Besides the lovely old homes, intriguing shops and other aspects of colonial life, the gardens in Williamsburg are my favorite. The sight, scent and feel of plants grown centuries ago links us to the past in the most living way possible. Not to neglect the reenactors who are a vital part of this unique glimpse into an era that has long held fascination for me. My father remembers visiting his aunt who had an antique shop in Williamsburg ages ago. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there as have countless other young couples over the years. If you’ve never visited historic Williamsburg, you’re in for a real treat.

Love of colonial America inspired my recent release, historical Enemy of the King.
