My first book, MISS PATCH'S LEARN-TO-SEW BOOK, published more than forty years ago, was intended to teach young girls how to knot thread, make a neat stitch, and sew simple items. The main character of my most recent book, THE WILD QUEEN, Mary, Queen of Scots, is a far cry from the roundish, gray-haired lady with a needle in her hand and spectacles on her nose. Since the thrill of seeing that first book in print, I've written over fifty more books, non-fiction and novels (most recently, historical fiction). In the process I've learned more about writing and a lot about history, a subject that was not my favorite when I was a young student but has become my passion--a passion I love to share with readers.

In my opinion, there’s a fascinating YA novel about the teenage Queen Victoria waiting to be written. But this isn’t it. It’s a well-researched biography, and I think Meyer has captured some of the flavor of Victoria’s diaries (lots of CAPITALS and underlined words). The problem is really with appea...

A good book that could only have been written by an ex-racing greyhound owner. Full of funnies that us fellow hound lovers can appreciate. Dash was lucky in that her previous owner and her trainer found her a new home with the author, and so was spared the atrocities that unfortunately go hand in h...

I really do have a soft spot for historical fiction based on the lives of princes and princesses from times past. I can't help daydreaming of the beautiful dresses, the dramatic life at court and the old and majestic traditions. I chose this book because I was in need of a "light read". I expected t...
