My first writing effort was a five sentence essay in first grade. The subject was my dog, Penny, a red cocker spaniel. Now I write novels, but one thing hasn’t changed: my novels always include at least one dog.
When I was in junior high, I read Pride and Prejudice and fell in love with Fitzwilliam Darcy. Later, when I was working in a job from hell, I discovered the world of Georgette Heyer. After reading Heyer’s entire Regency oeuvre at least three times, I decided to write my own traditional Regency romance. The result was A Match for Lady Constance (Avalon, 2005; Montlake Romance, 2012.) My second Regency was A Sensible Lady: A Traditional Regency Romance (eFrog Press, 2012.) Recently, my third traditional Regency was released, Boston Tangle: Regency Comes to America (eFrog Press, 2015.)
