The Missing Duke

  1. I am an author with a passion for history and in particular the Regency I have my own voice, but I like to follow traditional Regency precepts and pen uplifting stories with flowing prose, witty dialogue, engaging characters and bags of emotion following with tiny steps in the magnificent wake of Georgette Heyer.I live in a beautiful rural part of the UK and share my home with various life forms, including two ponies, three cats and a rescued Staffie X When I am not writing, I enjoy long walks with my dog, watching costume dramas and curling up with a good book.From a small child, I have loved to write and dream In my bedroom I had a wallpaper with flower edged squares just perfect for writing my news I don t think my mother was very impressed, although I don t recall any major consequences.I discovered Georgette Heyer in my early teens and in my opinion, there are few in the modern era who come close, let alone match her in the Regency genre We can but aspire, as a friend once said My debut novel was A Sense of the Ridiculous , a traditional Regency Romance released originally by Musa Publishing and I m excited that I will soon be re releasing it with a new cover.Writing as Vandalia Black, I also pen Vampire and Shape Shifter romances.
