I write Romantic Historical Fiction (or, upmarket historical romance) set in the 20th century. I love to write strong and intelligent heroines grappling with their personal relationships and the thornier issues of their time, and the intelligent and dashing men who love them. My stories span the globe and place a strong focus on the multicultural society, the class system, and the tough questions and conflicts with which people of the first six decades of the 20th century dealt.
In my fiction, I try my best to push beyond using the historical setting as “fantasy” or “fairy tale”. I don’t want to write historicals to present the past through rose-colored glasses, but about real people, experiencing real life as it was one hundred years ago. Maybe I’ll fail, or maybe I won’t, but if you think realism and history can be melded with wit, humor, adventure, passionate romance, and unforgettable characters, please stick around.
Here you will find out a bit about me and my writing, and keep track of my latest news.
August 22, 2015 Say goodbye to this site and Edwardian Promenade, and hello to DoyenneofHistory.com. I’ve been musing over consolidating my author and history websites for about two years, and finally made the decision to do so. The EP url will remain, but EH will point to DoH.
On the writing front, I’m working on a trilogy related to my novella in Fall of Poppies. Think Harlem, Paris, the Lost Generation, Jazz, Broadway, and the burgeoning civil rights movement.
