Growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast, I was a world away from London and the beautiful English countryside. But I still loved all things British…the lilt of the language, tea & crumpets, the castles and country estates, the idea of a Royal Family who really knew how to throw a wedding…all these seemed like the ultimate fairy tale and they captivated me.
I also loved history, so what would be more natural for me than to study British history? Even today, I could tell you more about Henry VIII’s six wives than I could most U.S. presidents.
So when I discovered Regency historical romances written by numerous authors (most notably Georgette Heyer, Barbara Cartland, and of course, Miss Jane Austen), it was a match made in…well, made in the library and the local bookstore, at least! I read perhaps a thousand or so and then decided to try my hand at writing one. The results were Marisa Becoming Fourteen, Marisa’s Choice and An Arranged Valentine. I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them.
I’d love to hear from you! Please leave me a comment below, connect with me on Twitter (@KadeeMcDonald ) or Facebook (KadeeMcDonaldAuthor), or come back to this site for updates.
