I grew up in America, but now I live in Wales with my husband, fellow writer Patrick Samphire, our sons, "Mr Darcy" and "Baby 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.

Thanks so much for the lovely feedback I’ve gotten for “Flying Magic” on Facebook, email and elsewhere! It really, really means a lot to me.


If you recall, “Flying Magic” was written on commission for the winner of the Con-or-Bust auction earlier this year…and now one more reader is going to get the chance to commission a new short-short story from me, selecting any character from any of my nov...

“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.”

“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!
