Fight Scenes That Make Your Heart Race

on December 11, 2018

Any novel requires a fair bit of research regardless of its genre. I write historical romance which, to do well, entails an inordinate amount of research, which I love. I also like action and adventure woven in with steamy romance and, with it, may come a myriad of fight scenes. Almost three years ago, I… Read More

Amy Jarecki

Amy embarked on her writing journey shortly after she completed an MBA with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her first manuscripts were suspense novels and were never published. She calls them baptism by fire---lessons in learning to write fiction. These lessons, combined with several writing conferences and classes, led her to write her first published book, Boy Man Chief, which won the League of Utah Writers award for Best Manuscript, and the Spark Book Award.

A lot has happened since, with some of the highlights being Rise of a Legend winning the national RONE award for Best Time Travel; hitting the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list; and a host of other accolades.

Amy enjoys the freedom of authorship and the opportunity to work creatively every day. She has lived in Australia, Bermuda and has spent extensive time in Scotland. Whenever possible, she visits the places she writes about to add vibrant realism to her stories.

She loves writing Scottish historical romance, and now she's adding romantic suspense to the mix. Come along for the ride!

What I Never Told My Editor

on November 14, 2018

Lyn Cote here-I’m usually a forth-coming person, honest and frank, but some words are hard to say. And over a decade ago when I signed a contract for a new four-book historical inspirational series, I was told that the publisher had already chosen the title for the series. Okay–it was fine. I got busy and… Read More

My Inspiration – London & Rome

on November 9, 2018

Recently, my daughter and I took a trip to London, with a few days in Rome. I wanted to see all the places in London that I’d been writing about for years. The three-day side trip to Rome was a last minute decision, but a very good one. Of course I knew London was a… Read More

Did History Class Bore You?

on October 15, 2018

Lyn Cote here-History class often left out the “stuff” I find fascinating. How did events affect the people living then? History is just the story of life. I always end every historical with a Historical Note that tells the reader what was true history and what I made up within the real history. Here’s the… Read More

Are You Still Writing?

on June 14, 2018

–Lyn Cote This is a question I get fairly often from people I don’t know very well. I say, “Yes, that’s my job.” Then people ask, “How many books have you written?” And they act surprised when I reply, “Nearly 50.” I mean I’ve been writing for many years–at least two books a year–they accumulate–like… Read More

FALLING A LITTLE BIT IN LOVE

on June 5, 2018

by Alexis Morgan I love the sense of anticipation that happens every time I pick up a new romance to read or sit down at my computer to begin a new story. Yes, part of that is knowing I’m setting off on a new adventure, but what really draws me to reading and writing romances… Read More

on May 22, 2018

My story is about a woman who wants a home and a family. Because, while Warriors of Seneca includes science fiction and fantasy concepts and while I placed Romans and Vikings into the same universe (because it’s fun), and while there are some intense scenes of battle in the tale, at the center of this… Read More
