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

Have You Reached That Time When The World Stops Seeing You?

I know more than a few men read my blogs and emails. For you, this post may make you scratch your head. Perhaps not--I know this happens to men, too, but usually far later in life. For women, it happens far, far earlier. I'm talking about disappearing from view. I remember when it began to

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

Next in the King Arthur romance series! (Oh, and Cover Reveal!!)

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.

DRAGON KIN now on pre-order at Amazon.

I've been getting some rather good feedback on the first book in my new King Arthur series, Once and Future Hearts. The first book, Born of No Man, is getting some rave reviews.  It reached the top 100 in Ancient World Romances, and #16 in the Hot New Releases list, which was amazing. Here's some review

Love King Arthur? Try this!

I love and adore the King Arthur mythology, and have since I was quite young. So it is a thrill to sink into the stories and recreate the tale my way -- in this case, via twelve romances. Why twelve books? Arthur fought twelve battles, culminating in the Battle of Badon Hill, before Britain was free

Plaid, Breeches…what’s next?

Historical romance gets short shrift from the traditional publishing industry. Fifteen years ago, it was selling like hotcakes, until they declared that the historical romance market was dead and promptly stopped buying historical romance from authors…which killed the market for them. (Funny how that works). One of the earlier editions of DIANA BY THE

Camelot is 54 Years Old

Funny, I was just talking about Lancelot the other day, wasn’t I? Sheer coincidence. Or perhaps not. The Arthurian tale seems to be one of those evergreen ones, that revises itself, renews its magic and repeats generation after generation. I am particularly fond of the Camelot musical and especially the movie made from the same

Why King Arthur Endlessly Endures

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m going to mention it again.  If you haven’t clued in yet, I’m a history nut, and Britain is prime hunting territory for me.  Coming from Australia, where nothing is much over sixty seconds old, Britain was like Christmas and Valentine’s Day rolled into one for me.  My

The Story Behind Diana

The original cover, from Hardshell Word Factory. Yeah.....I know! I grew up reading a dozen different versions of the King Arthur legend and loved them all.  When I hit my most impressionable years, there were a few really good movies and stage plays that came out – I even saw Richard Harris live
