I write books and apparently they aren’t awful.

  The fact that I write books (hey, I’m a Proper Writer now as the Romantic Novelists Association have let me join as a full member and everything! Anyone else going to their Regency Heyer and Austen day in October?) seems to have caused some ripples of surprise lately so I thought it was time for an update about the […]


This is what a romance novelist looks like…

Oh hey there Daily Mail, I hear you got one of your hacks to write a pile of cretinous bilge about my fine friends at the Romantic Novelists Association this week so I thought you might like to see what an actual romance novelist looks like. Apparently you said RNA members had ‘blue rinses’ – would pink suffice? How about […]


Writing update

Well, Before The Storm is almost finished and I find myself gripped by that peculiar fear that strikes towards the end of any writing project. I’m almost paralysed with fear and can hardly bring myself to write anything because as soon as it is finished, I will have to tackle the edits and also think seriously about its ultimate fate. […]


Introducing my follow up to The Secret Diary…

Before the Storm, Revolutionary Women

I’m now almost 35,000 words into the book – they’re currently admiring a very lovely château on a bright, sunny spring morning so I can safely leave them all there for a bit and talk to you instead. I’ve modelled the château on gorgeous French Renaissance Azay-le-Rideau in the Loire Valley as it is just such a special place. Research […]

I’ve even […]

Versailles, 5th October 1789

I had plenty of time to be alone with my thoughts that afternoon at the Petit Trianon. The Queen had gone off on her own to her little grotto, keen to enjoy the rare luxury of solitude and leaving her ladies in waiting to wander about the gardens and gossip in the lovely light filled salon. It was a beautiful […]
