Romantic intrigues set in Regency England…
Heart-warming stories you can’t put down
Welcome, and thanks for stopping by! My site has been totally revamped, so please do take a look around. I also invite you to visit my blog, “Musings on the Journey” (where you might find some writerly advice or a surprise guest blogger with a quite different point of view to entertain you).
Escape into early 19th century England with me for a few hours to laugh, find love, and face dangerous challenges from the comfort of your favorite reading chair!

My books are a little different, most people agree. Putting a twist on the usual expectations is always risky –but so much fun! With more plot, and sometimes a little darker than the “traditional” Regency subgenre books, my stories lean towards the “Historical” subgenre, but they are “sweet” (no explicit sex), despite strong attractions and sexual tension between characters. I know that disappoints some of you (and cheers others). To me, the story is what’s important. My characters let me know how far they will go, in their unique situations and this time period. I’m not fond of rules or policies –just of what seems believable.
Will my new work be different? We’ll have to see! New characters, new situations –although the book I am working on now picks up the story of two characters who have already appeared in earlier books. Click on “Upcoming” under the BOOKS link to get more info on the new story.
ABOUT THE WISTERIA: the sketch on my header is by artist friend Warren Rogers, from a book flyer he did for me. It figures in AN UNLIKELY HERO, although it was still rare in England at that time. Don’t you think it’s romantic? It’s one of my favorite flowering vines, despite being a pest in my garden!
