Tara Morgana is available from Scarlet Imprint both in its standard hardback edition and as a Bibliothèque Rouge paperback: the fine edition is sold out.

It can also be purchased in Kindle format.

The real Daisy (dark) and Mollie (blonde) can be seen in this clipping from a local newspaper of 1948.

Scarlet Imprint also included my writing in their anthologies Datura and Mandragora.
