About this author

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. I've just added a YA novella to the trilogy, COURTING MAGIC (set five years after the events of Book 3). I've also published more than thirty short stories for adults in a variety of magazines, anthologies, and podcasts.

I only rate and review the books that I like, which is why all of my ratings are 4 or 5 stars.


There are some life lessons I never seem to learn for long…but maybe if I write this one down, today, that'll help it stick in my mind for next time….

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!

Mary Really enjoyed Kat, Incorrigible, Stephanie! I can't wait to read book two! I'm so glad Sara recommended it to me. If you have any Georgette Heyer recs, I'd love to know where to start!
