Books, books, books and books. And a gin and tonic (Bombay Sapphire if you have it!). Of course there are other things in my world - a husband of over thirty years, a grown son, family and two adorable cats. But my professional life is focused on writing, and has been for more years than I care to recall. As an ex-Brit, my love of the written word crossed the Atlantic with me and stuck to my side, urging me to write, to publish and finally to become an Independent author in control of her career. It's a wonderful roller-coaster and I can't wait to see what's around the next curve!
Coming Soon and
As you'll have seen on my landing page, there's a Christmas novella available for pre-order, and it's a final farewell to a couple you've come to know from the Ridlington series. Sir Peregrine Hawkesbury and Mrs. Grace Cheney are both somewhat reclusive, but it's quite possible that a winter storm, a stranded family and some traditional music might change their situations...for the better!
My visit to RomCon and Richmond was a delight - I highly recommend this conference for a chance to spend so much quality time with readers, and meeting new writers! I had a huge amount of fun doing both.
I'm also thrilled to announce that in 2019 I will be returning to The Historical Romance Retreat for several days of high jinks with readers and writers who share my love of the past. More on that (and costumes) as we get into the New Year.
It's AUDIO BOOK time for LETTING OFF STEAM!!! I've finally gotten around to putting another audio book out there, and this is the first of three in my Steampunk Seductions series. They're not long books, so probably not great for a cross-country drive, but for an afternoon at the beach or the pool, they should work.
The second and third books will be going into production soon, and I'll have release dates on those as the process gets underway.
