What I’ve Been Up To

The simple answer is, writing – so I’ve seen a lot of these lovely sunrises from my window, but not much else. Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and I have been working on our second book together, so for the last few months there’s been barely a day when we’ve not spoken, emailed or WhatsApped …

What I’ve Been Reading

I don’t have a lot of time for reading at the moment, so I’ve mostly been turning to comfort reads in my fiction, and continuing with three quite different detective series that I’ve been very much enjoying. Hangman’s Holiday (Lord Peter Wimsey 9) by Dorothy Sayers is a bit of a pick and mix of …

Quite Literally Talking Books

During November I appeared at a number of literary festivals with my friend and co-author the Duchess of York to talk about our collaboration on HER HEART FOR A COMPASS.

REGENCY CHRISTMAS LIAISONS features three brand new romances, from me, Christine Merril and Sophia James. In my story, A MOST SCANDALOUS CHRISTMAS I have my first ever Welsh hero and a …

New Release and a Giveaway!

Out now, in paperback and digital, in the UK, the US, Canada and Australia. THE EARL WHO SEES HER BEAUTY is the first book in my new Victorian duet, REVELATIONS OF THE CARSTAIRS SISTERS. In this romance (which I think might be book number fifty-five), I have a scarred heroine with an interest in plumbing, …

What I’ve Been Up To
