Here are some things I've written that you're free to download and read, but may only reproduce or distribute with my permission. Thanks!

In celebration of its second year in publication, I'm giving away the first chapter of The French Girl's War. Check out the launch of Sophie's adventure for the first time, or go back and visit old friends. Either way, it's free to you!

In this article, I explore two popular ways writers approach their work: as a plotter (someone who has a careful plan ahead of their writing), or as a pantser (someone who writes by the seat of his or her pants, allowing the muse to guide their writing wherever it goes). I'm neither...and both!

In this article, I share some tools and tips for those writers who wish to take on historical fiction, as I have. I offer insights into my own research process and share my feelings about how writing and research can feed the same impulse of discovery.
