Nathaniel Hawthorne once bitterly opined that the writing profession is plagued by “a damned mob of scribbling women.” I am quite content to be in their number.

If, like me, you adore Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, you are likely a Regency buff. The Regency was a fascinating period in England from 1811 to 1820, when King George III was deemed unfit and his son—later George IV—was Prince Regent.

He was a much-lampooned figure who spent lavishly at a time when people were starting to resent it. Austen, their contemporary, mined the period for satire. More than a century later Heyer’s novels put her stamp on the era.

My own love of the period has inspired research trips to England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, France and other countries. This photo was taken on the Isle of Skye, during a hike over a moody pebble beach that challenged my cartilage-free knees (hence the walking sticks).

I hope this finds you healthy and renewed.
