A Texas girl, Gianna has been in love with Historical Romance, and especially Regency Romance for many years. But it wasn’t until 2013 that she started writing in this genre.
Gianna discovered Pride and Prejudice, and its many variations, what ifs and fan fiction. She was totally fascinated by the variety of plots that eager authors had utilized. After reading several of these fascinating books, she realized why others loved them and Jane Austen’s books so well.

Gianna was aware of the story line of Pride and Prejudice after reading it many years ago and seeing the 1940’s movie as well as the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen. She loved the 2005 movie and the musical score. Yes, the movie wasn’t 100% accurate, but isn’

I am not your usual writer. Much of my plots are done in my head before making it to paper. Also, my inspiration comes in fits and spurts, so I may have several scenes I've worked out that need to have the dots connected. I find that I do have to immediately write what comes to mind or it's lost forever. That means that sometimes I get up in the middle of the night to get a scene on paper. (less)

I tend to be rather logical in much of my life being right handed, however, both sides of the brain need to be exercised. Just as both sides of the body are exercised for balance and health, both sides of the brain need to be exercised as well: the creative right side and the logical left side. Writing allows me to do this very well.

I also like to entertain people by sharing things that I love. Writing Regency romance is kind of the icing on the cake as there are few things better than spending a lazy afternoon reading about the dukes and the earls and their lovely ladies. The Regency era is a fascinating one with the ton and the various rules of propriety—there for a reason, but also a pain in the backside as well.(less)
