Re: Masquerade (9:08am July 15, 2013):

@Barbara: Hi, Barbara, and thanks you for your comments!

@Mary: Hi, Mary! I've never read Vanity Fair, but I've heard about bad girl Rebecca Sharp!

@Sarah: Hi, Sarah, thanks for stopping by:). Bad girls always add spice to a novel, don't they?

@Laura: Hi, Laura, I know what you mean! It's a shame that people really do exist that act like those bad characters. When they end up on the six o'clock news, I always wonder how they thought they could get away with such despicable stuff!

Re: Masquerade (2:13pm July 14, 2013):

@Pam: Hi, Pam! I agree--Scarlett is the best bad girl written to date. No obstacles could ever hold her back!

@Denise: Hi, Denise! All bad girls are fun to read about--and fun to hate;).

Re: Masquerade (7:10am July 14, 2013):

@Alyson: Well said, Alyson! They have such nerve and it's fun to see how they do things we'd never think about doing!

@Peggy: Hi, Peggy, thanks for your kind words! So glad you stopped by even being tired after all your housework:).

@Nicole: Thank you, Nicole! I hope you enjoy it:).

@Kathleen: Hi, Kathleen! I've never watched Two and Half Men, but I'll have to check it out to see Evelyn Harper in action:). I must admit, bad girls are fun to write--I also think lots of actresses would rather play a bad girl role than a nice one;).

Re: Masquerade (8:29pm July 13, 2013):

@Kai: Hi, Kai! Scarlett definitely made the most of her situations. When life gave her lemons, she made lemonade--big time;).

Re: Masquerade (6:40pm July 13, 2013):

@Susan Coster: Hi, Susan! So glad Lavinia has you hooked:). I hope you enjoy her story!

@Susan Mahaffey: Hi, Susan, thank you! I hope it's fun read for you:).

Re: Masquerade (6:36pm July 13, 2013):

Hello, L.Lam, I wasn't familiar with Nix and had to do a little research on her. A soothsayer gone mad--what a juicy character!

Re: Masquerade (2:48pm July 13, 2013):

Hi, Sue! Yes, Undine was driven, indeed. Perhaps driven is an understatement;).

Re: Masquerade (1:53pm July 13, 2013):

A huge thank you to Fresh Fiction for hosting me today! Hi, Xoun, you've made a good point! It's great to see a bag girl redeem herself.

Re: Escape (8:04pm October 23, 2012):

Re: Escape (11:13am October 22, 2012):

@Susie: Thanks!

@Clare: That's very interesting, Clare! Thanks for sharing. It's fascinating to see how other cultures react to race issues.

Re: Escape (8:56pm October 21, 2012):

@Debbi: You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by:).

@Kent: Thanks!

@Marjorie: I agree--we've come a long way;).

@Mary Anne: Thanks for your good wishes, and you are so right! We must never take for granted the rights and freedoms we have today!

@Donna: LOL! I'd say most writers are daydreamers with active imaginations:).

@Vicki: Thank you!

@Kai: Thank you! I love those stories too!

@Alyson: That's amazing! Genalogy is a hot topic today. Seems like more and more people are researching their roots!

@Kathleen: Thank you! There's so much more I'd like to know about the ancestry on both sides of my family.

@Connie: I think it's romantic :). But I refer to it as historical fiction with romantic elements since there's some sadness in the story.

@Shelly: Thanks, Shelly! Good luck:).

@Susan: Thank you:)!

@Sue: I enjoy family sagas too! The series possibilities are endless.

@Phyllis: I'm a history lover too! Researching the trilogy was a lot of fun:).

@Leslie: You're welcome, and thank you!
