Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Lady Amelia Fitzailwyn knows everything about everything... she certainly does not require Finishing School! If John and Alex had not tattled on her, she would still be home! It was fine for them to chase every skirt in the Kingdom but she has one kiss ...or two, and Uncle carts her off!

Day one of her banishment, at Madame de Rigeur's Young Ladies Finishing Academie, is dismal. Her roommate is insular, Clarissa is cruel...and that spotty girl's rash is probably contagious! Then, she meets Monsieur Pelfrie, the handsomest man she has ever seen, and Amelia decides it might just be possible to endure the two long years away from home.

Enjoy this delightful tale of mischief and mayhem as a sheltered young woman comes of age in Georgian England.

A BIO! I CAN'T WRITE A BIO! My books are much more interesting than me! Having said that, I'll share that I adore 18th century English history and imagine I'm transported back to that period when I'm writing. I make every attempt to represent the period authentically when I write of it and don't pull punches. As a result, you may find some of my content unusual, but I believe strongly in representing likely characters of the period realistically. HOW DO I CREATE MY CHARACTERS? Character inspirations come to me after reading of a particular event, during the period, that interests me. I often awaken from a sound sleep with a poem or segment of a story telling itself to me quite clearly. I jump up (scare my hubby half to death) and run to my desk to write it all out. At other times, mostly when I'm gardening or just allowing my mind to wander, a character will reveal itself to me with such clarity that I feel as if they are real. When I write of them it's more a sharing of their thoughts then a telling, if you understand my meaning. HOW I KEEP GOING... I'll close with this tidbit...a segment from my dream the other night. Don't be afraid to dream. Fear is a rabid beast with gaping mouth, blood-drenched teeth and a voracious appetite for dreams. Dream on, dear reader! Scarlett
