There was 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 other crafts.
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

Donna Lea Simpson's NEW book!
The Duke's Secret
Classic Regency Romances Book #20
and hardened by the betrayal of his late wife and his latest mistress, the
Duke of Alban decides to withdraw from the depressing
swirl of London for a trip to the north, where he can visit his beloved
aunt, and regain the composure that has deserted him. But his hopes for
a serene retreat are dashed by the voluptuous beauty of Kittie Douglas,
the young widow who serves as his aunt's companion, and stirs a deep longing
-- and a deep mistrust -- within him.
Kittie has long heard about the duke's upstanding character, and had
imagined him to be a paragon of male virtue, but meeting the man leaves her
with a distinctly different impression: though he's strikingly handsome,
his late wife's duplicity has left him moody, taciturn, and even suspicious
of her intentions where his well-to-do aunt is concerned. But perhaps most
frustrating is that he's blind to her own upright nature and tender inclinations,
unaware that she harbors a deep wish to soothe his heart and make him whole
As a war wages within Alban between his inability to trust
Kittie and his overwhelming desire to possess her, she struggles to break
through his bitter resolve, tempted all the while to abandon him and her
hopes for a lasting romance. Until a startling revelation from Alban's aunt
shocks them both into realizing what's at stake, and forces Alban to recognize
that if he's to have any chance at happiness, he'll have to open his eyes
-- and his heart -- to Kittie's true beauty and the promise of unwavering
