Fiction & Poetry by Rachel Dacus


The Invisibles   +  Saffron Greene’s ability to see ghosts is just one of the reasons for the fallout with her older sister Elinor. So when their late father bequeaths them a cottage on the Ligurian Coast, Saffron fears only heartache with her estranged sibling. And her worry is confirmed when the house turns out to be home to the spirit of 19th century poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. “A timeless and poignant story” — Amazon reader review

The Renaissance Club   +   How far one will one woman go to meet her soul mate and discover who she truly is — even to another century? In her tiny carrel at the college, young art historian May Gold is happy to daydream her life away, imagining herself in the arms of her hero, 17th century artist Gianlorenzo Bernini.  “Enchanting, rich and romantic” – Kerry Lonsdale, author of the Everything Series.

The Time Gatherer       Can love in the wrong century end well for the right time traveler? Not if a secret society of scientists wants to kill you and your new love, because timegathering can be both a curse and a gift. The Time Gatherer is the second book in the romantic, gripping Timegathering Series. Coming soon! A story called “romantic, adventurous time travel”.

Arabesque, Gods of Water and Air, Femme au Chapeau, and Earth Lessons.“  + “Rachel Dacus’ poetry sings and celebrates the body and spirit in form and function, freedom and flight. Throughout this world of journey and process, here and there, she acclaims what underlies, immutable.” — Jeff Santosuosso, Editor-in-Chief, Panoply.
