About this author

I discovered Georgette Heyer when I was thirteen, and wrote my first historical romance a few years later. My writing has improved since then, but my fascination with all things Regency hasn't changed. When not reading, writing, or researching, I enjoy cooking and marathoning old TV shows. I live in Seattle with my best friend.

FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec.

Hey! I’m taking suggestions for my next hero’s profession. Must require going into country houses. Art appraiser? Architect? 1770s-1810s OK. This is brainstorming, it doesn’t have to be brilliant, just throw it at the wall and we’ll see if it sticks!

“I comfort myself with the reflection that your wife will possibly be able to curb your desire--I admit, a natural one for the most part--to exterminate your fellows.”
Georgette Heyer

“Many a law, many a commandment have I broken, but my word never.”
Walter Scott

“Love's mysteries in souls do grow,
But yet the body is his book.”
John Donne, The Complete English Poems

“She suddenly saw Wimsey in a new light. She knew him to be intelligent, clean, courteous, wealthy, well-read, amusing and enamored, but he had not so far produced in her that crushing sense of inferiority which leads to prostration and hero-worship. But she now realized that there was, after all, something godlike about him. He could control a horse.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Have His Carcase

“He had never been interested in stories at any age, and had never quite understood the basic concept. He'd never read a work of fiction all the way through. He did remember, as a small boy, being really annoyed at the depiction of Hickory Dickory Dock in a rag book of nursery rhymes because the clock in the drawing was completely wrong for the period.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
