There's a discussion happening on my Facebook page at the moment, about romantic suspense heroes--how many of them are uniforms, or ex-uniforms (military, police, etc). What's your opinion? Have you come across a romantic suspense hero who didn't have enforcement training of some type, who did carry the story convincingly? Talk about it on the Facebook page, here.
Unlike most of the heroes in Romanceland, Daniel, the hero of Degree of Solitude, is a scarred "monster" that hides away in the wilds of Wales. When I explained his general appearance to Dar Albert, the cover artist who designs nearly all my covers, I knew it would be a challenge to make him both hideous
I enjoy writing all my books, of course, but this one in particular made me look forward to getting up in the morning and heading for my desk. Although it was a logistical nightmare to plot and write! Now we're getting further into the saga, many of the characters you've heard of before are starting
I honestly didn't think I'd manage to pull this off. A few weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that November 11 this year is the one hundredth anniversary of Armistice Day -- known as Remembrance Day by many western countries. As a history nut, I was appalled I had nearly missed this significant
Way back when mapmakers were first starting to document the shape of the world, when they reached an area on the map that wasn’t known, they frequently put comments like “here be dragons.” As most of the books in the Once and Future Hearts series deal with members of the Pendragon family, the dragons are
Spooks and the intelligence community they work within is one of the hardest subjects to research. Because of the secretive nature of their work, which lingers long after they’ve retired, and for the sake of the security of their country, most spooks not only don’t talk about their work, but often even their families don’t
I just finished rereading Kiss Across Tomorrow, as part of my editing and cleanup process, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it. That seems self-aggrandizing, but I’m very pleased to be able to say it, because when I stopped writing the series a year ago, I had started to get a teeny
I haven't been teasing, not exactly. But I have been getting an awful lot of email from readers who are keeping up with the Scandalous Scions series and are dying to find out how Cian's story goes. Cian has been flirting with love for many years now, and his is not a straightforward story. It's tied
If you're into the King Arthur romance series, Once and Future Hearts, then I think you'll love Book 3! I had so much fun writing it. Not because it's a fun book, but because in Book 3, some of the epic, tragic events that thread through the Arthurian mythology are starting to form and influence the characters.
It seems I have shot myself in the foot again. It only seems that way, because I’ve been bitten by time. You’d think, given my time-travel novels, I’d know better. However. In April 2016 I released a post, “By Any Other Name…? No, I Don’t Think So”, where I confessed my shock and surprise at
