Romance author Cait O'Sullivan reveals all!

I'm thrilled to welcome back romance author, Cait O'Sullivan .  A wonderful friend and critique partner for many years, I've jumped at the chance to quiz her following the release of her first novel, Romancing the Seas , a brilliant, fast paced read full of tension. Of the romantic kind, of course... ;-) So, here's the Q&A with the lovely Cait. Enjoy! 1. How did you become a writer? Funnily enough, I think I always have been a writer but it's only as I've grown up that I realised it. you know the way when you're young you think that everyone is good at the things you're good at and that everybody relies on writing as a means of expression. It was only after I travelled the world that I found that not to be the case. So then  I decided when my youngest was born that now was the time to devote to following my dream to write. 2. Describe your perfect hero! He'd be rugged, weather beaten, a man with a chiseled jaw who is happy to get lost

For Love of Sarah - Hazel Statham

Today, I'm hosting regency romance author  Hazel Statham on her successful blog tour promoting her latest release, For Love of Sarah . Hazel has offered some fabulous prizes - including jewellery! Tempted? Read on! But first of all, here's Hazel telling us who inspired her writing... Inspiring Authors of Regency Romance When I first started writing I was influenced by authors such as the Bronte sisters, Austen and Sabatini but when I read my first Regency Romance , Regency Buck by Georgette Heyer, I knew I had found my era.   Heyer has remained my main inspiration ever since and I am never more pleased than when my writing is likened to hers.   I love her wit and humour and the ability she has to bring the romance and elegance of the period alive to her readers.   However, Regency isn’t the only era she portrays and all her books are as historically correct as she can make them whether it be The Peninsular War or the Battle of Hastings, with only a few minor erro

Gambling on a Secret with Sara Walter Ellwood

I'm delighted to welcome romantic suspense author Sara Walter Ellwood to My Place. She chats about an old Western town, Colton in Texas. Fascinating! Sara is also doing a giveaway on her blog tour so read on for your chance to win! So, without further ado, we delve into the wild west... Welcome to Colton, Texas! When you crack open the cover of Gambling On A Secret , you are also opening the door to the little town of Colton in Forest County, Texas. A place seeped in history and Texas pride. So, in good Southern hospitality, c’mon in, hang your hat, and grab a glass of sweet tea—or a long neck bottle of brew or even a shot glass Jack. I’ll show you around. Forest County gets its name from the oak forests that covered the land along the creeks running through it, but the majority of the land is grassland. Colton comes from the shortening of the original name for the cattle town Cole’s Town. The frontier town was nothing more than a Southern Baptist Church, a general
