Connected Books

Are your books part of a series? Do I need to read them in any specific order?

Readers inquire all the time about the connections in my novels. Currently, there are two specific series – The Ellinghams and The McKennas. Beyond that, the rest of my titles are stand alone stories. Therefore, it isn’t necessary to read one book to understand the plot/characters of another, nor is it necessary to read the books in any particular order.

However, there are cross-over characters in many of my Regency and Scottish novels. Some make brief appearances in several books; others are secondary characters in one novel and then a main character in another.

For those readers who are interested, listed below is a brief explanation of the various connections in the books:
