More About the Author
I'm glad you found me. My first book is out in August, 2009 and the title is "The Notorious Bridegroom." I actually wrote this book in the early 1990's and tried half-heartedly to get it published, then got on with my life (you know- career, marriage, house, pets). Thirteen years later, after mentioning in an off-hand manner to my sister-in-law, Alice, I had written a book, she asked to read it. Um, yeah, well, ok. So my husband downloaded the old disks and voila! they worked!
I pulled up the old ms and read it and thought, gosh, this is pretty darn good, I know what you're thinking - a completely objective review! So I spent several months revising it until I thought it was presentable. Lo and behold, Alice read it and liked it! As luck would have it, I found my editor from Kensington, and she liked it too! Whew! I was on my way.
When I got the call from my editor, I think I stopped breathing. It was hard to focus on what she was saying because I kept thinking you mean I'm going to have a book with my name on the cover? What do you think and how are you to feel when someone tells you one of your dreams finally came true? Invincible.
So what does a girl do but get busy writing the 2nd book, "The Vengeful Bridegroom" slated for 2010. Yes, it does sound like it is a series, after all, similar titles and all, but they have little in common. Similar characters pop up in both books, but just for fun.
What I have found in writing these two books, and I'm almost finished the third, "The Wrong Bridegroom," is that I like creating the regency world and splashing it with lots of colorful characters and adding intrigue. Danger lurks around every corner! Ok, well, that's a bit of an exaggeration. In Book #1-Notorious, we have French spies and Napoleon on the brink of invading England. In Book #2-Vengeful, we have a dastardly Italian count, missing diamonds, and someone out to kill our heroine. In Book #3- Wrong, we enter the world of body-snatchers.
Well, I'll sign off now and add more later. My current goal is to sell lots of books and keep writing. I hope you enjoy my books, which I fill with "heart, heat, and humor." Best of All, Kit
