With the imminent release of my debut with eKensington (coming April 4th) and the sequel finished and delivered to my agent, I am already considering my next venture into historical romance. So far I have published one full length (The Arrival of Lily Curtis) Victorian romance and one novella (Love's Debt) with The Wild Rose Press as well as signing a two-book Victorian romance contract with eKensington (The Seduction of Emily and its sequel).
I LOVE history and nothing give me more pleasure than watching TV period dramas. With the success of Downton Abbey and the Tudors, not to mention The Borgias, Larkrise to Candleford and Cranford, for the first time since I began writing historical novels, I'm feeling the need to write in a different era than Victorian.
But which one?
The alternative idea that continually comes back to me is to write two linked books about two sisters living in Bristol at the height of the city's slave trade in the mid-1700s. I would love to explore their relationship as the two of them drift for and against this terrible and profitable business.
I'm sure one of the two will take over my imagination eventually and I'm excited to see which it is - in the meantime, here is the blurb and buy links for my eKensington debut, The Seduction of Emily. Enjoy!
