Writing PNR Can Be So Freeing – And Totally Restrictive

on June 17, 2020

I’ve been writing forever, or at least it seems that way. I wrote my first book when I was nine years old. I called it Dimples the Adventurous Flea. Basically, it was about a flea that jumps from dog to dog to ‘see the world’. When he’s on a French poodle, he’s in Paris. An… Read More

A Pinch of True History and A Guaranteed Happily-Ever-After

on May 1, 2020

I love history, especially British history, which is why I write historical romance. While most accurate accounts of the past do not include happy endings with wars, murders, famine, and plagues, a happy ending is essential in the romance genre. Therefore, Scottish historical romance is the perfect place for me to immerse myself. When I… Read More

on February 12, 2020

I remember the first time I encountered the phrase Carpe Diem, or for those non-Latin speaking folks, Seize the Day, was way back in and around 1989 when the movie Dead Poets Society hit the big screen. I was, well, a lot younger back then, still playing with my Barbies and Polly Pocket, still dreaming… Read More

Taking Chances

on November 18, 2019

From an early age, I’ve always loved to write. I’d scribble stories when I was little kid, writing on anything that I could get my hands on. In high school, I wrote my first novel. I hand wrote on 500 pages of notebook paper (front and back!) because in my greenness, 500 pages seemed like… Read More

How a book is born, or where I got my idea for my very first Christmas romance

on October 17, 2019

People often want to know where writers get their ideas, and in interviews authors reveal how they people-watch or listen in on conversations and then what if- questions start bubbling in their brains. For me, it often starts with a single scene I imagine clearly. Out of the blue really. The image of a lady… Read More
