New cover art!

by on Jan.13, 2014, under Author news, Bookshelf

Here’s a sneak peek at the cover of my upcoming regency romance, An Heir of Uncertainty. I think it captures the suspenseful, gothic feel of the romance.

Cover of An Heir of Uncertainty

The cover of An Heir of Uncertainty features the widowed heroine, Lina, Countess of Radbourne.


An Heir of Uncertainty will be relased on March 10. You can pre-order the book here.

My first stab at regency millinery

regency poke bonnet

My finished red velvet poke bonnet — though I’ll probably re-trim it, since I’m not entirely happy with the ribbon.

Today I’m at Romancing the Past, blogging about the regency bonnet-making workshop I attended this month, taught by expert milliner Lydia Fast. I learned an enormous amount, including the surprising amount of time and materials that go into a typical regency bonnet.

Leeds Castle by Ian Wilson

Since it’s the Halloween season, today at Romancing the Past I’m blogging about a particularly spooky kind of ghost: the kind that makes an appearance just before someone is about to die. In this case, I’m sticking to ghosts that haunt castles. Stop by for a brush with the eerie!

“Dear Author” reviews ATWT

by on Sep.23, 2013, under Reviews

Last year, Jennie of Dear Author reviewed A Tryst With Trouble, and today, Willaful has posted a new Dear Author review of the book. She writes that it “didn’t feel bloated or cutesy to me, as so many wallpaper Regencies do, and it just generally had a freshness that appealed to my jaded romance palate.” She gives the book a B-, which I’ll happily take from Dear Author any day!
