Glimpses of the past have always sparked my imagination. An old, faded letter, a sepia-toned photograph, an apple tree blooming bravely in the remnant of a long-forgotten orchard, each of these has a story to tell.
It's the stories of ordinary people that appeal to me the most. I write what I like to call 'literary romance'...love stories with more to offer than the growth of a single relationship. Stories where family and community play strong roles, where love blossoms in season and is all the sweeter for the hardships and obstacles that have to be overcome. In the Old West, in Victorian England, in the early years of the twentieth century, love was and is unchanging. Timeless. It's that common thread of hearts through history that inspires me.
