Born and raised in Anchorage, M.A. Nichols is a lifelong Alaskan with a love of the outdoors. As a child, she despised reading but through the love and persistence of her mother was taught the error of her ways and has had a deep, abiding relationship with it ever since.

She graduated with a bachelor's degree in landscape management from Brigham Young University and a master's in landscape architecture from Utah State University, neither of which has anything to do with why she became a writer but is a fun little tidbit nonetheless. And no, she doesn't have any idea what type of plant you should put in that shady spot out by your deck. She's not that kind of landscape architect. Stop asking.

The poor girl had a tragic story in The Shameless Flirt (more tragic than the readers know because there were things going on behind the scenes that are really heartbreaking for her that I couldn't reveal at that time), but I always knew she would be getting her own happily ever after eventually. She chose to give in to her parents' pressure, but Sir Duncan is so much older than him and isn't destined to live for very long after their wedding. At which time, Lydia will find someone who does make her very happy. :)

I plan on writing that book sometime soon, and hopefully, it should come out in 2021.

UPDATE!!! "A Tender Soul" is Lydia's story. Check it out at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...(less)

I totally understand the confusion. And it's only going to get more so as I start jumping between the Regency and Victorian era and out of any chronological order. I have no planned end for the series, as each time I write a book, I come up with several more ideas for off-shoot stories.

I am working on putting together family trees to go inside the books, but here's an infographic I posted to Instagram that shows the relations between the books:

Quotes by M.A. Nichols  (?)

“He had faced armed frigates and the threat of death countless times, yet none of it compared with the possibility of having Tabby taken from him again.”
M.A. Nichols, A True Gentleman
tags: fear, love

“Anxiety is such a useless sentiment. It does not divert impending disasters nor does it help in preparing for them. And it is by no means an accurate portent of doom for more often than not, it signifies nothing. Anxiety simply stretches out the torment so that one feels it long before the pain strikes and ensures that if those fears prove unfounded, the afflicted person suffers nonetheless.”
M.A. Nichols, The Shameless Flirt

“That is the nature of falsehoods. Like a small debt incurred, the interest builds, and when collection is due, the burden is much greater than the original lie was worth.”
M.A. Nichols, The Jack of All Trades

“I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.”
C.S. Lewis

“Think books aren't scary? Well, think about this: You can't spell "Book" without "Boo!”
Stephen Colbert, I Am America

“Things usually work out in the end."
"What if they don't?"
"That just means you haven't come to the end yet.”
Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle
