I write str8 romances under the name Frances DeleCourt Winters. My romance "The Fortune Teller's Garden" was published in 2014 by Black Lyon Publishing and my Rom/Com "The Girl with Flowers in her Hair" came out in 2017. I write gay romances under the name Daniel Stephens. "Surfacing" (A Romance Reviews "Top Pick"), was published in 2016 by Wild Rose Publishing and added to their Champagne Rose line. My research interests include Victorian Sensation Fiction and overlooked Victorian female authors. I am currently researching the rise of Female Spiritualists in the 1870s.
