Welcome back author Diane Scott Lewis!!

What would you say are your strengths as an author?
Accurate research and attention to detail. And I’m always willing to learn.

How often do you write, and do you write using a strict routine?
I write every morning, all morning. I pick this time because my mind is at its sharpest. Though with our new puppy, things get hectic.

Five years from now, where do you see yourself as a writer?
Several best sellers and a home in Tahiti. Actually, to be respected for my craft and a steady string of well-sold novels.

If you could offer once piece of advice to a novice writer, what would it be?
Perfect your craft. Take workshops, attend conferences, read books on writing and grammar (so many writers don’t even know the basic format for dialogue punctuation). And never give up.

What would you consider to be the best compliment a reader could give your book?
That they loved my characters and, since I write historicals, my story put them right in the era with no historical bloopers.

Which books and authors do you read for pleasure? Is there an author that inspires you?
I read Katheryn Pym, Anita Davison, Colleen Donnelly and Julie Howard. Pym's historic research inspires me. She puts you right into the era of her characters.


Forced from France by her devious guardian on the eve of the French Revolution, Countess Bettina Jonquiere must deliver an important package to further the royalist cause. In England, she discovers the package is full of blank papers, the address false and she’s penniless. Stranded in a Cornish village, Bettina toils in a bawdy tavern and falls in love with a man who may have murdered his unfaithful wife. Tracked by ruthless revolutionaries, she must uncover the truth about her father’s murder—and her lover’s guilt—while her life is threatened.
(Historical Novels Reviews: Simply Brilliant) 


Sequel to Escape the Revolution. In 1796, ruined countess Bettina Jonquiere leaves England after the reported drowning of her lover, Everett.  In New Orleans she struggles to establish a new life for her children. Soon a ruthless Frenchman demands the money stolen by her father at the start of the French Revolution. Bettina is forced on a dangerous mission to France to recover the funds. She unravels dark family secrets, but will she find the man she lost as well?
