When I am stumped, I refuse to lose. Sometimes, "winning" means writing 100 words and taking a break. Then another 100. And so on. Persistence is the key. Keep writing. That's the way to beat it.

And when you have, read what you managed to write in that hard time. You may surprise yourself!(less)

I got the idea for the protagonist - Tuirgeis of Nordweg - while researching for Captive Irish Moon more than ten years ago. Reading that there was a Viking who became High King of Ireland blew me away and I had to investigate!(less)

When the process ebbs and flows...

So I've been working for months, off and on, on the Regency Trilogy.

Some of you would even correctly say that one of the books has been with me for YEARS. It's true.
