Jillian Kent, today’s Featured Beau Monde Author, has been writing for years and now her dream is coming true.

She is also a full-time counselor for nursing students, has a masters degree in social work, and is fascinated with human behavior and how our minds work. Because she works in contemporary society she thought it would be fun and interesting to explore what might have happened in a lunatic asylum in Regency England. That’s just a snippet of how her story idea was conceived and she hopes you will escape into the past with her and find faith for the future. You’ll enjoy this journey.

Jillian is more than enthusiastic about the release of her first book, Secrets of the Heart, The Ravensmoore Chronicles, Book One ( Coming May 2011) and is thrilled that Romantic Times gave Secrets of the Heart 4 STARS!

If you want to read the first chapter of this novel to see if it’s your kind of read, please visit her website at http://www.jilliankent.com/books/ . You’ll find a great book trailer waiting for you there.  Jillian also invites you to join in conversation on her blog anytime, plus, about twice a month she blogs with other Realms buddies at http://justthewritecharisma.blogspot.com/

  1. Congrats on the 4 stars, Jillian! And I am intrigued by the setting of your novel. Lunatic asylums ran the gamut during the Regency from lovely private homes to horrible, horrible warehouses in which patients simply waited for death. I’ll be very interested to read your book!

  2. Hi Louisa,
    I hope you get a chance to read it. It’s different, but it’s getting good reviews. Hope it appeals to a wide audience.
    Enjoy!
    Jillian

    • Jillian and Louisa,
      The book sounds fascinating.
      Especially as I’ve recently discovered that the practise of locking people away on flimsy excuses in makeshift asylums continued on well past the Regency. Well into our recent history in many countries.

      • Suzi,
        It’s so true about the practice of being able to lock people away on flimsy excuses. Very scary. One of the writer’s that wrote a lot about medicine, madness, and London was Roy Porter who died in 2002 I think. I use his books all the time for research purposes if anyone out there is interested in these subjects.

  3. Hi Jillian,

    What a coincidence (again)! Saw that you were the featured author today and learned all about you and your book! I’m adding it to my Amazon wish list (makes it easy for my husband to give me presents!) ;0)

    Good Luck,
    Mary Moore

    • Hey Mary,
      Fancy meeting you here. 🙂 So glad you’re putting my novel on your wish list! You are a smart lady directing hubby to your Amazon list. I’ve got an awesome hubby but he wouldn’t even know how to find my Amazon wish list. 🙂
      Take Care!
      Jillian
