Maria-Claire Payne here again :)
A bit more about me: Maria-Claire Payne is the alter-ego of another Claire who holds multiple professional credentials related to the field of radiation oncology and a graduate degree in psychology. Both personalities share a love of taking classes in English literature and reading in many genres as well as getting inked and admiring biker dudes from afar. When no new reading material is readily at hand for whatever reason, her children have caught her reading cereal box-tops to fill the void. Maria-Claire lives in Southern Florida with her two rather conservative (how did that happen?) teenagers, the ghost of her soul-mate (her muse), and a crew of Himalayan and Persian cats affectionately referred to as the “Pussy Posse.” See two in the attached picture. Brotherly love!
Speaking of bikers: loud shout-out to the Patriot Guard for all you do for our military heroes!
One of my readers checked out my blurbs and character biographies I posted on my website and asked me if I planned to write other short historicals in the vein of Bending Tyme since she loves historical romance. My response? Absolutely! I enjoy so many genres and time periods myself, and I don't see limiting myself provided I enjoy the research I do for each story -- and I fall in love with my characters along the way!
