Hi everyone. Thanks so much for reading my books. Here's some key info about me...

Deanne Wilsted lives in Seattle WA, but dreams one day of retiring to Italy. Until then you’ll find her writing her fourth novel, perfecting her pasta making, and receiving helpful feedback on both from her twelve year old daughter, her husband, and her dog (she usually goes with the dog’s advice.) Her books, MOLTO MAYHEM, BETTING JESSICA and UNTANGLING THE KNOT are on

- Check out my website for blog posts about what I over hear while writing, recipes from MOLTO MAYHEM and links to Authorgraph for my digital signature:

For my new project, though, my research actually takes me out of the country, to England where the story is set. It is a battle between Harry Potter vs Jane Austen tourist sites, so I am exploring many of the movie locations for the Harry Potter films as well as Jane Austen's homes in Bath (I actually get to stay in it here) and in Steventon/Alton. I also will be visiting Lyme Park, the location for the Colin Firth scene in Pride and Prejudice where he swims in the lake and walks toward his manor in the wet shirt;>)

Because the book is based on a mother daughter relationship (and thus the competing itineraries) I am including my own 10 year old daughter in my travels. We will both be blogging about our trip and our own thoughts about Harry Potter vs Jane Austen. You can find my posts here on Goodreads, or on my website:

A Layman's Explanation of the War on our Democracy

Picture Many of you have asked over the last few years what I am writing... or whether I have been writing at all. I have answered, honestly, that I didn't feel like my words were important... that I needed to spend some time listening and learning. The full truth is that five years ago I was shocked to see that our democracy seemed to be crumbling in front of us. I couldn't understand how this could hap Read more of this blog post »

“As it has been said:
Love and a cough
cannot be concealed.
Even a small cough.
Even a small love.”

Cynthia Hand
“I’ve learned that a storm isn’t always just bad weather, and a fire can be the start of something. I’ve found out that there are a lot more shades of gray in this world than I ever knew about. I’ve learned that sometimes, when you´re afraid but you keep on moving forward, that’s the biggest kind of courage there is. And finally, I’ve learned that life isn’t really about failure and success. It’s about being present, in the moment when big things happen, when everything changes, including yourself.”
Cynthia Hand, Hallowed
