What to tell you about me?

My writing career began, as many have, with fanfiction. While some of these stories are here, the majority can be found on Fanfiction.net under the pen name: Eclectic Butterfly.

Though I have a few fanfiction stories here, my main writing is in the historical genre. My main love is the Regency era, so a lot of my stories are set there.

Standalone Stories:
Emily's Choice (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad, available in full on Amazon, Apple, Google, Kobo, and Overdrive).

A Chaotic Courtship (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available in full on Amazon, Apple, Google, Kobo, Overdrive).

My Hands Hold My Story (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available in full on Amazon, Apple, Google, Kobo, Overdrive).

The Opera Singer's Daughter (complete on Wattpad).

~A Gentleman of Misfortune Series~
1. Not My Idea (currently complete on Wattpad, but an Audible audiobook is on Amazon)
2. Best Laid Plans (currently complete on Wattpad)

~The Sinclair Society Series and accompanying novellas~
1. Regency Rumors (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available exclusively on Amazon...for now)
1.5 Eugenia (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available exclusively on Amazon...for now)
2. The Debutante (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available exclusively on Amazon...for now)
2.5 Grace (First Chapter Preview on Wattpad; available exclusively on Amazon...for now)
3. Chasing the Future AKA Clarendon Estate...soon to be leaving Wattpad for Amazon.

Alright. Technically, Lady Evan Wins the Day is a followup to Emily's Choice, but it stands alone so I am leaving it like that for now.
