However, I would travel to mid-Georgian England (surprise!). I fell in love with the era before I wrote any books set then. I wrote the books because I fell for the era, not the other way around.(less)

Things are motoring along this month.
I received the edits for the first contemporary romance with Tule, and I did the pulling apart and putting back together thing. That’s often a really interesting exercise, and this time it was instructive, too. Honestly, if I had nothing left to learn about writing, I’d give up. My new editor has given me some fantastic pointers, and I turned my manuscrip... Read more of this blog post »
