Teaser Tuesday

Three more weeks until The English Wife arrives in stores! Last week, as I worked on the edits for my part of the next WWW book, I was rustling around in my photo files looking for some Lusitania pictures when I stumbled across my picture archive for The English Wife. So, just for fun, here’s…

Teaser Tuesday: Work in Progress

I’m in the final stretch of the currently untitled next stand alone novel– which is why things have been so quiet here on the website. But, to break up the wait, here’s a small outtake from the work in progress. As you may have noticed, my characters tend to talk. A lot. I absolutely hate…

Teaser Tuesday: the Work in Progress

Here’s a little sneak snippet from the work in progress– one you’re not going to see in the finished book. One of my biggest problems as a writer is when to make my characters stop talking. They do go on. And on and on. And the on and on flows so naturally that I have…

How to describe Simon? He’s the scion of an old and proud family, but his upbringing has been anything but…

Teaser Tuesday: Rachel Woodley

The Other Daughter comes out a month from today! Yesterday, as part of an interview, I was asked to provide a quotation with a physical description of my heroine. Simple enough, you say. But it wasn’t. Because Rachel Woodley, my heroine, goes through a number of metamorphoses over the course of the book. Here’s Rachel…
