Smashwords Interview

Wat made you design and write Graphic Novels or illustrated historical fiction?
I am a real history freak, a romantic, a writer and an illustrator. I like to create pleasant things you can look at.
For the first books I wrote (now number 4 and 5 in the Regency Romantic Warriors Series) I started to design a collage of pictures and soon the idea to actually illustrate all my books was born.
Instead of 'Graphic Novels', my books are 'Novels with Graphics.'

I designed collages of different (shopped) pictures on top of each chapter in my novels.
I did not put an illustration on each page of the books, as telling a story needs a lot of word space even if 'a picture tells a thousand words.'

Just like the booktrailers I created, the graphics almost take more time to design, than to actually write a book.
I like to be in the 'niche' Illustrated Historical Fiction.
What's the story behind your Regency Romantic Warriors Series?
The book I wrote first, is now number 4 in my Regency Romantic Warriors series. (A Mercenary Major part 1.) Together with its sequel (novel 5) I think it is the most romantic book of the series. You can clearly see the 'romantic influences' I got when reading huge amounts of Regency Romance in those days.
I started reading Regency romance and thought it would be fun to try to write my own book about that time period.
I did read a lot of Sharpe books (Bernard Cornwell) and I liked to put the adventures of officers in the British army into my own books as well. The war with Napoleon gives me a lot more adventure to add. Hence the appearance of the Regency Romantic Warriors.

I wanted to insert Lionel's story - A Major's Mistake (volume 6) into those first books as well, but it became so entirely different from: A Mercenary Major, novel 4+5, that I made it into a separate book. That was not an easy feat and I had to revise the book numerous times.

Lochiel's story - A Lieutenant at Large (novel 1) was written close to that time period as a separate novel. I did not foresee at all that it would become number 1 in a whole series. Mind, I only published Volume 1 a few months before 'About Officers and Gentlemen' (Volume 7) was published, which was to be the last of the Series until now.

One day my attention was attracted to the historical facts of the rounding up of gays in 'The Vere Street Coterie' in 1810 with the ensuing executions. That was when I got inspired to write Hengist's story - A Major in Distress, part 1+2 (Volume 2+3 in the Regency Romantic Warriors Series).
You may eventually notice that Volume 2+3 and 7 have a lot 'darker quality' in the series.

Book 7 is about the period between the wars in 1814 and 1815. It is also the description of what happens to Lizzie Campbell (after her adventures in the first novel - A Lieutenant at Large) and her marriage to Lord John.

I think I the Regency Romantic Warriors Series will consist of 9 books in the end, provided I can get all the stories around Waterloo (1815) into the two remaining books 8 and 9.

I am now writing the first part of 'Waterloo Warriors' (novel 8). It is an entire new story with a lot of people from the old cast in it.
