regencyHistoric and Regency Romance is enormous fun to write, because you get to bury yourself in fascinating research. Whether it’s studying the fabric and style of dresses in a particular period, or the intricacies of marriage laws in 19th century England, it’s a form of time-travelling into the past. My favourite authors in this genre include Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, Victoria Holt and Elizabeth Rolls.

I enjoy writing novels from the Regency period because the framework is very clear: women didn’t have equality, there were certain expectations, and marriage was truly their only option. So the challenge is to make that a desirable outcome, by creating a hero who is true to his era, progressive enough for modern readers to enjoy, and above all, worthy of the heroine.
