Building a Bridge

… and a hell of a lot of other amusing things, as I find myself buried under a ever growing mountain of research. I’ve somewhat insanely decided to throw my hat in the ring for Harlequin’s Historical Romance “Warriors Wanted” Blitz.

Honestly, I’m a tad scared. It’s taken days to get to this point. I have 25 point very rough synopsis that needs some TLC.

Two main characters I don’t really know… and yet… I’m still drawn, irrevocably so, to Wales – yet again. It doesn’t take much, really. Wales is in my blood. Granted, only 25%… down from my maternal grandmother, but still.

What period? Well… that would be telling. And just for now I’m keeping it a secret. I’ll reveal my chosen time period And lots more in another blog post.
