My Worst Enemy

My Worst Enemy     I though I'd talk about my paranormal time travel romance series, Kiss Across Time, today.  As there is sort-of news.  Actually it's more a random musing...but I'll get to that. I have a list of release dates and proposed books that stretches out at least a year ahead of today. 

Is It Really About Me?

Is It Really About Me? I found myself in interesting territory, while writing the eleventh installment of the Scandalous Scions series. The heroine in the story is an artist, and facing the age-old decision of art-or-everything-else. I'm not a painter, but my daughter-in-law is a talent, prize-winning artist, so I've picked up odd bits here

Wash Your Hands, Dammit!

Wash Your Hands, Dammit! It's pretty common and far easier to think of the "Victorian Era" as one unchanging snapshot in time, where the women wore pretty things and the men were all gentlemen and lords. The Victorian era, though, lasted 64 years, from 20 June, 1837 until Queen Victoria's death on 22 January, 1901​.  In

Dragonwall, and the lunatics who use it.

Dragonwall and the lunatics who use it. When I'm researching for novels, I end up in some very strange territory sometimes. Especially with the new Project Kobra series, I often wondered if I was setting off alarm bells in a cubicle at the NSA, or the counter-terrorism unit of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police),

Pirates, Highlanders and Historical Personages.

Monday's Facebook Live session nearly didn't happen. When you get your "I'm live in 30 minutes" warning, I also get a copy. Guess where I was when my phone dinged me? I was 15km away from home, shopping with my Mum, who returns to Australia tomorrow morning. That was the fastest drive back home on

Gimme Tension

  I've watched and read a lot of action thrillers in my time. One of my favourite action thriller writers was Desmond Bagley, and my favourite book of his was a spy thriller called Running Blind (which I highly recommend). I also really liked Alistair McLean's action thrillers, but not quite as much. I also loved Peter

A Man In Uniform…or not?

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.

Too Ugly To Show You.

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
