Stolen Moments ~ Welcome to my blog

Showcasing a fab author and her book, The Girl from Oto

I am more than delighted to participate in Amy Maroney’s blog tour for her book, The Girl from Oto – now available on audio as well! I know for a fact that Amy’s writing is lyrical and powerful, and as I have also had the pleasure of collaborating with her on an anthology of short stories, I jumped at the opportunity to further showcase her writing. If you’ve not read anything by Amy, you’re in for a treat!


A Renaissance-era woman artist and an American scholar. Linked by a 500-year-old mystery…

The secrets of the past are irresistible—and treacherous.

1500: Born during a time wracked by war and plague, Renaissance-era artist Mira grows up in a Pyrenees convent believing she is an orphan. When tragedy strikes, Mira learns the devastating truth about her own origins. But does she have the strength to face those who would destroy her?

2015: Centuries later, art scholar Zari unearths traces of a mysterious young woman named Mira in two 16th-century portraits. Obsessed, Zari tracks Mira through the great cities of Europe to the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago—and is stunned by what she finds. Will her discovery be enough to bring Mira’s story to life?

A powerful story and an intriguing mystery, The Girl from Oto is an unforgettable novel of obsession, passion, and human resilience.
