I love writing dialogue-rich historical romance with lashings of humour and a swirl of thematic mystery. Never short of a word myself, my heroines defy and manipulate the conventions of their time with sparkling wit. Heroes with a touch of arrogance must be ripe for comeuppance and that's what my ladies are about. Edinburgh provides a glorious Georgian and Regency setting for Bella and London for Mariah. I'm lucky to live in one and regularly visit the other.
