Doing NaNoWriMo helps immensely, as you don't have the leisure to have this dreaded malady. Sometimes I find just doing something different within the realm of my writing helps...maybe starting at a different place in the story, or researching some more. I use Scrivener and it makes it easy to fill in the blanks later!(less)

I'm currently working on Book Two: The Hills of Gold Unchanging, and it's nearly done!

In this sequel to A Long Trail Rolling, Aleksandra and Xavier’s 1860 saga continues over the Pony Express Trail of Utah via the silver and gold mining country of 1860’s Nevada and California and through Old San Francisco to Xavier's family hacienda, the Californio Rancho de las Pulgas. Secession menaces, with Southerners are desirous of dragging the new state from the Union and making it their own—and they will stop at nothing to accomplish it.

Book Three: A Sea of Green Unfolding is also nearly complete!
Follow the young couple’s journey to adventure in the turbulent wilderness of 1863 New Zealand. When tragedy strikes in Aleksandra and Xavier’s newly found paradise on their California Rancho, Von Tempsky’s invitation draws them to a peaceful new life in New Zealand—where they arrive to find the land wars between the European settlers and the local Maori have only just begun.

Book Four: A Bold Country Evolving is still in the early research stage, but it'll be on soon!
Aleksandra and Xavier have come a long way to seek a home, but will they find the peace they desire as Aotearoa/New Zealand continues to be divided by strife? Conflicted, their feelings for native peoples at odds with many white settlers, Xavier reluctantly goes to war, leaving Aleksandra alone to negotiate the beginnings of their life in this young country.

I've written and published Book One, A Long Trail Rolling, and Book Two and Book Three are nearly completed! Book Four is partially researched! I'm also writing an equine veterinary book for owners and starting some children's NZ books.

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
In a world where women were bought and sold as horses I had found a man I loved; and married for love. I would never suggest that this was a mistake.
This is a small quotation from a real letter – the only letter preserved from Mary Boleyn, in which she defends her love for her husband. Philippa Gregory's latest novel set in historical England, TIDELANDS, is available in paperback February 18, 2020. Learn more on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43260625-tidelands

Philippa Gregory shared a note and highlight from
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
Half the court seemed to be waking up in the wrong beds. The triumph of Anne, the mistress who had become a wife, was an inspiration to every loose girl in the country.
Anne herself intended to keep her ladies to good behaviour but the pattern of a lady in waiting becoming mistress to the king was set – even before Anne made the ultimate leap to displace the former queen and become queen herself. It was a court of young people, led by adulterous lovers – it could not be the strictly controlled court of Katherine of Aragon.

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
I was near to delighted laughter because Katherine of Aragon was speaking out for the women of the country, for the good wives who should not be put aside just because their husbands had taken a fancy to another, for the women who walked the hard road between kitchen, bedroom, church and childbirth. For the women who deserved more than their husband’s whim.
Exactly, hurrah.
