On Researching her Historical Romances
The moment I first entered Cornwall in 1994, crossing the Tamar River in a rental car with my author friend Ciji Ware, I felt as if I had found a magical place that would change my life. My first glimpse of the Fowey area, with the English Channel in the distance, only made that feeling stronger. I’ve traveled back to stay in historic cottages around Fowey 5 times now… and the result is my latest novel, SMUGGLER’S MOON.
When I’ve been in Cornwall, I could imagine that I was back in 1798 with my characters. I modeled my Smuggler’s Moon hero Sebastian’s Trevarre Hall after the real-life Hall Farm, and the ruined 1370 chapel was inspired by the real ruins of a similar chapel that my husband and I stumbled across inside the fences of Hall Farm. The views from the famous Hall Walk (above, where Charles I was fired at from across the River Fowey) are spectacular – don’t you agree?
I’m working on a new novel, also set in Cornwall and her sister region of Brittany, France. I was lucky enough to travel back to Cornwall and France this past June for more research – one of the best benefits of being a writer!
