About this author

I'm an author, but I'm a reader, too, and my reviews here are from a reader's perspective. I love Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer and don't really consider genre when I'm choosing a book, so my list will be eclectic!


Tall Ships Philly and Camden 2015

I had a great time this week at the Tall Ships Philadelphia and Camden festival. I went to the Parade of Sail on Thursday and back the next day to go aboard some of the ships. It was hot and sometimes rainy and occasionally not optimally organized, but my lucky ship karma came through in a couple of instances, making it an overall positive experience.

The Marquis de Lafayette is one of my his...

I loved the first book in this series, and the second one didn't disappoint. These books are deightful, well-plotted, romantic, and erudite. And have Sherlock Holmes in them! I don't think it gets any better.
The Perfect Summer by Juliet Nicolson

I liked this well enough, but agree with other reviewers about its limitations. It's not a solid narrative, but a series of vignettes about various characters from all classes, some related and some not so much. You don't really get a sense of where ...more

I have made a momentous discovery: there is as much Sherlock Holmes published fanfic as there is Jane Austen published fanfic (well, almost).* I've actually known about The Beekeeper's Apprentice for some time now, but seeing the film Mr. Holmes (whi ...more

“...we may indeed assume, with a high degree of probability, that Jane Austen went commando.”
Margaret C. Sullivan, The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World

“How to explain the sheer tingling joy one experiences when two interesting, complex, and occasionally aggravating characters have at last settled their misunderstandings and will live happily ever after, no matter what travails life might throw in their path, because Jane Austen said they will, and that's that? How to describe the exhilaration of being caught up in an unknown but glamorous world of balls and gowns and rides in open carriages with handsome young men? How to explain that the best part of Jane Austen's world is that sudden recognition that the characters are just like you?”

“What I mean is, like you to have everything you want. Wished it was me, that's all”
Georgette Heyer, Cotillion

“Elinor agreed with it all, for she did not think he deserved the compliment of rational opposition.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen

“You need not hurry when the object is only to prevent my saying a bon mot, for there is not the least wit in my nature. I am a very matter-of-fact, plain-spoken being, and may blunder on the borders of a repartee for half an hour together without striking it out.”
Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

“Sir Thomas was indeed the life of the party, who at his suggestion now seated themselves round the fire.”
Jane Austen
