MBS Blogoversary SPOTLIGHT #17 Author Danielle Thorne


I met Danielle through The Sweetest Romance Authors Group. Danielle writes Historical Romance. One of my early 2009 reviews was for a contemporary romance, Turtle Soup.
Today I posted a review for her most recent Historical Romance, Josette.

I asked each author to answer two questions for their spotlight.
The first I asked and the second they provided

Question #1:  Why do you write/what do you hope your readers get from your books?

A:  I love to create adventures and characters that find themselves, and I strive to incorporate unique settings that make the reader want to visit there. A bit of a tree hugger, I try to work environmental awareness into my themes. I care deeply about people and the planet. I guess you could say I try to share the love.

Question #2: What do you enjoy most about Regency romances? The clothes, the countryside, or the society? 

A:  I admire the Regency era because of etiquette and expectations. It was also a time of great Naval power, and I love the Age of Sail. This was a time when men were gentlemen and women were ladies. It took courage to find love and to marry for it. It took courage, for a woman to stand up and be independent. People visited one another more, letter-writing was an art. Despite the hardships of this century, especially for the poor, life was lived with a simplicity centered around nature and the arts. I could have done without the corsets, but I adore the dress of the period. How I love an empire-waisted gown!
