Award-winning screenwriter and bestselling novelist Patricia Burroughs—Pooks—began her writing career in romance with five published novels. She received nominations and recognition from RT Reviews and was a Finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA.

For a time, Pooks was lured away from her novels to pursue a career in screenwriting, where her story-telling gift again won her recognition in the form of a Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting from the Academy of M

Ah, you've been reading my blog or following me on Pinterest! Cornwall will definitely play a big part in the trilogy.

My husband and I have made several research trips to England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. Not everywhere we've visited will make it into this series, however. And one of the most significant locations was discovered through long distance research. I looked for Tudor manors online and after I found some that were part of the National Trust, I sent off for their guidebooks. Once I realized that a form of Baddesley Clinton would be amazing for my purposes, I nabbed it and started writing. It was only after This Crumbling Pageant was complete that I got to actually visit that wonderful manor house. I could have moved right in. I wanted to live there. I want to go back!

I loved writing it so much, and got so caught up in the writing and the world, I wanted to do my best to duplicate it but this time in my own world, with my own characters.

I looked at that story and asked myself, what is it that made the writing such an act of passion and joy? And then I took those three elements and began creating my own world. One was a certain kind of romantic relationship that intrigued me, but only because it is part of a bigger relationship that goes beyond a love story.

One was certain kinds of characters--but to say what it is about these characters that inspired me is something of a spoiler.

And one was setting--England. I'd already been to England four times, and once I knew I was going to write this story, I planned more targeted research trips to the British Isles.

Finally, I knew I wanted to write this fantasy in a historical period, even though the fanfic I wrote was contemporary. This was my story and I love history.

I couldn't decide between Tudor England and Regency, and ended up doing both, if you consider that the roots of the Fury Triad are tangled in the reigns of Henry VIII and his children, though Persephone Fury lives in the time of the Regency.

Thanks for asking!(less)
