Author has written 5 stories for Historical.

Hello and welcome to my profile page.

To me, the written word is a thing of beauty. The way words and sentences are connected can mean the difference between excellence and mediocrity. I strive for the former, but realistically I know that I am not quite there yet. That is why I am here, to gain the practice, and if people like my work then I consider it a bonus. But you guys have to tell me so please feel free to comment.

The main genre I write is Historical Fiction, particularly focusing on the Regency Period. I love it. I love reading it and I love writing it. I am an unofficial student of history and as a result, I try to make my work as historically accurate as I can, which includes the customs of the day and also the famous people who feature prominently at that time. So do not be surprised if Prinny, Beau Brummell and Lady Cowper, along with the rest of the Almack's patronesses, make an appearance in any of my stories.

Any way, I hope you enjoy reading my humble efforts as much as I enjoy writing them.

Cheers, Kayla.

The Cartographer's Girls by silverandbone reviews
ON PERMANENT HIATUS. When Charlotte and her sisters arrive in London, they turn the life of their eccentric bachelor uncle upside down. Regency fluff and general tomfoolery, likely never to be completed.
