  1. Hi! I recently bought a slew of your books for my kindle. I loved them!! When is the Wedding Journey going to be available? I am sorry to write this here but I couldn’t find an email address for you. I also have a few random questions. Did they end up finding her brother and father in Reforming Lord Ragsdale? Would he have really married the other girl? He would have been miserable! I like to think he would have realized his mistake and charged after her even if he hadn’t read her letter. :) Think I’m right? At the end of Mrs Drew I was wondering how Roxie’s brother-in-law felt that she gave Winn a son. When she told him she loved Winn he seemed upset. Did he truly love her? Is that why he went pyscho? Also what did Winn’s ex-wife say when she found out he was happily married with children? I like to think it bothered her. And Winn’s youngest sister must have been thrilled that he had an heir. But did she ever grow to like Roxie and vice-a-versa? I simply love your novels!!

    • Aha, questions, questions, Michele! SOunds like you really invested in those books, which tickles me. I think probably Emma found her brother and father in Australia. As for your other questions, hard to say.

      Wedding Journey is out as an ebook via Signet. Best idea is just to check me out on AMazon.

  2. From “Marrying the Royal Marine” there was a Scottish nursery rhyme, “There was an old bee, and he lived in a barn…” Every once in a while I run a search on this childhood memory (I remember the words slightly differently) because I wonder where it came from and why my friends have never heard it. Suddenly I get an Internet match, the lines from your novel, and the mystery thickens. Where did you come across this ditty and do you have any information on its origins?

    • My grandmother Baier nee Fergusson taught me that. Her father, my Great Grandpa Sam Fergusson was born in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland. I know it’s Scottish. My relatives were/are lowland Scots from that Galloway area. That’s all I know about “the bee.”

  3. I wish Hollywood would make a movie of “Miss Whittier Makes a List”.
    Carla’s characters stay with me and I read her books over and over.

  4. Dear Ms. Carla Kelly,
    Oh! How I have so-enjoyed your Work via Nook! Thank you for the Regency friends of whom you have marvelously woven and shared with me.
    Being an enthusiastic proponent for the cyber-library, will these four books be released as an eBook-Edition?
    1) Mrs McVinnie’s London Season
    2) Miss Billings Treads the Boards
    3) With This Ring
    4) Miss Milton Speaks Her Mind
    If so, please let this happy eReader know when! May that it be sooner-than-soon!
    I look forward to hearing from you ~
    Pamela McKenzie
