Ooh, I’d love to meander around here. (Although I’d avoid the “Dunk the author” part!)

Inspiration!

In case you missed it from my recent newsletter: I’m envisioning the hero of the book I’m currently writing — The Worst Duke in the World — looking like a combination of these two delightful fellas.

And the winners are . . .

If you’ve been hanging out on Twitter lately, you may have seen the fun tagging game in which people are invited to share the names of their three favorite films — without any explanatory text. I was tagged by fellow author Anna J. Stewart . . . and here are mine. (Keeping in mind there were several other contenders I longed to include!)
