Many people always "want to write a novel" but don't. Sit down and do it. Make mistakes, get critiques, read many, many books for pleasure and for research, find a writers' group, and practice.

When new ideas help the plot, I incorporate them into my manuscript. My story ideas mainly spring from my imagination and experiences, though period music and imagery of historical gowns, architecture, and landscapes also help inspire. (less)

“A laconic and highly entertaining" novel. "The characters are strong, each showing major evidence of being a product of their respective cultures. Overall, the story is a strong one, with a couple of well-executed twists that succeed in surprising the reader."

- Publishers Weekly judge for the 2014 ABNA Contest, Two Brides for Ewan de Buchan


"I love historical romance novels and this one right off the bat based on the plot/hook made me want to read more. I devoured this...and re-read it twice. It seems like the author has a very good handle on the time period in which this novel is set."

- 2014 ABNA Contest judge, Two Brides for Ewan de Buchan


"I think this is really well crafted and interesting. The plot/hook caught me from the first paragraph. The characters are well done and I really loved the novelist's attention to historical detail...It's a really great romance novel, and is of publication quality. This novelist has a real future in writing romance (or even general fiction) books."

“Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.”
Maya Angelou

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
Theodore Parker

“When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them--then the rest will be valuable. They weaken when they are close together. They give strength when they are far apart.”
Mark Twain
