Visiting Grosvener Square

I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. This week I rambled through Mayfair with Mary Lancaster from a modest home on Half Moon Street to a shabby past its prime house on Charles Street to the homes of the truly wealthy on Grosvener Square.   As opulent […]

Success! Yet the Work Goes On

Launch week for Storm & Shelter flew by. You may remember last week I reported a fairly grueling weekend leading up to launch day. The pace continued. On launch day, we celebrated with a blog hop–a set of posts linked together in a circle—in which our characters lament the presence of a snooping Teatime Tatter […]
