Welcome to My World of Historical Hilarity!

I'm Linda Banche, and I write witty, sweet/sensual Regency romantic comedy with nary a rake or royal in sight. Some might also contain fantasy, paranormal or science fiction. But comedy is my love, and I've created my own wacky blend of humor and Regency with stories that can elicit reactions from a gentle smile to a belly laugh.

Like many other romance authors, I read romances for years before I wrote my own. Once I tried, I quickly discovered how difficult writing is. Did I stop? No, I'm persistent--that's French for "too stupid to quit".

I'm a two-time EPICON finalist, I live in New England and I like aerobics and ducks. So, laugh along with me on a voyage back to the Regency era. Me and my ducks.

Ten Year Anniversary of LADY OF THE STARS

Ten years ago today, on January 7, 2009, the Wild Rose Press published my first book, Lady of the Stars.

Since then, I've had the rights reverted to me. I rewrote and expanded the story, bought a new cover, and republished the story myself in 2016.

Here's to ten years of Lady of the Stars, my Regency time travel romance.

Thank you, all,
