There's nothing more motivating to create than someone writing a positive review or sending a positive fan letter. I write stories primarily for me. I write the stories that I'd like to read. That others enjoy my stories is just...incredible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.(less)

Make a schedule to sit down at the keyboard and write. The more you write, the better you get. Even after you're published, you keep on improving. So write, write, write.

I wish I had been more disciplined in my approach to writing before I was published. Everything else seemed to be a priority. A contract deadline changes all that. It would have been easier if I had accustomed myself to a disciplined writing schedule - and it would have been easier if I had a large inventory of unsold stories that I could have pulled out and fixed up (grin). Oh well...(less)

Hi all –


Last month I re-released The Education of Mrs. Brimley.  It’s the same book that Berkley released back in 2007 but with a new cover and blurb.


Seduction of a Duke final for Barnes and NobleThis month I’m re-releasing Seduction of a Duke.  This is basically the same book that Berkley released back in 2009 but I did make some changes–not to the story, but to the editing.  I couldn’t believe that some of the words in that original rele...

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a conniving murdering governess determined to win back the family estate she'd been promised. The author 's voice is superb. And while I didn't follow all the references to the Pudjab an

Loved this Book!!

What a perfect premise. A woman named Low Down wins a husband as a reward for nursing a miner's camp through smallpox. The only bad thing in the book- I didn't want the story to end. I wanted to see the characters seven months later.

Good Read but not my genre

I don't read a lot of thrillers but this one sounded interesting. It's obvious early on that there's two murderers, but only one is revealed by book's end (and that reveal was a surprise to me :) ). But there were big issues

The Education of Mrs. Brimley by Donna MacMeans
" This was such a fun story!

What I like about Donna MacMeans stories is her ability to put you in the time period she's writing. She never preaches but you do learn to see the time period accurately and especially with this story and what women di..." Read more of this review »

“William: My brother has an appreciation of art, so I imagine the woman he chooses must be beautiful beyond the pale. Once he outgrows his current predilection with painting and accepts his family responsibilities, he'll need a wife who can move throughout society. She must have proper carriage and be a witty conversationalist. She should have excellent bloodlines as well, in the event of offspring.
Emma: With the possible exception of a witty conversationalist, I believe you've described all the attributes of a racehorse.”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley

“Nicholas: I know you, brother. You've been threatened with matrimonial pursuits before. Why are you really here?
William: I received an invitation.
Nicholas: Not from me you didn't.
William: Of course not from you, brother. Parliament would go up in flames before I receive a social invitation from you. ”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley

“(Nicholas)"Am I dead?"
An odd question, but then she rememberd her mourning attire. "No sir, you are not."
He relaxed a moment, then turned his head slightly as if searching for other passengers. His brows dived in a scowl.
Am I married?"
She wasn't sure how to answer. His kid gloves hid any evidence of his matrimonial state, but his expression of instantaneous alarm and regret suggested he was referring specifically to her.
No sir, we are not.”
Donna MacMeans, The Education of Mrs. Brimley
