She loves to travel, and has lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe and North America, and traveled overland in the Middle East, China, and North Africa. Her varied career includes stints as a field assistant in Antarctica and a waitress on the Isle of Skye.

You know, I’ve never thought about it before. I think … I like a mixture of both. Usually I write about people who don’t know each other falling in love, but sometimes I want to write about characters with a shared history. I really enjoyed writing My Lady Thief. It was fun to tip all Adam and Arabella’s prejudices upside down and watch them learn to see each other through new eyes.(less)

I'm starting a new Baleful Godmother series set in Regency England featuring a family of aristocratic cousins (the Garlands), plus there's another set of cousins who'll get their own series. The first books should be out in 2018.
I'm so glad you're enjoying the series. I can't believe you read them all in a week! (less)

Ruining Miss Wrotham has won another award!

I woke up this morning to discover that Ruining Miss Wrotham won the Long Romance of the Year award at the Romance Writers of Australia conference last night!

It's just as well I've finally figured out how to do gifs, because this is the perfect time for a happy dance!
