What You Wish For by Saskia Walker
Lucy Chambers loves life in her historic house on the rugged Cornish coast. In fact, the only thing that would make her life better is if the sexy man who walked through her dreams every night was real. Under the watchful eye of the local white witch, Lucy is about to find out about the power of wishes and the vagaries of time. When she is sent two centuries into the past, she meets Cullen Thaine, the strong, mysterious man who'd also made a wish, a wish to spend one last night with an English wench before leaving for the colonies to pay a debt of honour. When Cullen confesses he longs to stay in his beloved Cornwall, will Lucy be able to make all their dreams come true?

I live and work in the north of England, close to the beautiful Yorkshire moors. Here in the windswept landscape made famous by the Bronte sisters, I write fiction across several genres: fantasy, erotic romance and erotica. British by birth, I have traveled extensively and I believe that visiting exotic countries contributed greatly to my desire to write, that and an extremely vivid and active imagination!
I first started writing a rather madcap historical romance when I was twelve years old. The heroine was called Miranda and she was much more like Modesty Blaise than a blushing debutante. At the time I was consuming a literary diet as diverse as Barbara Cartland and Ian Fleming, and reading a book a day. What a combination! But that might begin to explain the rather reckless, adventurous heroines that I write about these days...
I have an academic background, with a BA in Art History and a Masters degree in Literature and the visual arts. Creative writing has become more important as time has passed, drawing me away from all manner of diverse careers. I have worked as a gallery assistant, an academic librarian, a university administrator, a liaison officer for overseas students studying in the UK, an online tutor for Learn Direct and I coordinated a voluntary befriending scheme for children in care. I began writing in earnest in '96 and was published in the small press under the guidance of the leading British fantasy writer, Storm Constantine. From there I began to write for Virgin publishing's Black Lace imprint and now, several publications later, I spend most of my writing time on longer projects, punctuated with the occasional short story.
My real life hero, Mark, supports my work through all its ups and downs, and runs the tech side of my website. Together with the big black cat who watches over while I write, Mark somehow manages to keep me sane and grounded when fiction threatens to take over!
