I write historical romances set in the fourteenth century and in the Regency period.
I started telling stories as a child to keep my little sister entertained. They were long and involved and never came to an end, but she never complained. Later I started writing stories down. They were inspired by books I’d read or things I’d seen on TV. This continued on and off during my adult life, but it wasn’t until I was working away from home and staying in a bed and breakfast during the week that I finally knuckled down to writing a complete novel. Then I wrote another one and then another. This was the one that I let someone else read – eight years after I started it. It doesn’t take eight years to write a novel anymore and I’m not so shy about letting other people read what I write. My sister is still the first person to read the story, though, and she still doesn’t complain.
You might be expecting this to be a blog about writing, but it’s not. It’s mostly about interesting things that I’ve discovered in my research or that I see around me that relate to the Middle Ages or to the Regency period. There will be the odd book or DVD review. I enjoy research and read a lot of books about the periods in which my stories are set.
I shall be posting every Sunday and I hope you’ll join me as often as you can.
