Author has written 4 stories for Historical.

I am an avid reader and a fan of British literature. I love all things related to Jane Austen. I also am a fan of Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens, and a variety of other writers too numerous to mention. So far, I have three stories, all set in 19th century England:

Temperance-This story has been in my mind forever and I have meticulously worked out the plotline. Her father ruined and her family scorned, Emily Graham must make a new life in the English countryside.

The Spinster Society-I am co-authoring this story with another person. We have spent a lot of time coming up with the characters and plot. It will be more comedic. Sort of a parody. Determined to avoid matrimony, four friends make a solemn vow, in which they promise to remain forever unmarried and unattached. Thus, they form the Spinster Society. Tangles and snares ensue, however, as they encounter the glittering London Season and find themselves caught in the various and complicated games of courtship and love.

The Everett Sisters-This will not be quite as long as the other two stories I am currently working on. The plot is not as detailed or extensive, but I still do like this story. Gentle Sophia never takes the time to realize or secure her own happiness, even when it concerns the wise doctor who is in love with her. Impetuous and independent Bella may be the only person who can possibly tame the beast they call the Earl of Locksley. And jealous Cornelia has plans of her own…

To apologize in advance: I am rather forgetful. I adore writing and I have already typed many things up, but I often forget to post, etc., or I am simply to lazy. Just a warning. I do, however, hope to stay on track!
