When King Richard III must contend with his unruly sister Margaret, he can only groan for she is clever, opinionated, and willful. She has always preferred explanations and reasoning to merely obeying commands.
But Margaret, now the Duchess of Burgundy, has an important quest. She has recently found that her acts of charity and good intentions have not received the recognition they deserve, and she is determined to reshape her legacy. If along the way, she can experience some genuine romance—something her tyrant of a husband could never provide—all the better. Or so she assumes, until she meets Charlie, the most exasperating of men.
Little does she expect to spend days on end with just him for company.
The Defiant Duchess is royally engaging, fantasy historical fiction about an incredible woman and her pursuit of fulfilment.

Being an author is a career change for me. I once was an expert . . . uh, let us just say in a graduate scientific field . . . that no longer interests me to write about. I found, much to my personal amazement, that I preferred scribbling historical fiction novels. Especially if they made me laugh while I was either researching or writing them.
My family lives in a DC suburb, but I enjoy travelling and visiting, in particular, our Estes Park, Colorado, cabin adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park. The dogs usually come with me for the thirty-hour drive because I despise flying and motorcar everywhere I can. So why not give the pooches a vacation as well?
My family thinks I am a bit nuts in this regard and they fly everywhere they can. So I am the doggy transporter while they meet me at the chosen destination. Of course, this does not always work out, depending on where that vacation site actually is, and I have been known to fly, but I am not especially fond of the looks I get from surrounding passengers as I grip my seat.
