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.
