Smashwords Interview

Seriously, you’ve sold more than 100 novels? How is that possible?
I sold my first novel, a hardcover Regency romance (set in Jane Austen’s era) thirty years ago. Since then, I’ve sold about three books a year, to publishers including St. Martin’s Press, Harlequin, Five Star Mysteries and William Morrow. When you break it down by year—I write fulltime—it doesn’t seem quite as overwhelming. By the way, that first novel, Lady in Disguise, is now available as an ebook.
You’ve published in a lot of genres—Regency romance, medical romance, romantic comedies, mysteries, even paranormal thrillers. Why not stick to just one?
Writing the same type of book can be fun and challenging, but exploring other genres keeps me fresh. It’s fun to play with possibilities, as I did in my romantic time travel One Husband Too Many. Occasionally I get an idea that’s really out in left field and it seizes me and won’t let go—that happened with Out of Her Universe. But I don’t want to disappoint readers who enjoy my contemporary medical romances, so I’m still writing those, too.

Can a Regency lady win back the man she rejected? When Lady Sara Rowdon's parents forbade her to marry the impoverished man she loved, no one suspected he would one day return with a title, a fortune and a grudge. But perhaps, if she stops day-dreaming and puts her mind to it, she might discover how he truly feels about her. A charming Cinderella story by an award-winning author.
