Although I've written four contemporary romances under the name Jane Blackwood, my first love is historical romances set in Victorian times. I've written 17 of those with more on the way.
I have three kids, one a college grad, one in college, and one still in high school (who's a fantastic writer). I love the Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I work full time, have an editing business, and in my free time write like a fanatic.
Above the desk in my office is this sign: "And They All Lived Happily Ever After." It may not be reality, but it's

I wrote that book a long time ago and I remember that the heroine was my total focus. Great question, though! And thank you for the very nice compliment. (less)

“Dorothea sniffed and looked around the room, her distaste clear. “Try to be polite, Mother,” Marjorie said. “I am always polite.” “Then try to be nice.”
Jane Goodger, The Spinster Bride

“He wanted a wife, but this chase, this dance one had to do to get a wife, was downright wearying. Perhaps that’s why he’d been such a failure at finding a bride. He wanted it to be easy. To meet a girl, point a finger and say, “You’re the one.” And she would, of course, swoon as she said, “Yes, I’ll marry you.” Wasn’t that the way it’d been done in years past? Arranged marriages were so much more practical.”
Jane Goodger, The Spinster Bride

“Just because I want to bury my face between your breasts and stay there for a fortnight doesn't mean I want to marry you.”
Jane Goodger, The Spinster Bride

“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.”
Robert F. Kennedy
