I am hoping that THE BOY IN THE RAIN will be the next novel sold and I will you know as soon as possible. STORY: In the English countryside 1900, the shy 19-year-old painter Robbie falls in love with Anton, a brilliant, troubled man in his late twenties. Set over several years during the early period of persecution of same-sex relationships, their intense and often difficult love will change them in ways neither could expect and allow them to grow into remarkable people, one a famous portraitist and the other a rising politician fighting for the rights of the poor.
Also on my hard drive is BLANCHE AND THE WATER LILIES, the story of Monet's beloved stepdaughter who turned her life around to stand at his side as he painted his great Water Lily paintings for the Paris L'Oranangerie where they hang today. And there is a very unusual novel about EMILY BRONTE AND HER SISTERS. That's pretty far along.
For all those of you who have asked most patiently, the third NICHOLAS COOKE book is 2/3rds done. And now I will say nothing more about all other the 3/4rds written novels lurking on my hard drive!
