When your marriage dates don’t work out …

When your marriage dates don’t work out …

I’m writing a Christmas story for my blog, and thought it would be a great idea to have Darcy and Elizabeth marry on Christmas Eve. I was reminded by some friends about Holy Days in the church, and that marriages are restricted on certain days. That led me down quite the rabbit hole of research.… more goodness …

Darcy’s eavesdropping, and I’m giving books away!

Darcy’s eavesdropping, and I’m giving books away!

It’s that time again … I have completed another novel. 🙂 This one is called Darcy Overhears. It is 43,038 words and 216 printed pages of awesomeness, if I do say so myself. <3 ~~~***~~~ This story began as a tiny “what if.” What if Darcy overheard something about Elizabeth?

Jane Austen’s Writing Desk

Jane Austen’s Writing Desk

I thought for a long time about what I should say in this month’s post.  After a few hours of race-watching (it was a postponed race, so I was watching on Monday instead of Sunday) and bouncing several ideas around in my mind, I decided to go with something writing-related. Suddenly, I thought about our… more goodness …

Jane Austen and American Indians

Jane Austen and American Indians

For this month’s post, I chose a difficult topic. There wasn’t much information to be found, so what I have done is to share what I have discovered and then compare what was going on in Jane Austen’s world with what was happening here. I hope you enjoy it! ~~~***~~~ Two weekends ago, on August… more goodness …

A New Book Baby and Giveaway

I’m looking at the date (June 17th as I write this) and shaking my head. The month of June is half over, which means 2018 is almost half over! After the long winter we had, I’m taking every chance I can get to be outside, enjoying the green grass and the flowers … and the… more goodness …

Therapy Dogs in Austen?

Therapy Dogs in Austen?

Last year, I wrote a post about dogs. I couldn’t have imagined then that a dog would play a central role in one of my books, but it has. In my current Work-In-Progress, called To Save Elizabeth, Lizzy has a therapy dog, a Great Dane named Brutus. Now, therapy dogs were not a “thing” in… more goodness …
