I like to write romances set in a timeless present, featuring interesting characters and stories which endure. I believe that classic romances will always remain popular.
Sometimes, however, the world moves on… and some stories become dated. Usually that happens because technology changes. I’m old enough to remember when a hard drive meant ambition and not computer storage, and when cell phones came in bags or looked like a big block of cheese, and when architects used pencils and rulers (and thought an electric eraser was a big advancement) instead of computer-assisted design. But attitudes have changed as well.
In republishing my early books, I have opted not to update the technology or the characters’ outlooks but to leave the story as written. These stories are categorized here as “accidental historicals” — because though they were set in the current day when they were written, times have changed enough to make certain aspects seem quaint.
