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
