I discovered Georgette Heyer when I was thirteen, and wrote my first historical romance a few years later. My writing has improved since then, but my fascination with all things Regency hasn't changed. When not reading, writing, or researching, I enjoy cooking and marathoning old TV shows. I live in Seattle with my best friend.

I am indeed planning books for Rafe and James, although I think not for a few years yet (James needs a few years to grow up, and I need to do more research for Rafe). I've got a post up at my blog with a few more details (most of the details I know myself, honestly!) about those books and about further plans for the series, if you're interested:

Thanks for your question! I'm so glad you like my books. <3(less)

I certainly plan to keep writing and (unlike 5 months ago) my other books are all available, so hopefully you can find more stories by me you like. <3 If you want to follow my writing process a little more closely and learn some historical tidbits on the way, I send out a weekly Spoiler Wednesday email where I share something each week about a book I'm working on, usually including research.

“Love wasn’t selfless, and it wasn’t selfish either. Love was equality. It was saying that another person’s self was just as important as yours, and expecting them to feel the same way.”
Rose Lerner, Sweet Disorder

“It’s the worst sort of snobbery to condemn a book without reading it, merely because it’s popular.”
Rose Lerner, Sweet Disorder

“People liked to imagine their feelings were obvious, that their emotions were written all over their face. But generally, no one looked carefully enough to notice anything, or knew you well enough to understand what they noticed.”
Rose Lerner, True Pretenses

“I comfort myself with the reflection that your wife will possibly be able to curb your desire--I admit, a natural one for the most part--to exterminate your fellows.”
Georgette Heyer, Devil's Cub

“Many a law, many a commandment have I broken, but my word never.”
Walter Scott

“Love's mysteries in souls do grow,
But yet the body is his book.”
John Donne, The Complete English Poems

“She suddenly saw Wimsey in a new light. She knew him to be intelligent, clean, courteous, wealthy, well-read, amusing and enamored, but he had not so far produced in her that crushing sense of inferiority which leads to prostration and hero-worship. But she now realized that there was, after all, something godlike about him. He could control a horse.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Have His Carcase

“He had never been interested in stories at any age, and had never quite understood the basic concept. He'd never read a work of fiction all the way through. He did remember, as a small boy, being really annoyed at the depiction of Hickory Dickory Dock in a rag book of nursery rhymes because the clock in the drawing was completely wrong for the period.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
