Here I am at a book signing event on July 29th, 2013. I also was a guest speaker at the Written Dreams Writing Conference there.
Welcome to my little plot of cyberspace. I am a historian and a writer.
I am passionate about two things in life:
Strong Coffee & Strong Romantic Heroes.
A little info about the nerdy side of me: My degree studies focused on the Colonial, & Revolutionary periods of American history in the mid to late 18th century, and also the Early American Republic era of the 19th century. With a second major in Humanistic Studies, my research emphasis is in Ancient and Medieval Studies, specifically the Classical period thru the Middle Ages.
This site is an extension of my overactive imagination as an author (and coffee drinker)--and it is also a relaxed, welcoming coffeehouse type of research site for those wishing to find out a little more about everyday life in the 18th century. You'll find trivia here, along with some resource listings if you want to pursue a more serious vein. History is fun, because its about people--its the story of us.
I love researching history, but I also love to read romances. It's my vice.
Strong Coffee & Strong Romantic Heroes:
Serve it up any way you like; with a dash of history, mystery or elements of the paranormal. Vampires, Pirates, Wizards or Vikings. Its all good.Romance--the search for lasting love--is the heart and soul of human existence in any time period. So, go ahead, read a romance without the added guilt! It won't raise your cholesterol or give you cancer, but it will give your heart a lift as one of the standards of the romance genre is the ending---Happily Ever After!
Join me for a steaming cup of rich, dark freshly ground coffee and lose yourself in a timeless romance.
