paradeIn most parts of the world, it’s #WhyIWriteHistoricals #WhyIReadHistoricals day. Here, it is Saturday morning, but I thought I’d share with you the tweets I posted yesterday.

  • Through the lens of history, we can more clearly see our own times
  • I write what I love to read: strong determined heroines, loving heroes, compelling story lines, convincing challenges
  • Knights, Dukes, Earls, handsome rogues and pirates; what’s not to like?
  • Sometimes the stories I want to tell could only have happened in one time and place
  • I dream of a life of leisure, with nothing to do but flirt with rakes and dance at balls
  • I love to read about history, and now I’m not wasting time, I’m doing research
  • The past is a different country
  • I want to go somewhen else for my book holiday
  • Gorgeous men in cravats and knit pantaloons are hot
  • The Regency and Georgian eras fascinate me. They hold up a mirror to society today
  • Those who will not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Love hearing from you
