A Chapter

Yes, I am working on the novel and to prove it, here is a chapter! 😄 It can almost stand as short-story on its own.

Saving herself for marriage seemed terribly old-fashioned to Rhonda Deerfield, yet that was just what she had been doing. She had no illusions that her best friends had done the same. Rhonda would not change her habit this night. No. If it were going to happen it would not be with Roger.
Roger was trustworthy. She was pretty sure of this. Oh, he could be encouraged. Couldn’t all guys? Roger Starr was no one she intended to encourage.

(Possible) Cover Reveal

This is a 'dummy' of a possible cover for my upcoming novel, 'One Summer  in the Sun.' The title is also subject to change! It was created by my editor and publisher, Stephen Brooke.

'One Summer' is set in the summer of 1968 in the Gulf Coast Florida town of Naples. We will be finished with the writing and editing pretty much when we are finished! Maybe this year, maybe in 2020. But at least Stephen and Arachis Press had enough faith in me to make up this tentative cover.

I created this blog and then neglected it! But Spring is waking up outside --- can you blame me? :) I have popped in to mention that I now have an account at Wattpad: It is likely that I shall put up chapters of the novel in progress there.

I'll be reading too. There is a great deal to read there and most of it is not very good. Some, though, is worth the effort of hunting it down.

From the Beginning

Hi, this is a blog/site for author Sienna Santerre. It is being maintained by her publisher, Arachis Press (primarily, to protect her privacy), but Sienna will be posting here. Don't get confused if it says 'Stephen Brooke.' More to come!
