about me

I live in the South, USA).

I have 5 books published, this last one "The Nightingale's Song" to be published in Australia in 2014.

I write about different cultures: Berber, Turkish, Celtic, French, Japanese and Hungarian.

I am a bellydancer and draw from my experience in some of my writing.

Most recently, I have finished "A Kapitany", a slightly bdsm novel 5 years in the writing. I have posted this novel on Authomony.com up until Chapter 12. It runs to 40 chapters.
It is finally finished and am rewriting some of the chapters.

"The Kimono"

Jane Kohut-Bartels

Time warp from 21st century to 16th Samurai Japan. Bloody battles. Young Japanese/American woman buys a kimono and is involved with daimyo.

Mari is a 34 year old woman, trapped in an unhappy marriage, buys an antique kimono and is warped back to 16th century Japan, where she is commanded by a magician/wizard Yamabushi daimyo. He is a warlord and is embroiled with the reigning shogun to gather troops to put down a rebellion of peasants. He is very old....being rather immortal, and has retainers of Yamabushi cult, and a particularly nasty tengu advisor who is a shapeshifter. Mari is involved in all of this and rarely escapes back to the 21st century, but then she decides that as weird as Japan in the 16th century is, it's a more exciting life than married to her data communications husband, Steven. Mari returns a couple of times to modern Kyoto, but the lure of Lord Mori makes her put the kimono back on and in the light of the full moon, she is transported back to his castle. She is able to research the particular battle that is historical, and she knows the ending. Back she goes and they (Lord Mori and his advisors) have usage for her knowledge: Who wins this battle?


"Az Kapitany"

Jane Kohut-Bartels

A novel of Domination and submission. Set in the US and Hungary, amongst art thieves and vineyards.

"Az Kapitany" ( "The Master" in Hungarian) is about a 60ish Hungarian Dom who inherits a vineyard in Hungary and is also an art thief in Europe. He meets and romances a middle aged American divorced woman who is slowly drawn into the world of bdsm. She is fascinated by the world of her lover, Vadas Dohendy, and finds herself both attracted and repelled by the various people that frequent his world. She may be just a pawn for him, or perhaps he has changed his stripes, but it's not clear to Elizabeth yet. However, Vadas is challenged by an old enemy, one who is a sexual Sadist and a very dangerous man. Elizabeth has to be 'trained' in the behaviors of Vadas' world for her own protection and safety, but it's a frightening and confusing world. She has to face issues of submission and humiliation, and she is a proud and foolish woman. There are no guarantees that Vadas will be able to out-fox his old enemy but there are high stakes in the doings. This novel is not finished.
