Today’s featured Beau Monde author is Regan Walker!
Regan Walker is an award-winning, Amazon #1 bestselling author of Georgian, Regency and Medieval romances, including the Agents of the Crown series, the Donet Trilogy and the Medieval Warriors series. A lawyer turned full-time writer, her first six novels were Regencies and she tells us she has another coming our way for Christmas this year.
Meanwhile, she has just added another novel to her Georgian romances. Echo in the Wind is set in England and France in the years before the French Revolution.
Regan has been featured on USA TODAY’s HEA blog six times. Her novels have finaled in several contests and been nominated six times for InD’Tale Magazine’s RONE award. (She has two finalists in this year’s contest). Her novel, The Red Wolf’s Prize, won Best Historical Novel in 2015 in the Medieval category. In 2017, her novel, The Refuge: An Inspirational Novel of Scotland, won the Gold Medal in the Illumination Awards.
Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government have given Regan a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown”. Hence her novels often involve a demanding sovereign who taps his subjects for special assignments. Each of her novels features real history and real historical figures. And, of course, adventure and love.
What do you love best/interests you most about the Regency Era?
It was a time of change. Oh, I do love the clothing, the horses, the country estates and house parties among the nobility. But those were prevalent in the 18th century. However, among the rest of the people, much was changing. I like to reach for those interesting details. For example, England’s government feared a revolution like that which occurred in France and took harsh steps to quash the people’s unrest; the hypocrisy of the Anglican church was being challenged; slavery was ending; Catholics were being treated equally.
What do you like the most about the Beau Monde Chapter? How long have you been a member?
I’ve been a member for several years. I like the discussions focused on accuracy in Regency research. If we’re going to set stories in the era, we should get the details right, shouldn’t we?
