Breast Cancer in the Regency Period

Breast Cancer in the Regency Period

No woman ever wants to hear these words: you have breast cancer. However, in the 21st century, women have a much higher success rate in beating cancer than ever before. Thank goodness we live now and not two hundred years ago. Which makes me wonder about what happened to women who had breast cancer during… more goodness …

Falling in Love with Regency

Falling in Love with Regency

As I’m finishing my latest Regency romance (under the pseudonym Catherine Eleanor),The Wedding at Shire Hall, I have come to realize why, exactly, so many of us love reading romance from the early 1800s. It’s just a plain romantic era! As a writer, I am enjoying the creativity of imagining what life was like…from the… more goodness …

Northanger Abbey: The Forgotten Jane Austen?

Most of the time, when people mention Jane Austen, they immediately think of Pride and Prejudice or Sense & Sensibility. True diehards will mention Emma and Persuasion. Mansfield Park occasionally creeps into the discussion. Personally, I enjoyed Northanger Abbey much more than Persuasion and Mansfield Park. But, in my experience, very few people ever bring… more goodness …

Regency Era Fan Fiction

A few months ago, a publisher contacted me about the creation of a Plain Fame Fan Fiction World. Immediately, I said YES. I love fan fiction. Or, rather, I love well-written fan-fiction.

Cowgirl Cat

Cowgirl Cat

On November 8th, something wonderful happened. No, I’m not referring to the election in the USA. I think many of us would prefer to forget about that (and I’m writing this blog BEFORE Election Day so draw your own conclusions as to what I mean…). What I’m referring to is the publication of my latest… more goodness …

Someone for Everyone

Mayhaps, she told herself, there is indeed, someone for everyone. After all, who was she to question God’s plan? A long time ago and in a far away galaxy, a young girl, isolated on her own, personal spacecraft, continuously orbits through space without any destination… No, that’s not how I really want to start this… more goodness …

Oh Jane, How Much Do I Love Thee?

Oh Jane, How Much Do I Love Thee?

Apparently a lot since I’m in the process of writing a new Jane Austen adaptation. However, unlike my previous novels that retold Jane Austen’s novels in an Amish setting, I am doing the reverse. That’s right. The reverse. A while back, a publisher contacted me regarding creating a new fan fiction “world” from my very… more goodness …

The Poetic Writing of Jane Austen

The Poetic Writing of Jane Austen

A few months ago, I attended a seminar at Drew University in Madison, Jersey: Austen and Byron: Together Again. While the lecture was interesting and resulting in my immediate purchasing of several Byron books (of which I have only glanced through since then…such is the life of a book-a-holic), the most fascinating aspect of the… more goodness …
