Today I celebrate a birthday exactly two years to the day I wrote “The End” on The Thief’s Countess. It’s hard to believe two years have gone by already. My publishing journey has led from retirement after twenty years in education to a full-time historical romance writing career, and I could not be more excited. Writing in a genre I love, researching medieval England and spending my days with Scottish romance heroes, like Toren in this current release, hardly feels like work. Instead, I’m writing on Sunday (and my birthday) not because I have to, but because it brings me joy to make the stories in my head come alive.
I’m often asked if it’s difficult to think of new stories. Just the opposite. The hard part is making my fingers move fast enough across the keyboard in order to tell the next tell. In this current book release, the Border Series finally has a Scottish hero, Toren Kerr, chief of Clan Kerr. When he’s sent to the Tournament of the North in England to kill the English warden who upsets the tenuous peace along the border, he falls in love with none other than the warden’s daughter.
Fight for your king or the woman you love?
He faces a difficult decision, but you can find out what Toren chooses by reading The Chief’s Maiden, a brand new historical romance for medieval romance fans, for free in Amazon Kindle or grabbing at its special $2.99 launch price (expires soon!) If you do read and enjoy the book, I’d love to know what you think. Leave a comment below, and I’ll be sure to comment back. Now it’s off to find that chocolate and peanut butter cake my mother orders every year which will be desert today and breakfast for at least two days to come. That’s totally legitimate, right?
