No, it is my real name. Yes, it is a great name for someone who writes romance novels. I can’t, of course, claim any credit for it at all.

Welcome to my blog. I hope you’ll enjoy what you find here.

I write historical romances set in the fourteenth century and in the Regency period and I want them to depict those worlds as accurately as possible. That means doing research, which I love. It seems a shame to keep all the interesting things I find out to myself, though. A very small proportion of it makes its way into my novels. The rest of it I’m sharing with you.

I post every Sunday and I hope you’ll join me as often as you can.

  4. Uh oh, typo! Sorry. I meant “paid,” of course, not “apid.” I have a bad habit of forgetting to proofread before hitting Send. 😦

    Hi April good to see what you are up to! Very impressed with your blog and list of books. Wil definitely order some. I am working in a secondary school library now. Do you think these will be suitable for the students???

    • Hi Sarat, thank you for visiting. I shouldn’t think the books would be terribly suitable for under-16s. Although far from graphic, most of them contain scenes of sex and/or violence.

      Today is the second anniversary of my retirement:-)
