Hello, I'm Stephanie Burkhart and I write paranormal romance and historicals. This is my first visit to the LASR Author Spotlight and I'm excited to be here.
The Hungarian is my first novel with Desert Breeze Publishing. It is a sophisticated/intense paranormal romance and takes place in 1901 between England and Budapest. Count Matthias Duma harbors a dark secret, but when he meets a young British noblewoman, Katherine Archibald, he risks everything for her love.
It's currently available as an ebook through the Desert Breeze Website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, the Sony ebook store, All Romance Books, and Books on Board.
My previous released work this year includes "Matchmaking Amusement" in the BeMused Anthology released through Desert Breeze, (4 books, Long & Short Reviews) and The Giving Meadow, a children's print book with 4RV Publishing about a caterpillar who travels through a meadow making friends. My short story, "Royal Pretender" was featured in the Cupid Diaries, published through Classic Romance Revival.
This week I'll be talking about creating settings in stories, creating characters, Hungarian recipes, ebook readers, and today some of my favorites. I spent over 7 years in the military stationed in Germany so I'll share some of my favorite German things. My 2nd favorite country in Europe: Denmark! I was married there in 1991.
