Welcome to my fictional world! I was raised on the Isle of Wight in Southern England, surrounded by castles, stately homes and Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s island retreat, was literally on my doorstep. I think I must have absorbed the vibes without even knowing it, accounting for my love of English history, especially the rich Regency period. It’s an endless source of fascination for a writer with a lively imagination.
I wrote my first full-length Regency novel when I was in my early twenties (and no, I’m not admitting to how long ago that was!). I resurrected it many years later and it now forms the basis of the plot for one of my many published books. Moral of the story - never throw anything away.
Please take a look around this site. You’ll find a ton of Regencies, plus quite a few contemporary romances and, writing as W. Soliman, a series of marine crime mysteries featuring live-aboard detective Charlie Hunter. I spent years avoiding boats while living on the island, and more recently helping my husband to get over his obsession with the damned things. Never waste an experience!
Thanks for stopping by. If you get around to reading any of my books, and you can sample the first chapter of all of them right here, please let me know what you think of them. I’d love to hear from you.
'I love this author's books. The history is spot on, the hero gorgeous and plenty of action and sizzle...'
