D.C. Williams is a writer who lives in Pennsylvania with one spouse and one child. I LOVE reader interaction. I used to add that I tended to "friend" people who added my books. I've taken that down because at this point I have people adding my books who I really haven't interacted with at all. The first few months I was doing this I had run into most people who added my books somewhere on Goodreads. Since this is no longer really true (and I've long since eased up on the friendvites accordingly) I'm taking this down because I don't want to discourage people who don't enjoy author interaction from reading my books. That said, I enjoy reader interaction as much as ever, and please, feel free to add me!

For the moment, yes, but I have always planned to write at least a couple of more. I think it will be a six or seven story series (which would also be a nice length for a complete volume, which is what I thought might be a good idea when I was done). The hold-up is that the next story that wants to be written is a fairly long chronological jump, and I keep waiting for an interim story to present itself. I actually started one, but it was just going nowhere.

I do have a couple of other Regencies, A Splendid Jape<'/i> and An Avoncaster Christmas but they are not in the same series, and they are a little sunnier than the Foxgroves.(less)

Well, I've always written, and always wanted to be a writer. Why I suddenly got serious about it a couple of years ago is a little more complicated.

I was getting older, and I was starting to feel very much that it was "now or never". I had noticed that publishing had changed and there were more options. I wanted to be traditionally published, but the existence of easy self-publishing as an option gave me a lot more confidence. I was also aware that there was suddenly a market for the kind of stories I wanted to write.

Thank you so much for a great question!(less)

Trump Has Ruined My Retirement Plans

This is very small potatoes, compared to many of the things he has done, but my immediate retirement planning was structured around being able to make a living writing and freelancing and purchasing health insurance through the ACA.


Suddenly, that doesn’t look possible.


I was aware that some of the point of repealing the ACA is so that people can’t do that. So that they can’t easily move jobs, or...

“In June, Deacon noticed a pattern where Thursday was concerned. Woman, fight, brood alone in angry silence, rinse, and repeat”
Mercy Celeste, The 51st Thursday

Mercy Celeste
“Because of that, because my life ended fifty-two Thursdays ago, because...I have nothing left to live for. God damn it, suck me, you asshole. You made me want you, always staring at me like I'm candy or something. Suck me, I want to come in your mouth, you motherfucking..." Deacon lifted him off his body and flipped him onto his back. He landed on the hard floor, out of breath.

"Demanding little foul-mouthed whelp, aren't you? I like that, Thursday. Unbutton your jeans. Slowly. While I watch."

"Fuck you."

"Later, sweetheart. Right now I want to see your cock. Show me your cock, Thursday.”
Mercy Celeste, The 51st Thursday
