What a Week It’s Been!

What a week it’s been and it’s still only Thursday. It seems this website went live just at the right time. For a while my writing world has been a bit like the swan…serene on the surface but mad scrabbling beneath. Oh yes, I have been busy! I may still appear to be calm but believe me the scrabbling has increased in intensity – but in a good way.

If you read my previous post below you will know I have been eagerly anticipating publication by https://saperebooks.com/ of my Regency romance, The Reluctant Bride. Not only is Charlotte’s story now available for pre-order https://amzn.to/3c86lGq but I also have a publication date. 6th April 2021. A little more than two months away, I suspect the time will fly by.

In the meantime, I’m working on a couple of short stories, one of which I’m hoping to give as a freebie with my one-but-next newsletter. It won’t be ready for the next one but hey, why not subscribe now to be sure of receiving your copy. Just click on ‘Sign Up’ at the top of this page.

Hope to see you soon



Welcome to my new website. I hope you’ll bear with me while I learn my way around. Like any new venture it needs some tender loving care but, as I get to grips with it, I’m hoping you will join me on my journey.

January 2021 isn’t just the beginning of a new year but a prelude to what promises to be a very busy one for me. I’m currently in the middle of edits for The Reluctant Bride, the first of four Regency romances soon to be published by https://saperebooks.com/. Below is a small snippet about each. Charlotte’s story will be available for pre-order shortly and available in the spring.

Written in the flowing language of the era, The Reluctant Bride tells the story of Charlotte, a young woman who is forced by her ambitious father into marriage with an earl. Within six weeks she is widowed and must find her own way in society, frustrated by the interference of her husband’s cousin and heir who proves to be a thorn in her side.

When Prudence loses her beloved father to suicide and is left without a home she resolves with only a small legacy to stand on her own two feet. What else can she do When Only Pride Remains?

Sophie is twenty-one years old when she learns that her life has been a sham. Shunned by society but with a spirit that will not be broken, The Girl with Flaming Hair is determined to overcome every challenge that is thrown at her.

The Ghost of Glendale (released previously under the same title) is a delightful romp in which Phoebe and her beau, Duncan, try to resolve the mystery of why her several times great grandfather’s spirit cannot rest in peace.

In the meantime, to see what I’m up to elsewhere follow the links on the Contact page of this site. And why not follow my Blog and subscribe to my Newsletter for news of books and bargains.

Hope to see you soon

So here we are again, Elaine, five months since we last met for tea and another book for us to talk about. And what a book it is! I thought you’d lost the power to surprise me but in giving us Ruby’s story you’ve crafted an immaculately written novel in A Mother Forever, bearing in … Continue reading Tea Time with Elaine Everest

In the name of Research Almost exactly a year ago I went with my sister to the V&A with the specific aim of seeking out all things Regency. I’m very lucky to live on the edge of London within striking distance of all it has to offer. On a very blustery and quite unpleasant day, … Continue reading

Don’t Get Me Started! Language evolves all the time. As a historical novelist I know this – and the rules (there are rules) change. I accept that. But, being a bit long in the tooth, it took me many years to do so and even more to implement some of those changes into my writing. … Continue reading
