    MacLaoch Wednesday: Hope

    As you can see from yesterday’s post I spent a relaxing weekend at a beautiful lake secluded in the mountains. The beauty of being secluded is that I have time to reflect, time to pontificate on all things. And you know what I was thinking? The Legend of Lady MacLaoch 2. Yes, in the middle of Doug Fir trees the second book came to me. Writing furiously I met several new characters that I’ll introduce to you such as relatives that Cole didn’t realize she’d had, a little old woman who reads tea leaves, a handsome undergraduate researcher and a woman from London that Rowan shouldn’t have forgotten about… Anyway,…

    MacLaoch Wednesday

    Rowan on a leisurely stroll through Castle Laoch. . .  Two weeks ago I recieved a lovely email from a woman who was doing 16th century Scottish reenactments here in the US. She was thoroughly enjoying The Legend of Lady MacLaoch but had one thing she wanted to point out regarding chiefs and chieftains, something she felt was incorrectly represented in the book. I.e. – Rowan is the MacLaoch Clan’s chief, not necessarily it’s chieftain. The chief of a clan as you would assume is the overarching leader of the clan, or as wikipedia (aka – the all knowing master of the universe) says: “The clan chief is the representative of [the clan’s] founder,…

    MacLaoch Wednesday: Nicole Baker

    Nudes picking peaches. Image via Today let’s dive into the Baker family. The Legend of Lady MacLaoch’s theme of surprise family bloodlines is based, in part, on my own experience with it. Similar to Nicole’s (Cole) experience, my own grandfather one afternoon while we were all gathered around, was telling us about our great aunt so-and-so and mentioned casually that by blood we are not Banks’. Like the Bakers (close in name too…) that announcement came as a shock. We are an obnoxious, opinionated and charming bunch that take being Banks’ seriously. It’s a trait and such a strong one that my husband can go through all my relatives that…
