I enjoy pottering about in the garden too, getting out in the fresh air and seeing things grow. And a few years ago, I started going to ballroom dance lessons, as a way to keep fit, and also as an activity that my husband and I could do together. Which authors have most influenced your work? And which do you choose to read for pleasure? I absolutely adore the historical works of Georgette Heyer. I re-read my collection until they drop to bits and I have to buy new editions. Wodehouse, Harlen Coben… How do you develop your characters?

In historicals, how do you keep them in period yet sympathetic to readers? In fact, a backdrop is all it can be, with the vibrant romance taking centre stage. I try to create authenticity by creating characters with a regency mindset. They are people who routinely go to church, have no knowledge of the technology we take for granted, and who are much closer to the land than we are today. If they have a problem, they have no recourse to Oprah, or Cosmopolitan.

They just have to muddle through on their own, often without being able to share their deepest, darkest woes with anyone at all. So things which nowadays could be straightened out relatively easily, can become huge stumbling blocks to personal growth. She was afraid of, and disliked men, but also bore a huge burden of guilt herself.

I am writing for a modern audience, who would find it hard going ploughing through the tortuous sentence structures that writers of the period would have used. But I do try very hard to avoid glaring anachronisms. Which suggests the period, whilst remaining accessible to a modern reader. What advice would you give a new writer? Keep your dream alive by talking to, and mixing with other writers. Keep practicing and honing your craft. Tell us about your latest book, and how you got the idea for it?

I always have loads of ideas stashed away in notebooks, of openings for stories, or dramatic scenes, or interesting characters with nowhere to go.

I browsed through my collection, and pretty soon came across two characters that I had known for a while ought to be together. The idea of making the heroine a governess was like the final piece of a puzzle slotting into place. But, like so many of my heroines, once I gave her room on the page, she took off in a slightly different direction.

But they did gel together remarkably swiftly, and what followed was a joy to write. Because, I have to tell you, there was no way to control either of them, I just had to stand well back and describe what they got up to. Can you tell us something of your work in progress?

It took me 8 books to write one that was publishable, though. To plot or not to plot? How much of a planner are you?

In the early days, I plotted a lot. Once I realised the plot changed while writing, I let myself go a little and did less. I have an idea of the story, jot down a few incidents and then let the characters take me where they will. But that was fun.

What do you think an editor is looking for in a good novel? If a novel has that, then minor matters can be handled. I tend to write first draft with my Alphasmart on my knees and the PC open at my cue sheet ie such plot as I have, plus cast names and places, ideas, etc. Do you write every day? I try to get three working days in the week and usually write best in the afternoons.

Do you have interests other than writing? I think you need them to feed your imagination and develop your knowledge of the human condition. Just get it down. The only way to learn to write is to write. So write. The Gilded Shroud is a new departure for me, entering the crime arena. An aristocrat is murdered in her bed, her husband is missing and Lord Francis, her brother-in-law, has to pick up the pieces.

My brother suggested it could work as crime, but I just left it on the back burner for years. When I decided to change genre, this was the obvious starting point. When the guardian turns up dead, Ottilia is on hand once again, with Francis in support, to find out whodunnit.

With the way publishing works, I shall soon be moving on to book four! Thank you for talking to us, Elizabeth. We wish you good luck with your new crime series.

I really enjoyed this one. Take into account that Marcus Copeland is a lumber mill owner.

Kindle Editions

They had trees in Northern Arizona in ? Marcus is sitting in on the Morrow Creek's Mens Club when it is decided that he should be the one to approach Molly Crabtree to find out who is the matchmaker in town. The matchmaker is advising women about being free to approach a certain man [of their dreams] and is turning the lives of the Morrow Creek bachelors up-side down. The matchmaker was using Adam Crabtree's Pioneer Press to place personal advertisments. The men's complaints are hilarious.

Jack Murphy, who owns the saloon, has to deal with the suffregette, Grace Crabtree and Daniel McCabe, the blacksmith, is definitely showing interest in Sarah Crabtree, the teacher. Marcus ends up helping Molly's enterprise of a bakery when he gives money to his lumber men to buy her baking efforts.

Oh, Oh! Molly is an indepentant, stubborn 22 year old who wants equility in business dealings. You won't believe her accounting system. It turns out that her parents encourage more freedom in their daughters than is granted a female of their times. This leads to hilarious thinking on the girls part that is not understandable to the men of Morrow Creek. It takes Molly and Marcus to figure out each others short comings and help in understanding compromises. What a highly enjoyable story - and does demand follow-ups of the other two sisters. What a great read and a wonderful introduction to Harlequin's new Historicals line with a western theme.

This story is about Marcus Copeland a hardworking mill owner and Molly Crabtree youngest of three daughters and aspiring bakery owner. I was tempted to not read this book because I saw the word "historical", but I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad I did.
