DEAR FRIENDS,

I hope spring has arrived where you are. 
 
I just finished working on the third Royal Wedding Story and sent it off to my editor. This time, the wedding(s) in question are those of two of King Edward III’s younger sons, John, Duke of Lancaster, and Edmund, later Duke of York. The brothers married sisters, heirs to the throne of Castile (Spain).  And the hero of the new book is someone you may recognize: Gilbert from WHISPERS AT COURT.

I hope to be able to say more about the story soon, so sign up for my newsletter (left) to get the scoop. I only send it when there’s news to share, so don’t worry about getting too much mail.

While I'm waiting for my editor's input, here's a little of what's to come. 

  • The Chicago North RWA Spring Fling Conference features a book signing, open to the public, on Saturday, May 21st from 3-5pm., at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, Chicago, 1800 East Golf Road, Schaumburg, Illinois, USA, 60173. It will feature Robyn Carr, Christina Lauren, Courtney Milan, and dozens of others. Come visit!
  •  I will be one of four historical authors signing at Anderson’s in Naperville on Sunday, May 22, at 2 p.m. This in-store event is free and open to the public. Visit the Anderson's Bookstore website for more information.
  • I’m also scheduled for the annual literacy signing at the Romance Writers of America conference. The 2016 Literacy Autographing event will be July 13, 2016, at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, San Diego, California. All proceeds go to support literacy, so if you are there, please stop by to say hello. Details here: https://www.rwa.org/literacy
