Author has written 15 stories for Historical, General, Romance, Friendship, and Fantasy.

I'm eighteen years old, a Londoner and a lover of all things Regency. Persuasion by Jane Austen, Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys and The Ladies of Grace Adeiu by Susanna Clarke are among by favourite books. Henry and Theresa and For the Love of Miss King are from my Stories of Blackwood series, for which I have more stories planned. The Wager and Travelling by Post are two slightly shorter, Regency tales. My other stories are various oneshots, some of which may or may not lead to bigger things. I hope you enjoy my work and would love to see any comments you have!
