 Press Contact:             Carla Dellaporta




Penelope Door, the pen name of Gloucester resident and writer, is releasing her first novel, Wounds of the Past.

This work of fiction is set in a small New England city and focuses on Matilda Dante, a complex woman struggling with hazy childhood memories – the most haunting of which is the spontaneous appearance of crosses on her wrists. Matti’s stigmata, and the bizarre death of her mother, were both chronicled in the local newspapers but get her no closer to bringing to light hidden family secrets. Guided by a gilded talisman and unsullied love, Matti begins to unearth the wounds of the past, discovering a most unexpected path to her future.

“I am thrilled to be among the group of amazingly talented writers on Cape Ann and am eager to see the public’s reaction to my debut novel”, Penelope stated.

On Wednesday, August 31st, Wounds of the Past will be available on Amazon, at the Bookstore of Gloucester on Main Street and several copies will be donated to the Sawyer Free Library by the author.

Penelope Door will also be featured at the Eastern Point Lit House’s Third Thursday Open Mic night on September 15th at 261 Main Street, Gloucester at 7:30PM. No fee. No RSVP. Please stop by to hear a reading and to learn the true identity of “Penelope Door”.
