A Note from Katharine (or, A Special Sort of Crazy)

Writing fiction is an infinitely fluid process. Even after my books appear in print, characters and events continue to grow and change and surprise me. This is especially the case since all of my books exist in one single fictional world of Regency-era England. New characters often have effects on previous characters and events that I didn’t necessarily anticipate or plan. Which, you know, is hair-raising. Occasionally this exciting (cough-choke) unpredictability results in minor disjunctions in the timeline that unites them all. And so, due to this charming (snort!) ever-changing nature of the storytelling process, the kind reader is encouraged to occasionally allow a slightly malleable quality of dates — especially in characters’ backstories — which when charted on a timeline don’t always entirely match up.

I’m always so happy to hear from readers. If you have a question or comment about this timeline, or about the connections between my stories and the relationships of my characters to each other, I hope you will write to me via the Contact page on this website.

Warmest wishes,
Katharine
