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.

An Historically Pleasant Surprise!

An Historically Pleasant Surprise!

When you write historical fiction and are invited by a group of historians (both Pākeha and Māori) who research and live (and whose ancestors lived…) in the exact area you've written about in one of your historical novels… well, you might forgive me for being a bit nervous. Perhaps even historically terrified!


It was well received, but one never knows if it's politeness or not… but after the em...
