Sartorial elegance? Maybe not......
Happy Sunday everyone! The sun really is shining outside, though it’s still fresh
enough to need some sort of arm cover protection against the slightly gusting
wind. At around 10°C, it could be called a typical late spring or early summer
temperature. From ...

Introduction
Nancy writes historical romantic adventures set in northern Roman Britain in the late first century - her Celtic Fervour Series. Contemporary romantic mysteries are also a joy to write, especially when she can incorporate some historical aspects (ancestral tree mysteries) or wonderful contemporary locations around the world. Her Rubidium Time Travel adventure series is for Middle Grade/ YA and above, the first book of which is set in 'Scotland' AD 210 during the era when Roman Emperor Severus campaigned in northern Britannia with legions of ancient Roman troops. Current writing includes adventures set in Roman Britain, Victorian Glasgow and a family saga set mainly in Scotland from 1850.
Bragging rights
TOPAZ EYES, a contemporary mystery, was a Finalist in THE PEOPLE'S BOOK PRIZE 2014.
