Meet Author Diana Rubino

Thanks, Margaret, for a great post.


A big welcome back on this blog to the American author, Diana Rubino, who is going to talk today about DARK BREW, her time travel romance:

Learn from the past or forever be doomed to repeat it. Accused of her husband’s murder, Kylah McKinley, a practicing Druid, travels back through time to her past life in 1324 Ireland and brings the true killer to justice. Two months of hell change Kylah’s life forever. On her many past life regressions, she returns to 14th century Ireland as Alice Kyteler, a druid moneylender falsely accused of murdering her husband. Kylah’s life mirrors Alice’s in one tragic event after another—she finds her husband sprawled on the floor, cold, blue, with no pulse. Evidence points to her, and police arrest her for his murder.

Get Ephemeral New York’s newest book!

As a historical novelist, I’ve written several books set in NYC through the centuries, and just purchased THE GILDED AGE. Looking forward to it!

Ephemeral New York

Readers of Ephemeral New York have probably figured out that the Gilded Age is one of my favorite periods in the city’s history.

In the decades after the Civil War, Gotham was on the rise, transforming from a small-scale city lit by gas and powered by horses into a mighty metropolis of skyscrapers, subways, blazing electric light, and rapid social change.


The Gilded Age in New York, 1870-1910 (published by Black Dog & Leventhal/Hachette, September 2016) takes a deeper dive into this fascinating era, exploring what day-to-day life was like in an age of posh Fifth Avenue mansions and crowded tenements; of deep political corruption and a widening gap between rich and poor.

The book itself is available on various book sites and of course in stores.

Thank you to everyone who enjoys reading Ephemeral New York as much as I love researching and writing every post. It’s been a…

Today’s Featured Author – Diana Rubino

Into Another World

Today, I welcome author Diana Rubino to my blog. Her time-traveling novel, Dark Brew, was released in July 2016.


Tell us a bit about yourself. 

My passion for history and travel has taken me to every locale of my books, and short stories, set in Medieval and Renaisance England, Egypt, the Mediterranean, colonial Virginia, New England, and New York. My urban fantasy romance, FAKIN’ IT, won a Top Pick award from Romantic Times. I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, the Richard III Society and the Aaron Burr Association. I live on Cape Cod with my husband Chris. In my spare time, I bicycle, golf, play my piano and devour books of any genre.

Where were you born and where do you call home?

Born in Jersey City, NJ, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, and now call Cape Cod home with my husband.

The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper, and Writing

Sgt. Pepper certainly did change the course of music history….great article, very thought provoking! Diana Rubino

Story Empire

My copy of a Sgt. Peppers vinyl picture disc.

Hi, SE Readers. Joan here. I’ve been a Beatles fan since I was six years old. Ever since I heard that first song on the radio back in 1964 (yes, I’m dating myself), I was fascinated by those four young men from Liverpool, England.

I can’t remember which of their songs I heard first—it may have been “She Loves You” or “From Me to You,” but most likely it was “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” It doesn’t matter. From that point on, all other music that I listened to seemed almost obsolete. (Having a teenage brother with a rather extensive record collection helped develop my love of music.)

The hit songs kept coming, the group kept touring, and finally, in August 1966, they performed their last on-stage concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. The reason they quit? Stage sound equipment…
