Welcome to My Blog!

This is the first time I have attempted to blog but I wanted to introduce everyone to Dominic and Sophie the young couple whose delightful courtship you will read about in my upcoming novel 'Dominic' that is due for release with Wings ePress in August 2007. It cannot be described as a conventional courtship but, nonetheless, it is one that I hope will capture your imagination.

Dominic Blake, Earl of Vale, is a young man of privilege and breeding whose world is turned upside-down by Jack, a beautiful young girl in boy's clothing whom he finds sheltering on his doorstep after fleeing an attack by her brother.

As an author, I found this a very easy book to write as Dominic just strode onto the pages and took charge. In fact, the book almost wrote itself. I live in the UK but almost half of this story was written whilst we were on vacation in Florida. It was hurricane season, the trees outside our hotel window were horizontal, my husband snored and I wrote. I have just completed the final edits with my publisher and I am eagerly awaiting the publication date. Please drop by my website

Have been browsing your site and find it very interesting.

My favorite genre is historical and each of your books sound very good.

DH and I have been married since 1966, have 3 sons and 4 grandchildren.

Have a GREAT DAY and I hope Lucy continues to do well.

Hazel, I love the historical pictures you have up! I too love to look at them. I think I love the regencies so much because of the culture, clothing, rules, and so much more. Its so fastinating!

I'm up on the East up North in US, so we get the blizzards (snow) here in the winters. So I read alot more in the winter as your writing did during the hurricane!

This and too the other books sounds wonderful!

Thank you for your very kind comments Ruth and Caffey. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply but we were on vacation.

I too love reading historicals. Have you seen the two free stories on my website?

Lucy is here by my side, asleep and snoring. She is still doing brilliantly well and so far, the prognosis is still good.

Take care,
