Inside scoop: Eloise!

There’s a little scene in The Worst Duke in the World which was inspired by this indelible scene from one of my favorite books of all time, Eloise. Even after all these years, it never fails to crack me up!

“Stop it at once, Eloise.”

Meet Mr. Pressley!

Writing is a curious (and often mysterious) process. It wasn’t till I saw the galleys for The Worst Duke in the World that I suddenly realized that one of my favorite secondary characters, the charming vicar Mr. Pressley, was inspired — both in temperament and in appearance — by this delightful fella.

The latest on The Worst Duke in the World

As a reader, do typos just pop right out at you? Or do you have to really look for them? I’m currently reading the galleys of The Worst Duke in the World and trying to stay very eagle-eyed. Which is rather difficult when one is enchanted by beautiful design. (If you spot any typos, please let me know!)
