Have you ever wanted something so much you were afraid to even try That was me ten years agoFor as long as I can remember, I ve wanted to be a novelist I even started dozens of stories, over the years But life kept getting in the way A seriously ill child who required years of therapy a rising mortgage that led to a full time job six children, my own chronic illness the writing took a back seatAs the years passed, the fear grew If I didn t put my stories out there in the market, I wouldn t risk making a fool of myself I could keep the dream alive if I never put it to the testThen my mother died That great lady had waited her whole life to read a novel of mine, and now it would never happenSo I faced my fear and changed it told everyone I knew I was writing a novel Now I d make a fool of myself for certain if I didn t finishMy first book came out to excellent reviews in December , and the rest is history Many books, lots of positive reviews, and a few awards later, I feel foolish for not starting earlierI write historical fiction with a large helping of romance, a splash of Regency, and a twist of suspense I then try to figure out how to slot the story into a genre category I m mad keen on history, enjoy what happens to people in the crucible of a passionate relationship, and love to use a good mystery and some real danger as mechanisms to torture my characters Dip your toe into my world with one of my lunch time reads collections or a novella, or dive into a novel And let me know what you think.

    I enjoyed some of the stories better than others My favourites, because they were unusual and well described, were about a lady who is an escaping slave in the American south and about a young woman married off to a blind peer who is being held captive in a British castle If that doesn t whet your appetite, nothing will Go for it, read and enjoy Variety is the spice of life And love conquers all could be the motto of the author.

    Having never read Jude Knight I was anxious to try her samples of books I read through the 3 of 4 stories in one sitting I have to admit I enjoyed most The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle The story of 2 young people forced to wed and clueless on their wedding night, with how Rupert compensated and his actions without even knowing what he was doing, that was a breath of fresh air Next I liked the Raven s Lady The story of a woman smuggler and how her actions saved the day All that Glisters was t Having never read Jude Knight I was anxious to try her samples of books I read through the 3 of 4 stories in one sitting I have to admit I enjoyed most The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle The story of 2 young people forced to wed and clueless on their wedding night, with how Rupert compensated and his actions without even knowing what he was doing, that was a breath of fresh air Next I liked the Raven s Lady The story of a woman smuggler and how her actions saved the day All that Glisters was the third one I read and I enjoyed the sweet courtship in that story The 4th book I hate to admit, but I skipped I didn t read Kidnapped to Freedom, just my tastes don t run to that type of tales The other 3 I enjoyed immensely and I ll continue to follow her books
