Some may call it Fan Fiction. What I write is FANTASY Fiction.
I want everyone to know that I write because I love the characters of John Thornton and Margaret Hale. I cannot get enough of the grand love story. My books are intended to be auxiliary books (fantasies, if you will) of these character, in their towns, with the same people, but are *NEW* loves stories. They are not continuations from the Gaskell story. They are to fall in love again and again in new situations. Their love for each other is powerful. There are intimate scenes in nearly all of the books. If you are a romance reader, you know this is a common practice. There is real intimacy between them but has not and will never be the main focal point in my books. These books are not serialized and can be read in any order because they are all different and unique stories. I am not a professional author and consider myself more of a story-teller or novelist than an author. I am already hearing about favored new characters that are introduced and people asking for a second book to follow up on a particular title. I thank my many readers and love hearing from all of you.

Being totally swept away by the Elizabeth Gaskell novel, and BBC Production of North and South with the characters of John Thornton and Margaret Hale from the mill town of Milton, I want to keep the dream alive.
Not being a professional writer, I feel my writing is very simplistic, and spend most of my words extending the story, rather than on long winded descriptions.
My sole goal is to bring more of the story, more romance and more love, without changing the characters. I am not looking for recognition or fame or even profit. I want North and South fans to have something to embrace the fantasy and advance the love story.
