Writing Articles

This section includes information I collected when doing my research for my Regency novels and I thought it might be fun to share.  Even folks who have no intention of ever writing a novel, much less a historical novel, may find the information interesting. In addition, I've had requests for information from other writers who have decided to seriously pursue publication, so I'm expanding this section to include information on topics such as passive voice. Over the next few months, I'll be writing blogs about writing for publication. Although there are a lot of blogs for "newbie authors" there are some topics and experiences that I've had that have not been mentioned elsewhere, and its those things I intend to share. So stay tuned.

Big Note for Rose Lovers: I finally got my hands on a copy of Jules. Gravereaux's 1912 list of the roses grown at Malmaison, La Malmaison. les roses de l'impératrice Jospéhine. With that in hand, I'll be posting a list of those roses, along with other relevant information. Sadly, while there was never a list made of the roses grown at Malmaison during it's height, Gravereaux made the best attempt at creating such a list.. The list is under construction now and I'll be building it out over time. If you love roses, be sure to check it out: Roses Grown at Malmaison.

Of course, since I was also the editor for my local rose society newsletter at one time, much of this is geared toward gardening and roses!  Sorry, I can't always control where my fancy will lead.  Hope you find something of interest.
