More About the Author

Dear Readers, I am pleased to announce that my most recent mystery novel, titled STALKING A KILLER will be published by Mayfair Mysteries in August 2013 and simultaneously available in print and as an e-book from Amazon! STALKING A KILLER features Amanda Mason, a twenty-something single mom raising her five-year-old son alone. Studying to become a private investigator, Amanda is shocked when it appears that her first case is to clear her elderly father of a murder charge! STALKING A KILLER is a contemporary novel set in a small lake town near Dallas, Texas where I lived for most of my adult life.

Back when I lived in Dallas, I had not yet thought of becoming a writer, and instead was thoroughly enjoying my career as a free-lance graphic artist. I loved being a fashion illustrator and attending the exciting runway fashion shows at the Apparel Mart. At this same time, I also enjoyed writing ad copy and articles for the newspapers, and eventually accepted a position as University Editor at The University of Texas at Dallas and later, teaching newspaper layout and news story writing to journalism students at Southern Methodist University. As my interest in writing grew, I joined a local chapter of Romance Writers of America, and was thrilled to win their national contest to design the new RITA award and even more thrilled to be awarded the first RITA statuette ever presented at the RWA Conference in San Francisco that year! After that, I became hooked on writing and soon sold my first two Regency Romance novels to a New York publisher. Six of my Regencies were published and are all now available as e-books on Amazon for the Kindle as well as other reading devices. During this same time, I also began to publish The Regency Plume Newsletter which focuses on the Regency period in English history. All back issues of The Regency Plume Newsletter can still be ordered from my web site. Just type in "The Regency Plume" on Yahoo or Google and you'll get there quick.

After my first six Regency romance novels were published in the late nineties, real life took me away from writing for a time and I sometimes feared I'd never take it up again but, since I am a writer at heart, another story soon began to beckon to me and I spent several years researching a new time period, Colonial America. I called my new story THE LETTER. The book was published in hardback in 2010. You can read THE LETTER now as an e-book on Amazon. It tells the story of a young English girl who travels to Jamestown in 1617 in search of her childhood sweetheart, who had traveled to the New World in search of a new life.

The sequel to THE LETTER is titled A PETTICOAT AND LAMBSKIN GLOVES, which was also published and released in hardcover in 2012. This story is about four English girls who travel to the New World on a Bride Ship, each in search of love and husbands, but once in Jamestown, the girls are shocked to discover that someone there wants one, or all of them, dead!

I wrote another novel set during Colonial America, but I moved up from Jamestown in the early 1600s to the late 1700s and set this book in Philadelphia during the American Revolutionary war. Aside from a few books written about Betsy Ross by her descendants, neither my publisher nor I knew of any fictional works for adults that featured Betsy Ross as heroine. Although I spent months researching the war, and George Washington and other Patriot and British generals, BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is a work of fiction and should be regarded as such. I discovered in my research that very little is known about Betsy's life during the year 1776, the year after her husband John Ross was reportedly killed in a freak warehouse explosion, therefore I chose that year in which to weave my story. When the authorities did nothing to investigate the warehouse explosion, Betsy decides to solve the mystery herself and in the doing is drawn into Philadelphia's dangerous and confusing underworld of spies and double spies working for both the British and the Patriot rebels. Published by Mayfair Mysteries, BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is available in print on Amazon and also as an e-book for the Kindle and most other e-readers.

I hope you are enjoying my Colonial American historical suspense novels, my Regency romance novels, and that you will also like my new contemporary mystery novel, STALKING A KILLER. Thank you for reading my books! I love hearing from readers so if you'd like to contact me, you'll find a link to my e-mail address on The Regency Plume website. Happy reading and God bless.

This is one of the funniest Regency novels I have ever read, although FELICITY'S FOLLY and THE UNSUITABLE SUITOR also by Marilyn Clay, are everybit as entertaining. Eliza's impulsiveness lands both herself and General Huntley, the longsuffering hero of this book, into all kinds of trouble. One funny scene follows another as the falsehoods and fabrications escalate. Very clever, a real page-turner!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I cannot concretely explain why this book doesn't work. It has interesting characters and good writing, but the whole thing just doesn't do it. Perhaps it is because the plot backfires on itself. The premise of the book is that 18-year-old Eliza wants to show her 40-year-old father that his being smitten with a 19-year-old girl is wrong. She does this by getting involved with a 38-year-old war hero. Then, of course, Eliza and March, the war hero, get together. The underlying problem is that the author convinced me that these May-December romances are wrong: this is the equivalent of a high school senior and a middle aged man. This is emphasized by the heroine's extreme immaturity (what we are supposed to perceive as "innocence") and the hero's somber gravity. Add to that that every character is trying to teach the other characters "lessons" through deceit and artifice. By the end, I was thoroughly sick of the whole mess, though everyone forgave everyone else and the whole thing wrapped up in literally one page.
Sorry, but this book isn't worth your time.

Again I was impressed by this author's deft handling of two very unusual characters. The hero is quite satisfied with his life as a military man, until Miss Eliza totally disrupts things by drawing him into her outrageous scheme to prove to her father that she knows best. Each scene that unfolds draws this mis-matched pair deeper into trouble. But, the author manages quite skillfully to sort things out and let Miss Eliza and the general discover that they truly do love one another. A delicious read!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm very dissapointed that I bought this book. When I received it in the mail, I immediately turned to the first page that gives an excerpt from the book. The two main characters were in romantic silence when a cat interrupted them with a "meow." From that moment, I knew I was not going to like the book. Why would the author include a cat? Just think about the main characters kissing and the "Hack, hack! Oh pardon my lady, I happened to choke on one of your cats furballs." It is just so random. In addition, I didn't favor the relationship between Eliza and Huntley. Something about courting someone the same age as your father is a turn-off. When the author describes Huntley's "graying hair", I wished that they sold "Just for Men" in the regency period. The maybe I could have taken the book without thinking "Ole Huntley needs to get his hair died."
I forgot to mention that the beginning is somewhat slow. Eliza is a weak heroine and didn't capture my attention.
-I recommend this book for people who like cats and old men.
