My new book is live at Amazon! Pemberley Forest ~ let me warn you at the outset ~ has sex in it. And not the right kind. The story is about a little-known character in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mrs. Hurst, who gets lost in the woods at Pemberley during the time of Elizabeth Bennet’s visit there with the Gardiners.
When Darcy finds Elizabeth Bennet at Pemberley, touring the house with her aunt and uncle, he invites them to come back again… and again, much to the di
Alas! Kitty Cornered – Kitty Bennet’s story – will be delayed until the fall.
There is no help for it – life, the day job, and everything demand more than their share in the conversation.
I can hear poor Kitty complaining that she never gets to do anything. Little does she know the adventure in store for her!
As you may know, I’ve lately fallen into the varied and fascinating world of JAFF – Jane Austen fan fiction. It’s a real thing! And it’s fun. The 1995 Colin Firth production of Pride and Prejudice , most particularly the lake scene, inspired a fervor for Jane Austen’s works – and P&P in particular – so great that her 6 novels have not been enough.
There’s a whole world of spin-offs, reimaginations, prequels, sequels, and… mashups.
You remember Pride and Preju dice a
It never fails.
Every time I publish a book, a wave of sludge-like bad feeling engulfs me.
Will they hate it? The cover sux, omg. Will anyone even read it? What was I thinking? Who the hell do I think I am?
Usually some nice reviews come in after some time, and I utter a mental “whew!” and relax a little.
Sometimes I get a one-star immediately from someone who hates the book because it’s about what the blurb says it’s about. My eyes cross and my heart cries out
This is almost a flash giveaway – it (should) run one day, until midnight Saturday, eastern time. I say should because I haven’t used rafflecopter in a while – I think I did it right!

With the series now ended, much has already been said about the excellence of FX’s Justified . For my contribution to the conversation, I repost here Elmore Leonard’s ten rules for writing: Never open a book with weather. Avoid prologues. Never use a verb other than “said” to carry dialogue. Never use an adverb to modify the verb “said”…he admonished gravely. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,
A Pride and Prejudice Variation
I’m super excited about my new series, Accomplished Ladies – five Pride and Prejudice variations set in the Regency period.
The first story, The Wager , is Mary Bennet’s story.
When Charlotte Collins invites Mary Bennet to visit Hunsford, she accepts, determined to quash her tender feelings for Mr. Collins. But she’s is quite unprepared for the handsome and charming Major Carleton “Carley” Quartermaine, visiting Ros
I can’t believe the fairy series is coming to an end. It started with Give Me which was just supposed to be a one-off, a fun story I wrote for myself.
But people liked the story and wanted to know more about Lilith and Cade and about Dumnos, the land of mist and rain. And so…
Bride of Fae came about, the story of Cade’s mother, Lilith’s father, and a further trek into the world of the Dumnos fae.
Fever Mist is the appetize
