I grew up in America, but now I live in Wales with my husband, fellow writer Patrick Samphire, our sons, "Mr Darcy" and "Mr X", and our crazy-sweet border collie mix, Maya. My MG Regency fantasy trilogy was published in the US as the KAT, INCORRIGIBLE trilogy and in the UK as THE UNLADYLIKE ADVENTURES OF KAT STEPHENSON. The trilogy also has a stand-alone epilogue - the YA novella COURTING MAGIC (set five years after the events of Book 3).

I also have two adult historical fantasy novels, MASKS AND SHADOWS and CONGRESS OF SECRETS, both published by Pyr Books in 2016, and a new MG fantasy series coming from Bloomsbury UK and US, beginning in Spring 2017 with THE DRAGON WITH A CHOCOLATE HEART.

To get early sneak peeks at new stories and novels,

I’ve always loved my local Waterstones and felt really lucky, too, in how supportive they’ve always been of my books. It’s an incredibly warm, welcoming environment in every way, and my family visits it at least once a week as readers, so of course it was the natural place to host my launch party for The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart.


But I still never expected this.


And OF COURSE I had to head s...

Lucy Parker's ACT LIKE IT is one of my favorite rom-coms ever, to the point where I read it 3 times (!!!) last year, because it immediately became such a comfort book for me. (It's one of the few books I own as both an ebook and a paper book, because ...more

“I was twelve years of age when I cut my hair short, became a highwayman, and captured husbands for both of my sisters.

I could hardly wait to find out what would happen next.”
Stephanie Burgis, Kat, Incorrigible

“I was twelve years of age when I chopped off my hair, dressed as a boy, and set off to save my family from impending ruin.

I made it almost to the end of my front garden.”
Stephanie Burgis, Kat, Incorrigible

“For me, Mama's cabinet had been full of mysteries and secrets to be puzzled out, like an adventure. For them it had been full of memories. And I had broken all of them.”

Thank you! I've added them. I'm surprised it's taken me so long to read her, as I've heard so many good things about her writing for years. So much to read, so little time!

Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed Kat, Incorrigible!

My personal favorite Heyer novels (each of them quite different from each other) are The Talisman Ring (my top favorite!), Devil's Cub, and Faro's Daughter. The nice thing is, there was so much variety in her writing, if you try different novels of hers, you're almost sure to find at least one that clicks!

Kate I absolutely adored A Most Improper Magick. But you already know that since I've been gushing about it on Twitter. ;)

US people, A Most Improper Magick is a book you should get next year, I highly recommend it!
