)-- A storyteller at heart, Struna bases her tales on her own personal experiences. She created a contemporary character, amateur sleuth, Nancy Caldwell, the vehicle that moves the story between time periods in alternating chapters.
Struna’s first two successful novels, The Old Cape House and The Old Cape Teapot, were pirate adventures based on the 1717 Cape legend of Maria Hallett and her pirate lover Sam Bellamy, captain of the wrecked ship Whydah. Her imagination took flight again when she discovered a turquoise 1940 Fiesta-ware cup buried in her Cape woods, it ignited an idea for a story about the forties on Cape Cod and ‘Old Hollywood’ and her third novel, The Old Cape Hollywood Secret, was born.
The Old Cape House – 2013, earned First Place-Historical Fiction-Royal Dragonfly Awards For Excellence in Literature-2014. The Old Cape House along with her second novel, The Old Cape Teapot-2014 garnered #1 Amazon Best Sellers List three times. Her first two books have combined sales, ebook and paperback, of over 38,000. With more than 1000 reviews and hundreds of followers, Struna keeps her readership anticipating the next Old Cape story, this time featuring Alaska and Provincetown in the late 1800’s coming in 2019.
Struna is a member of International Thriller Writers, Panelist Thrillerfest 2016; Member in Letters, National League of American Pen Women; President of Cape Cod Writers Center; Sisters In Crime, National, New England, LA. and writes a blog about the unique facts and myths of Cape Cod.
