The Thorns of Success by Harmony Williams

on November 23, 2020

In July 2020, in the midst of a pandemic, I wrote the first drafts of three books back to back. It was the first time since I’d lost the function of my wrists that I’d been able to accomplish a feat of that magnitude. It felt incredible. The obsession with my books, always thinking about… Read More

Okay, I admit it. I listen to holiday music. Not just during the holidays.

on November 20, 2020

It’s that time of year again, when holiday music is ubiquitous everywhere, and we haven’t even had Thanksgiving in the states! On the radio, in the shopping centers, at the grocery store… Some people love it. Some loathe it! Some can handle it in short doses but come January, off it goes! I have to… Read More

Do You Believe in Curses?

on October 20, 2020

What gives you the heebie jeebies? Humans are amazing creatures in so many ways. We imagine futures, remember and ruminate over the past, and create dramas that may or may not be going on around us. The human mind can come up with both fantastic and horror-filled ideas. This is why things like scary stories… Read More

When Inspiration Calls At an Ungodly Hour

on September 28, 2020

by Allison B. Hanson Ask many authors when they knew they wanted to write books, and you’ll often hear how they knew since they were children, or wrote their first book in third grade. I, however, do not have that story. My muse woke me around four a.m. on November 20th, 2009 and wouldn’t let… Read More

Visiting Scotland’s Outposts

on September 24, 2020

Recently a friend and I planned a trip with Scottish guide James Campbell that would allow us to get away from the popular tourist destinations—Edinburgh, Urquhart, Stirling Castles—and see remote parts of Scotland. After arriving at the Edinburgh airport (where Customs/Immigration is the easiest I’ve ever experienced…you simply put your passport on a screen, wait… Read More

Revolutionary Reflections

on August 26, 2020

Travel feels like something that’s so out of reach these days. While spending most of my time at home the past few months, one thing that has helped to get me through each day is reflecting on my trip to Paris. Over two weeks, I trekked through as many sites and museums as my legs… Read More

Nicola Davidson

Nicola Davidson

New Zealander Nicola Davidson always adored words, romance and history, so writing historical romance was a logical career progression...er, eventually. After completing a communications degree and journalism diploma she left to teach English in Taiwan and travel through Asia before returning home to work in television. Jobs in tertiary education, local government communications and print media followed, but the lords and ladies in her head wouldn't hold their peace a moment longer and so began the years of professional daydreaming. When not chained to a computer writing wickedly sexy, witty and twisty turny stories, Nicola can be found ambling along a beach, cheering on the champion All Blacks rugby team or driving her nearest and dearest batty with her history geekisms, chocolate hoarding and complete lack of domestic skills.

Evangeline Jones and the Real Life Spiritualists Who Inspired Her

on April 29, 2020

Victorian London was a tough environment for a woman, especially if she didn’t have the safety net of a good family and enough money to put food on the table. We readers of historical romance know that, without those things, there were few options for lone, penniless women. Marriage and motherhood or, less ideally, life… Read More
