Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.
a)I wrote my first Regency romance novel to entertain my mom who was an invalid. I do write in other genres but prefer to be known for my romances.
2.How long does it take you to write a book, typically?
a)It depends on the depth of the plot but generally a year from start to final editing and completion.
3.Since a lot of romance books show both male and female perspectives, share with us the most difficult thing about writing the perspective of the opposite gender?
a)I don’t have any problems writing from the male perspective. Possibly because I have four brothers?
4.What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
a)I start every romance novel with a catchy title. Nothing else. Then I wait for the story to emerge in my imagination. I’m not sure why I do it this way, but it works for me.
5.Tell us a bit about a future project you are working on? Do you have any little sneak peeks you can share?
a)I’m working on a time travel/murder mystery Regency romance which is absolutely intriguing. I love reading murder mysteries and have always wanted to write one.
6.What is the most romantic date you have ever been on? Or, what is your idea of the perfect Valentine Date?
a)When I first met my husband, we went on a date to a restaurant and were so involved with talking and getting to know each other that we never ordered dinner. The waiter put us in a corner and forgot about us but since we had forgotten about everything else, it was fine.
