With a show of hands, how many of you felt like an outsider growing up? I
suspect most hands are waving in the air right now, and if youíre reading this,
youíre probably a bookworm like me, someone who hides in plain sight, escaping
into books, written worlds that never judge us. It took me a long time to
understand most people feel as if theyíre ďoutside, looking in.Ē I suspect it Read More...
Thatís right, Iím the little blond lady whoís scrunched in the corner of the
coffee shop. Iím watching you carefully and jotting notes. I see what youíre
wearing Ė I like that paisley scarf, by the way Ė and Iím scrutinizing the way
you sip your coffee and nibble your scone.
No, I donít work for the CIA, FBI, or IRS. Iím an author who writes three
different mystery Read More...
Iím not much of a jewelry person. I wear my wedding and engagement rings and
when I go out, a pair of dangly earrings if I remember to put them on. I have
one of those Pandora bracelets but it was taking so long to get the charms that
I went down to the dollar store and bought a bunch of replicas to fill it up.
Again, I forget to wear it most times Read More...

I get the sense Iím in an AA or NA meeting every time someone says: Oh, youíre a
writer! What do you write?
Hello, Iím USA Today Bestselling author, Christina McKnight, and I
write historical romance. Narrow that down a bit, I write Regency Romance. What
follows is usually wide-eyed stares that evolve into scrunched brows as people
ponder what in the heck I just said. I normally go Read More...
Marriage. Commitment. Forever. These words go hand in hand when you think about
weddings and they conjure up images of white dresses, tuxedos, friends, family,
beautiful locations, nit-picked details and, of course, heightened emotions.
And Iím not just talking about the wedding party.
Having been to my fair share of weddings as part of the party and as a guest I
can say that without a doubt that there is all kinds of Read More...
