I taught 19th century English literature for many years so when I decided to begin writing,this was the period that attracted me most. It’s been thoroughly enjoyable, particularly doing the research needed to portray settings as authentically as possible.
In the last two years I’ve published three Regency romances with Harlequin. They were great fun to write. Recently, though, I’ve spread my wings a little with Walking Through Glass, a mystery romance which tells parallel stories set in two time periods: contemporary London and the London of 1851, the year of the Great Exhibition.
Next up is a novel set in India during the late 1930s, at a time when the Raj was under severe pressure. Some great reading in store!
