Ursula LeCoeur is the pen name of our mother-daughter writing team, I, Mary and my daughter Helen, set our Love in New Orleans Series in America's most romantic city in the 1880s. Our witty romances have been best described as Queen Victoria meets the Big Easy.
I came to fiction after years as a journalist and editor of a NASCAR fan magazine. Helen's first book, In the Hope of Rising Again (Penguin Press 2004, Riverhead 2005), is an historical literary novel also available on Amazon.com.
We began writing together when Helen suggested they write the books they'd like to read. Helen lives in New Orleans. I live outside Philadelphia, but visit Helen often to write and feast on pecan pralines.
We love to hear from readers. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. On our website, we blog about New Orleans history and food and post traditional Southern recipes.
My daughter and I both enjoy cooking traditional southern recipes.
