Blogging at Unusual Historicals about Scandal

"Beloved" painting by Caroline Young

"Beloved" painting by Caroline Young (

This month’s theme at Unusual Historicals is scandal and I couldn’t resist writing Concubine Yang Yuhuan and her tragic love story. She’s one of my muses and she inspired the character of Lady Ling Suyin or Ling Guifei who’s one of two characters that span all three books.

    Ooh, I’ll definitely check it out. I love how your books are grounded in Chinese history.
