Hamilton’s charming series is a delightful find!”
– Sheila Connolly, New York Times
never a time when I didn't want to be a writer, and it was how I always
defined myself. But even when I wasn't writing -- which at first was
most of the time! -- I was reading. Since the moment my mom handed me an Agatha Christie book when I was twelve, I've been a devoted mystery fan, and the passion lives on!
It may seem odd, then, that I started my writing career as a Regency
romance author, gradually moving to the paranormal romance, and then
historical mystery writing. I truly enjoyed my time writing romance,
and I believe that it was the perfect training ground to force me to
focus on creating character.
But the urge to write and become published in mysterty still held me
captive. I finally achieved my life's dream with the publication of
the first Vintage Kitchen Mystery: A Deadly Grind, in May of 2012.
Aside from writing, I have a lot of hobbies and passions. I collect
vintage bowls, especially Pyrex and kitchen utensils. I also have a
sizable collection of teacups. Cooking and baking muffins -- of course!
-- are beloved pastimes. I have the best friends and family in the
world, and I am passionately fond of tea and anything sweet, especially
brownies ;-) I enjoy hobbies: crochet, cross-stitch, and beading, among
But writing takes precedence over everything, and I truly love hearing
from readers, treasuring the friends I've made over the years!
So... drop me a line anytime!

Donna Lea Simpson's NEW book!
A Rake's Redemption Classic Regency Romance
the spinster daughter of a vicar, is quietly content to manage the
chores in the household she shares with her father, and tend to the
needs of the less fortunate in their small village. When she discovers
the body of a man who's been badly beaten and robbed on the road near
their cottage, her compassionate nature compels her to take him in and
nurse him back to health. But sheltered as she is from the depravities
of the London ton, she's dismayed to learn that the ruggedly
handsome Hardcastle is a notorious rake and scoundrel-- a man who stirs
unfamiliar, and dangerous, feelings of physical longing within her.
Lord Hardcastle has led a debauched and dissolute
life, taking pleasure from woman at his whim and shrewdly breaking the
fortunes of lesser men in the gambling dens. While on his way to
collect a debt from his latest victim at the card table, he's beset by
highwaymen and left for dead, only to be saved by an angelis creature
as beautiful as she is virtuous. Captivated by the lovely Phaedra, and
shamed by her pure-hearted goodness, he's nonetheless drawn to thoughts
of seductions and concosts a fiendish scheme to coax her to his bed.
As Hardcastle skillfully leads her from genuine
affection to mounting desire, and Phaedra finds her resolve weakening,
she must struggle to defend her virtue against the promise of a deeply
And in a bold gamble that will change both their
lives, Phaedra agrees to wager her innocence against Hardcastle's
dishonorable ways-- as both come to realize that a true and lasting
love hangs in the balance and rests on the turn of a card.
