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

Now, we’re getting somewhere…!

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

A High-Stress Marathon, Even For Me.

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

The Third King Arthur Romance Is Now Available On Amazon

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

A new spy series!

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
