I have four of her novels in their original trade 1970s releases. The covers are very cool, all willowy and Klimt-like; and one in its original hardcover about Henry VIII's fool, Will Somers (it's eerily like Margaret George's premise for "Autobiography of Henry VIII, written years later). I really ...

I'm reading an ARC of C.C. Humphrey's "Vlad: The Last Confession" about the historical Dracula. It's intense and very atmospheric; pub date for Canada is 9/10 and 2/09 in the UK. Not sure about a US pub date. He wrote a book called "The French Executioner" about the man who beheaded Anne Boleyn. "Vl...

I have a Welsh Pembroke Corgi named Paris, whom I raised since she was eight weeks old. She came to me a few days after the death of my previous dog, Cha Cha, which had left me quite bereft. She's so bright and loving, and very fiesty. When I write, she sits at my feet. After two hours she nudges me...

I speak and write Spanish fluently; have a little French and a smidgen of Italian. I love languages; if I had to choose a language I'd like to know as fluently as I do Spanish, it would definitely be French. Italian is pretty sexy, too ;)

Hi Vanessa, Very nice to meet you. Love your avatar! I believe the UK paperback pub date has been changed to January '09. However, the UK hardcover (a limited edition for libraries, mostly) has been released and there's also a large trade pb export edition available, but I can't seem to locate it on...

Thanks!

Thanks all. I've been exploring the forum a bit and really like the new additions. I'm hoping to have some more free time now that I've delivered my next manuscript to share some of my current reading choices and to just chat!

Nice new digs

Hi all, the new site looks great! I'm delighted to be back; Marg and Carla left me invites at my blog, telling me of the demise of the old site and Susan B. gracefully assisted me in my ham-handed attempts to log in ( I needed to re-register, of course. Silly me) A hearty thank you and congratulatio...
