Purple Velvet Slippers

Karen Miller

Is it possible for people who have known each other in one life to be brought together again in another? Why is it that we feel an immediate closeness to some, and little for others? Anne Byron is serving her sentence in a prison cell in Louisiana in the late 1800s. Shift to present day New York City, in a run-down apartment occupied by Meredith Meyer, an unfulfilled publisher. As the story unfolds through spiritually psychic dreams and foretelling apparitions, Meredith discovers the similarities she shares with Anne upon finding Anne's diary buried in a trunk in her apartment attic.

This novel explores individuality, uniqueness, and the mystery of our pasts, presents, and futures. The color purple symbolically streams throughout the story, weaving both of their lives together. Purple Velvet Slippers explores the very possibility that souls from different eras can be reunited. These similarities could all just be a random coincidence. Or are they?

Karen Miller is a wife and mother of four children, a pre-school teacher, and Zumba instructor. She graduated from Pace University then studied design in New York City, before moving to Connecticut where she currently lives with her husband and golden retriever. She has an affinity for the color purple, anything "vintage-y", red wine, chocolate, rain, and "all things French". She is intrigued by history, especially the Civil War era and is convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she was a Spanish dancer in a previous life! (Even though the DNA ancestry tests have proved otherwise!) Purple Velvet Slippers is her first novel, and she is currently working on its sequel.
