Dear Librarian:

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns – and the heroines who use them all - THE FRIDAY SOCIETY follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women in London, 1900, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, inventor's assistant; Michiko, combat instructorıs assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. Their lives become inexorably intertwined in solving a mystery after a chance meeting at a ball, a ball that ends with a murder.

Taking place in the past, but with a modern, irreverent flare, this Steampunk thriller introduces three unforgettable heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

  My goal with this book was not only to write a fun "superheroes origins story", but also to create three strong, intelligent female heroes who have a friendship bond like the ones I've experienced: one that is supportive, based on mutual respect and a shared sense of humour.  No "frenemies" here.  Just real friendship.
