Author Details

Where I Live
Florida
My mother was a highly successful author of children's books, and for many years it never occurred to me it was possible to have two authors in the same family. I pursued a career in music, as teacher and performer, touring in the first National Company of The Sound of Music. But only when my children were off to college did I seriously consider trying my own hand at writing. And discovered I loved it. To be able to create people, even whole worlds from the imagination is a never-ending joy.

I was fortunate enough to win a number of writing awards, but after nine print books, in 2011 I plunged into the world of e-books and never looked back. It offers a level of creative freedom not to be found anywhere else. As Blair Bancroft, I have become best known for books set in the Regency period (early 19th c.)—Regency Gothics, Regency Historicals, Traditional Regencies, and a series that reveals the darker side of the Regency era (The Aphrodite Academy). I also write SciFi/Fantasy/Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, and Mystery, with a Medieval Young Adult and a Steampunk thrown in for good measure. (I do enjoy experimenting with new genres.)

I now have more than forty books available through online vendors, including a non-fiction compilation of all the Writing and Editing tips posted to my blog since 2011 (Making Magic with Words).

I am an outspoken advocate of "out of the mist" writing. One of my favorite sayings: I can hardly wait to sit down to my computer each morning and find out what my characters are going to do today.
