Give a Man a Good Ship & He Can Do Great Things!

Admiral Nelson 2

Ahoy, me hearties! As you all know my passion for Admiral Nelson runs deep. After years of researching the man, his life, his passions, and the ship that propelled him to infamy, I still hunger for more. As a result, he is the heart of my Nelson’s Tea Series.


While I’m finishing up the last full-length book, THE ROGUE’S SURRENDER, I’m still digging into Nelson’s past. Never a dull moment. I can’t explain it but there it is. So imagine my delight when Lady Catherine Curzon had an opening on her blog, A Covent Garden’s Gilfurt’s Guide to Life. Huzzah!!! I jumped at the chance to write about one of the greatest tactical minds in naval history.

Release Day! Jack Interviews Swashbuckling Author of Honor Among Thieves ~ J.M. AUCOIN!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

article-2420767-15A9308B000005DC-446_306x423Captain Jack Sparrow knows the importance of honing swashbucklin’ skills. Livin’ off the seas isn’t easy after all. There ARR plenty of obstacles in a pirate’s path. Marooning, keelhauling, undead monkeys, curses, the Kraken, Davy Jones’ Locker, and greedy pirates pillagin’ and plunderin’ their weasely guts out ARR problematic. So if more swashbuckle be needed, who you gonna call?

Katherine: “There be one with the knack — Captain Jake Hawking.”

Where are you from:

As an Army brat, I lived all over the world, including Germany, Japan and back to Germany again as a teenager. As an Army wife, I lived in Italy and Germany, including all over the US. There is something FANtastical about walking along castle ramparts, treading the very ground where the Renaissance took place. I felt the connection even as a young 12 year old standing in Heidelberg Castle.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

I’d love to tell you about my latest release, the 2nd novella in my Nelson’s Tea Series, My Lady Rogue (March 2015)

Everything Simon and Gillian have done has led to this moment… Will it be too late?

Baroness Gillian Chauncey thought she’d seen everything during her years of devotion to England…

Katherine’s Podcast Interview at Indy Film Wisconsin’s Writer Wednesday!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Just back from a wonderful beach vacation at Gulf Shores, AL! I adore it when my family can all get together. Only two things could have made our vacation better, my oldest son and his crew being able to join us from Japan and a bit more sunshine. (Out of a week of overcast skies, we only had two good days of sun. Boo!) But I’m not complaining. No. Just being together made all the difference.

Adding further enjoyment, there were no undead monkey sightings. Woot!!!

I’ll post some pictures in the coming days.

In the meantime, I’m extremely honored to announce I was a featured guest on Wayne Clingman’s podcast show Indy Film Wisconsin Writer Wednesday today. Yeeaauuss!!! Thank you, Pirate Wayne, for being such an awesome host!

If you’re interested in my take on writing, why I write historical romance, and my thoughts about the process, you can find my podcast at:

Until next time, I wish you fair skies and glorious adventures!

The Royal Princess of Cambridge ~ Charlotte Elizabeth Diana!


, , , , , , , , , ,

AVAST and here Ye! Here Ye! The Princess of Cambridge has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana! Huzzah and Hoorah! Lovely legacy for Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandchild and Princess Diana’s first granddaughter and a wonderful choice for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

I must admit I’m confused however. References are being made that Charlotte has been chosen in honor of Prince Charles. Hasn’t anyone in the media made the connection between the names George and Charlotte? Or am I just a Regency Romance author who gets jazzed about history coming to life? *grin*

Brain Boosters for Writers!


, , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been doing a lot of pondering lately about my life and how much time I spend at the computer or writing in one of my book bibles. So many stories to write, so little time seems to be my mantra these days. Black Sails just ended. (Major bummer! Shout out #BlkSailsBrethren!) Outlander is back on. (Yeeaauuss!) I’ve discovered the new Daredevil series on Netflix. (OMG!!! So addictive!) I’ve got several DVDs on sailing ships, the Captain Horatio Hornblower Series with Ioan Gruffald (Swoon!) and several others to watch. Bitten is back!!! (Love Clay!) Penny Dreadful is returning. (Who doesn’t want to find out more about Josh Hartnet’s character?) And of course, there are several great shows I like to watch on t.v. It’s so hard to stay focused, especially with so many media outlets vying to capture my attention online and off. I love it all!

One of my favourite tropes is an adventure at sea. I know that modern day pirates are horrible and scary, but there is something about being on the highseas in the previous centuries that makes for a great book.


The seas have always been great fodder for stories. Master and Commander and Robinson Crusoe are vintage stories at sea. Modern day fascination has given us Black Sails and The Pirates of the Caribbean series and show our continued interest in this genre. I remember going on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World as a child and wondering what it would be like to travel by a large ship to a hidden Caribbean getaway. When I started reading historical romance books, one of my favourite genres became the time spent aboard a ship.

After visiting the USS Constitution this summer in Boston, quite a few of my romantic…
