About the author:
Lesley-Anne McLeod has been writing for thirty years, around motherhood and a ten year career in bookselling. She free-lanced in business writing and published articles on antiques and collectibles while experimenting with story-telling and fan fiction.
For the past fifteen years Lesley-Anne has been able to focus her attention on fiction writing. Though she has written in a variety of genres, among them science fiction, contemporary and western, she has always been drawn to historical fiction. A life-long Anglophile, it seemed natural that she should write Regency romances, those uniquely English historical romances. Her inspiration comes from the work of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. She has nine full-length novels available in e-book form.
Lesley-Anne is married and has one daughter. She belongs to the Saskatchewan Romance Writers and treasures the support and friendship that group offers. She lives on the prairies of Canada which are distant from Regency England in time and thought, but her world retains an echo of Great Britain in history and tradition.

The Regency Storybook
Twelve people. Twelve historical events. Twelve stories...
England in the early nineteenth century: a place of extraordinary happenings. War on the continent and political upheavals at home buffeted the lives of ordinary people, while arts and literature flourished under the Prince Regent and a glittering group of aristocrats led high society. It was a period of tumultuous change.
The twelve short stories in this book follow fictional Regency characters facing the challenges of everyday life while brushing up against momentous historical events. Young Miss Phoebe Churcham is unwittingly caught up in the assassination of the prime minister. The publication of a literary classic causes problems for Sir Aubrey Granthorpe. Imogen Rush, Dowager Marchioness of Lavington, visits with an old friend--the Regent's mistress. The tragic death of a princess touches the Newick family as it does the entire nation. And one day, foppish Postumus Enderby is inspired to take radical steps after reading the morning news. These stories and others will draw you into the private lives and wider world of Regency England.
Charming costume illustrations by Shakoriel bring colour to these heroes and heroines, embellishing all twelve of Lesley-Anne McLeod's stories. THE REGENCY STORYBOOK is a collection of lives, loves, and histories--of a time two hundred years ago, but as vivid as yesterday.
