The heroine of my romantic time-travel novels passes herself off as being in her mid-thirties whenever she journeys into the past. Because she travels from one hundred years in the future to centuries in the past, she has the benefit of all the modern treatments that make one look impossibly young. Therefore, no one she encounters in the past guesses that she's more of an age...well let's just say, my age. Lucky her, she never suffers from hot-flashes, they will have…Continue

In the 1950s one couldn't buy a copy of Lady Chatterley's Lover in the UK. In the 1920s if one wanted a copy of The Well of Loneliness you had to go to Paris to buy it. Censorship in the UK laid down very strict rules on what was and was not suitable matter for publication. Those days are over, thank goodness. Authors in all genres can explore subjects that were taboo only a few years ago and the body of literature is much richer for that freedom.
Nobody wants to return to those…

Anyway, I am up and running now and looking forward to…Continue

Can't believe I did it, but I hit the best-seller list at Amazon and reached the top twenty on Friday night. Whoa... Sales of my newbie Regency Romance & Murder Mystery soared! Hee hee, going down now: as the bellboy says... But hey, it was good while it lasted and sales are back to ticking along nicely. I really don't get it, because I haven't asked for reviews, have only had but a few on the first novel I posted to Kindle and still I can make it into the top twenty in Amazon's…Continue
