Happy endings. Historical research. Put me in massive library with my laptop, and I'm in heaven.

I write historical romance set mainly in Victorian Britain. Currently, I'm focusing on the mid-nineteenth century (the 1850s), a period of social, political, industrial, technological and personal transformation.

In my other life, I'm a community college professor of English literature and composition.

And I have a wonderfully supportive family that occasionally reminds me there's more to life than words.

A walk around the block. Switching from laptop to pen/paper or vice versa. Talking to myself. Jumping to a different part of the story, one that feels more vivid and clear in my mind...I can always go back later!

Really, when it comes to writer's block, I don't have any ideal solutions. And sometimes what works one day just doesn't work the next. So I keep trying different strategies to see what inspires me, and I do my best not to beat myself up about getting stuck.(less)

NECRWA 2017 Follow-up!

*ahem* *looks around* *sweeps away the dust bunnies and cobwebs* So...hi! It's apparently been quite a while since I last said something new. And, well, that's probably because I don't have any new publishing news, per se, but things are going...yes, well, they're going. And I've been busy and have lots of ideas simmering.  And I had the great good fortune of attending this year's New

“We are not animals at the mercy of our instincts. We are rational and spiritual beings, with both the privilege and responsibility of building a society better than the one before us. We can only do that if we know where we are, who we are, how we fit. If we know what goes on around us”-”
Amara Royce, Never Too Late
