Escape to Osprey Cove


Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold was born and educated in Pennsylvania, where she spent a large part of her adult life and worked for a large corporation. After her only daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina, where she worked as a Realtor and began running a recreational business with her husband. She currently resides on eleven acres near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau lake chain that provides the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series. The series was born from her love of that region of Canada, the outdoors, and lake life. Many years were spent enjoying the Rideau, staying in lodges, and for a time, her privately-owned cottage. Among her many interests are painting, gardening, and cooking.. And, of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment — the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons and watching her kitties interact and play. Nearly all of these interests and life experiences are reflected in her books.

Meet Ken Paterson

Writer of grammar books by profession, daydreamer by habit, Ken was walking home at dusk one day through Regent’s Park in London, when he stopped thinking about noun phrases and relative clauses, and wondered instead what would happen if a fairy appeared in his path and offered to grant him a wish. What would he choose and where would it lead him? Inspired by ‘Lost Horizon’ and ‘A Matter of Life and Death’, his first novel, ‘The Story of the Cloth’, provided the answer.

“This book made me laugh out loud in many places and shed a tear in others.” – Siobhan Curham, author ‘An American in Paris’ ‘What a totally wonderful heart warming read, loved it’ Goodreads Review 

‘This was a nice, easy chick lit read. It has great characters and is really funny in places even though it is about coping with the death of a loved one. It can be related to on lots of different levels. I liked that it has a sort of hidden message, which is to not judge a book by its cover. I enjoyed it very much’ Goodreads Review
