What to tell you about me?

My writing career began, as many have, with fanfiction. While some of these stories are here, the majority can be found on Fanfiction.net under the pen name: Eclectic Butterfly.

I am a self published author with one historical novel, Emily's Choice, available on Amazon. I am currently working on a trilogy of books set in the Regency time period, the first of which is Keeping the Past. I have several other ideas I'm hoping to pursue as well once my health allows me the freedom to do so.

I am extremely delighted to have Emily's Choice on the Featured list for Historical Fiction, and even more thrilled to have it go up to #1 on the What's Hot list on Aug. 4th!

In my spare time, I am a book reviewer for a book site, so I always have a list of books to read, which can be a distraction when I need to write.
