Today Iím sharing photos of the best part of being an authorÖ.research. Visiting
the location where a story takes place not only provides firsthand information,
but offers a tax-deductible getaway as well. Several years ago, I had the

HEIRESS. My trip to England allowed me to reconnect with an old Read More...

interesting story in the news that grabs my attention. Sometimes, itís a strange
scenario that has my imagination racing. And sometimes, itís the glint of the
sun off a sign in Read More...

those ones he wore in The Patriot (with Mel Gibson, 2000), that movie
about the Revolutionary War. Maybe I should also blame it on chemo fog (a long
term side effect of chemotherapy treatment, which I underwent in 1999, but
thatís another story thatís been told in other places).
I was still in the midst of Read More...
My name is Noll (heroine of NOBODY'S
GODDESS). Itís actually OliviŤre, but no one calls me that. (If youíve
spent more than a few minutes with me, youíd see why Iím hardly the delicate
little bird deserving of such a ladylike name.) In my village surrounded by
mountains, each man falls in love with only Read More...

Waving hello from New Zealand, where I write Regency historical romances. In my
current Regency series, The Disgraced Lords, several of the
characters, their friends, and siblings, fought at the battle of Waterloo.
As 2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo 18-20th
June 1815, in Belgium, I thought Iíd learn a little bit about the epic battle.
The battle was considered Read More...
What do chance, mistake, and coincidence have to do with romance?

historical romances. Book 1 is LADY BY
CHANCE. Book 2 is DUCHESS BY MISTAKE, and the third installment (not out till

Thanks for having me today! Iím excited to be here and happy to give away a
couple of books too! But before that part, let me tell you about how I started

movies Read More...

There was a huge stir recently when novelist Kazuo Ishiguro published his new
fantasy novel, THE BURIED GIANT. The cause of the controversy had little to
do with the novel itselfóthe world is littered with fantasy novelsóbut was
sparked by the fact that its author is a British writer famous for understated
novels of manners like ďThe Remains of the Day Read More...
No, this isn't a religious essay! It's about how I invented the fictional
town of Heaven, Colorado, the setting for my new book club mystery series
featuring the Readaholics.
I started with my protagonist, Amy-Faye Johnson, who is an event organizer.
I thought about the different events she might be hired to organize (and how
they might go hysterically wrong--but that's a different post). My mind drifted
from corporate events Read More...
