Linda Banche

Biography

Tired of the same old, same old? Then...

Welcome to My World of Historical Hilarity!

Regency drawing room, not bedroom, romantic comedies with nary a rake or royal in sight, sometimes spiced with paranormal, fantasy, mystery or science fiction.

But comedy is my love, and I've created my own wacky blend of humor and Regency with stories that can elicit reactions from a gentle smile to a belly laugh.

I'm a two-time EPICON finalist. I live in New England and I like ducks.

So, laugh along with me on a voyage back to the Regency era. Me and my ducks. Quack!
