Historical romance is the genre I go to for dreamy courtships, sweeping passion and perilous plots, not to mention exquisite fashions, luxurious settings and graceful manners, as well as exciting–and sometimes real–characters. And oh, those sumptuous feasts! Let’s face it. Historical romance has (insert extravagant adjective of your choice) everything!

I love writing books set in interesting historical periods. One of my two Works In Progress for adults is The Earl’s Brilliant Scandal. It’s a very-late Georgian era romance, the first book in The SILK Series, which will continue into the Regency era. AND… IT’S A WINNER! in Dragonblade Publishing‘s The Write Stuff contest.

The prize inludes a place in an upcoming anthology. Sometime in early August, I’ll find out details of the story they want. Soooooo exciting!

This same book also placed in another contest, so I have great hopes for it and the SILK series.

My other adult WIP is a late Victorian fantasy romance, the first book in a series of four. That title is Enshadowed. It’s also been a finalist in writing contests and I’m trying to accomplish the changes that will make it a winner, too.

While I wait, I’ll keep on writing and editing,

In addition, I’m refreshing the cover and some extra content for my five-star Middle Grade historical fantasy, Celia and the Wolf, and looking forward to a sales push for this Halloween.
