What I Write and Why I Write It
I've written novels and novellas set in a time that many consider more genteel and, sometimes, more exciting. It was a time when ladies wore beautifully-designed dresses over health-threatening corsets and fancy hats with ribbons, plumes, and stuffed birds. Men wore suits and covered their heads with derbys, Stetsons, and slouch hats, and many grew muttonchop sideburns and beards. Transportation was by foot, horse, stagecoach, carriage, and train.
The world saw an industrial revolution and marveled at new inventions meant to ease people's everyday lives. The western half of the United States was being settled, expanding the country's territory and bringing new states into the Union.
At the same time, women were expected to remain ladylike, and men were expected to honor those women through respect, protection, and provision.
What an exciting historical era for a character struggling to find a place in a changing world while discovering God's plan for a worthwhile life and the person with whom they'll share that life.
I've written and will continue to write historical romances set in the Victorian era, but when it comes to emotions aren't people the same in these days as they were in our yesteryears?
As such, I've branched out to include contemporary romances in my list of stories to offer readers. The characters might deal with today's problems, but these stories are no less clean and wholesome than the historicals.
Overall, I write faith-filled stories, because I believe God has much to teach us through story, whether we're the reader or the author.
Some of my books are available on various retailers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and Google Play. Others are on Amazon only and available to read through Kindle Unlimited.
