Welcome! Along with my birthday came the wonderful news that I am now a USA Today bestselling author. A huge thank you to all of you who made this possible because I surely couldn't have done it alone! I've now been published a little over two years, but my love of writing has been life long, and I appreciate all the workshops, all the conferences, all the friends — writers, readers, publishers — who imparted their wisdom. My Fair Lily is the book that started it all and I'm delighted to report that Lily and Ewan and his faithful sheepdog Jasper will all make a prominent appearance in one of my upcoming books and I can't wait to tell you all about it in the coming months. So look for your invitation to a wedding, but my hero, the Earl of Everdon, isn't certain yet who the bride will be.
Thank you to all who read and enjoyed Rose Farthingale's story, The Viscount's Rose. You know these Farthingale girls can't keep out of trouble, so was anyone surprised when Rose abducted Julian Emory, her best friend's handsome and mysterious brother? Or when she was unexpectedly trapped in the old hunting lodge along with him as a storm overhead unleashed its fury? I hope you're now looking forward to Nicola Emory's story because she's talking loudly in my head right and I know she's about to get herself into a heap of trouble. Maybe unexpectedly finds herself married when she's stranded in the Scottish Highlands.
Several releases coming in early 2017 is a second romantic fairy tale boxset called Regency Ever After to follow our very popular Once Upon A Regency. My contribution to this next set is The Ugly Duckling Debutante, a story about the power of love and friendship. Another very important boxset coming soon is Hearts of Courage, all proceeds to be donated by the participating authors to a military charity as a thank you to all who protect us. My story is A Match Made In Duty, about the power of love to heal a wounded heart.
Just released in early 2017 is Garden of Light which is Book 2 in my Regency paranormal Dark Gardens series. I'm a sucker for handsome dukes, medieval knights, and mythical creatures of any kind (Fae kings and Dragon Lords), and I love those mysterious, ancient prophecies. Please join me on Fae king Cadeyrn's journey to find the Regency heroine who will save the Fae from those evil Dragon Lords. The Draloch prophecy is now unfolding, and Cadeyrn and the innocent vicar's daughter, Melody Hargreaves, are caught in the middle of a battle between kingdoms.
For me, the fun part about writing is to create the perfect heroine for each of my heroes, to imagine a woman with the heart to love them, the brains to outwit them, and the courage to save them from enemies and often from themselves. The romances I write are historical fiction, but the themes are timeless and universal, about the importance of family, of finding one's inner strength, of forgiveness and kindness, and the magic of romance.
"My Fair Lily is a bona fide page-turner, a delightful Regency historical romance that will leave you clamoring for
more from this exciting debut author."
