About

Me? I am a romancophile hiding away from real life in my world of fiction. I am a fan of historical romance, and regency is my favourite time to set a story in. I love grammatically correct tales since then I can concentrate on the plot rather than being distracted by something I want to correct, but I can quite happily throw over pretenses for a gripping story. Did I mention that I am an English teacher? I am tardy in reviewing and would like to beg forgiveness of all writers now itself for that abysmal habit of mine. I do try, but my marriage, son and job stop me from voting and commenting as much as I might wish. 

And I continue to be awestruck at all the love people have given to my novella and poems on Wattpad. Ratings don't matter that much to me (not a lot at least, I am but human!), but the acceptance and encouragement of all the wonderful people out here does. I am always humbled when people express their feelings for my writing, even if it is but a line or two. I love hearing from you all!

“Now,” he said patiently, as he turned the small hand still encased in his own and dropped a searing kiss on her palm, “will you put me out of my misery, Miss Warren? My words have exhausted themselv...

ha ha ha! To tell you the truth, I almost squealed too when I read the finished product, and I wrote it! Pathetic right? :)

@ZoeMontgomery2 thank you, thank you for such a lovely comment! it really makes my day when my writing touches someone's heart as well as triggers their own memories. I can't direct you to any others though... I haven't searched enough to suggest anything! :) As for writing more... alas! it is a matter of great regret to me that somehow, despite my getting more material to write about than ever before, my muse seems to have dried up. I have a small 8 months + son, and balancing a job with his care doesn't leave me with either motivation or energy to sit down and write. My ideas are all there banging around in my brain, but outlet's not available. ah, some day! :)

Thank you for your lovely comment! As for your question, I didn't mention that creep because he stopped being important to the story and the epilogue was very long as it were already. But I do think that, unfortunately, he will not get any punishment for his deeds. Rich influential men rarely did in those days, you know...especially if their victims were poor, 'insignificant ' working women. Sad, but life was pretty unfair back then.

@hlf1970 thanks for this reply! yes, I know that it is a very detailed epilogue and covers the range of many years in a short space. fact is, I thought that the story had reached a definite climax and shouldn't be dragged too far. as for a second book, I wish I had the time to write it. (rueful I smile). i have at least three other stories that need to be written down, but a lack of time and privacy have stopped me from continuing them at all. at least Racjel,'s Story is complete in itself.
