EXCERPT:
STORYTIME AT THE VILLA MARIA by Constance Walker
 South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1939
 The tuxedoed emcee pointed to the last couple on the dance floor and motioned them  forward.  “And your winners of tonight’s Pavilion Dance Hall contest – Miss Mae Agnes Adams and Mr. Dominick Ricci.”   Dominick and Mae Agnes accepted the envelope
containing the two one-dollar bills and bowed first to the other dancers and then to the audience and then Dominick’s eyes searched and found the table where the beautiful redheaded girl was sitting.  “I wish I had won you, instead,” he thought.  The redhead
looked at him with her sad brown eyes as if she heard the words and then quickly looked down at the table.
“And now everyone on the dance floor,” the master of ceremonies said and the girl’s face disappeared behind the crowd of eager dancers.

Michelle McLean is a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl who is addicted to chocolate and Goldfish crackers and spent most of her formative years with her nose in a book. She has a B.S. in History, a M.A. in English, loves history and romance and enjoys spending her time combining the two in her novels.

When Michelle’s not editing, reading or chasing her kids around, she can usually be found in a quiet corner working on her next book. She resides in PA with her husband and two children, an insanely hyper dog, and three very spoiled cats.
