I am the author of the Josephine B. Trilogy, internationally best-selling novels about Napoleon’s wife, now published in seventeen countries.
My most recent novel, Mistress of the Sun, also published internationally, is set in mid-17th century France at the court of the Sun King.
In the spring of 2012, I will be publishing another novel set in this court, and, after that, I will be writing a Young Adult novel (or two) about Josephine’s daughter Hortense.
I am a wife, mother of two adults, grandmother (yay!).
My husband and I live half the year in rural Ontario, Canada, and the other half in urban (well, it’s a village) San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico.
In reality, however, I’m either in 17th-18th century France or on the Net, usually both.

I’m getting ready to pack up my winter office in Mexico and return to Canada. This entails going through piles of papers, journals stacked up, bills. Instead of attending to that last stack, I’m quickly posting here from a page I tore off from Bookmarks Magazine (Nov/Dec 2011: note the year!),…
My father died recently, my mother many years before. I was with my mother when she died, and with my father in his last hours. My mother had the good fortune to die at home, under Hospice care. My sister Robin and her partner Betsy came prepared with a bag…
