About Author:

Judith O'Brien

Writing romance novels has got to be the way to make a living in the world What other career allows you to send the kids off to school, walk the dog, and vanish into the most fascinating of historical times and places, with the most glorious of men, to escape danger and find everlasting love for the rest of the day Like most writers, I knew early on that I wanted to be a writer Well, almost Actually, writing was the third choice on my short list of career possibilities, right after Fairy Princess and Prima Ballerina The first two didn t work out So after college I moved to New York, where I worked for Seventeen Magazine Not only had I never really been to New York before, but I believe I was the only editorial assistant in the magazine industry who still wore knee socks Soon I was promoted to Editor of the Letters to the Editor department Yes, there really IS an editor for the letters to the editor column But it allowed me to write articles, answer the personal problems of teens boys and zits were the big topics of concern , and rummage through the back files of the magazine I found Sylvia Plath s original carbon of a short story she submitted while still in high school There were articles on up and coming talents with names like Judy Holiday, Marlon Brando and Elvis And very occasionally I was employed as a last minute makeover subject That was me looking miserable after getting the Brideshead Revisited bob.Then I lucked into a fabulous job as a jacket copy writer at a publishing house called Pocket Books There I first read Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood in manuscript form, and from those I would compose the blurbs for the book covers It was heaven I would read straight through my lunch hour, thus accounting for the chicken salad and iced tea on the returned manuscripts But as much as I loved reading those marvelous stories, what I really wanted to do was to write one Just one Just to see what would happen.Life interfered I went back into magazines, this time at Self as an editor and writer I got married, then had my son I was still on maternity leave, writing general health articles while bouncing a newborn on my knee, that I began to dream once again of writing a romance novel So that is exactly what I did And I modestly claim to have written the most horrendous first three chapters of ANY book, in ANY genre, at ANY time in history Unfortunately, still addled by the turmoil of being a new mom hey, it s an excuse , I actually sent the wretched chapters to agents and publishers.The rejections were polite form letters Dozens of them I shoved them into a bottom drawer and stuck to articles, becoming a free lance writer and full time mom A few years later I gave romance writing another try This time I sent it to only one person, Linda Marrow, with whom I had worked at Pocket Books years earlier I certainly did not expect her to accept the manuscript But I did hope she would let me know which editor at whatever house just might be interested in my time travel romance.Instead, I received a call from Linda three days later, offering me a two book contract.Now I am a single mom My son is twelve I live in Brooklyn And I m lucky enough to write romance novels for a living So please excuse me while I slip into something comfortable Such as Civil War Atlanta, or Tudor England, or Georgian Ireland, or.Did I mention how much I love this job

    I liked, admired and rooted for Constance from the first chapter, she was one of those heroines that I didn't have to warm up to but instantly loved. And the moment she and Joseph meet the sparks fly. Theirs is a delightful relationship full of humor, and tenderness and from the moment they meet you know they belong together. There is absolutely no question that they weren't made for each other. Most of the time when reading a romance I can't figure out why the heck the h/h are falling in love w [...]

    I am ploughing through this, but as an English reader, I am quite annoyed at how Miss O'Brien has clearly read up on big, rather unneccessary details about the sorts of people Prince Edward hung around with, and yet she hasn't bothered to learn simple things like a Prince (such as Charles, Harry or William) is a 'His Royal Highness' and only the Queen is 'Her Majesty'. Why would anyone address the Prince of Wales as HM? Also, it is called a Railway here in England - always has done. We've never [...]
