful beta-readers, and fabulous editors.

Betty Campbell Madden, Lisa Diederich, and Stephanie Hamm, I appreciate all your cold-reading this story and helping with the plot and various other errors that I made while carrying out Gayle and Robin’s recommendations.

To the members of BeyondAusten.com, I am thankful for the time you took to read, comment, and give your opinion on my first draft.

Foundation of Love (The Gypsy Blessing 2)
was begun in April 2011, well before
The Gypsy Blessing
. During a writer’s block, I’d gone searching for writing prompts and came up with a few that seemed interesting. I combined them together, and ideas for
Foundation of Love
started popping into my head. I had absolutely nothing in mind for the Regency story other than the part where she met the gypsy, so I started writing this first, beginning with the letter from Regency Elizabeth. After writing more than half of this story, I sent my idea to a Gayle and Robin. They both recommended that I should write the Regency story first, and
The Gypsy Blessing
was born.

The first draft of this story was posted on BeyondAusten.com from January 2014 through May 2014.

About Wendi Sotis

 

Wendi Sotis is a graduate of Nassau Community College and Adelphi University, and holds a degree in Psychology. Following the birth of her triplets in 2000, she decided to stay at home to raise them.

Having always been an avid reader and adoring fan of Jane Austen, when her triplets were independent enough that she could find a little time to herself, Wendi searched the internet where she discovered a treasure trove of “fan fiction” written by fellow
Janeites
. At first, experiencing Austen’s stories from several different characters’ points of view caught her interest, but then she branched off into reading sequels, “what if” stories, and modernized versions of Austen’s tales.

Though she had always aspired to become a writer, Wendi did not make a serious attempt until one day, after awakening from a dream, her imagination began churning up a tale to surround it.

Wendi continues to write while living on Long Island with her husband, Matt, who paints her covers, her son, and two daughters.

Safekeeping by Wendi Sotis

A woman awakens in a hospital room, injured and surrounded by strangers. The car accident is a blur, and her mind is nearly a blank slate.

The name on her driver’s license reads Elizabeth Becket, and she’s enrolled at a local college, but none of this feels right. Her college application claims she’s a writer—are her vivid and frequent nightmares a story conjured up in her imagination or could they be memories of her former life?

 

The only thing she knows for sure is that an urgent sense of danger casts a shadow over her entire existence.

Irresistibly drawn to Fitz Darcy, the man living next door to her new apartment, her soul longs to trust him. Is he safe to love, or is he part of the frightening events her subconscious is fighting so hard to keep buried?

A contemporary mystery romance with a clever nod to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
