Interviews

Heart to Heart Interview with Lynn Kurland

Heart to Heart: What was your inspiration for Dreams of Stardust? Do you have a favorite character in the book?

Lynn Kurland: I know a fabulous jeweler near Seattle called Foxfire -- they do these amazing things with things that sparkle. A trip there inspired me to explore the possibilities of not only gems but also the facets that people have that often go unappreciated. My favorite character in this book has to be the hero, because he's willing to sacrifice so much for the woman he loves.

HtoH: As a writer, what do you find to be the challenges and advantages of time-travel romances?

LK: The challenges are keeping historical details straight; the advantages are the limitless possibilities for humor that having a hero or heroine centuries out of their time provides!

HtoH: What was your first encounter with medieval times? What kind of research do you do for each historical?

LK: I must give credit where it's due -- my first romance was Jude Deveraux's The Black Lion. The chivalry, pageantry, and bigger-than-life characters had me hooked. Mix that up with a little of Monty Python's The Holy Grail, Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and John Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur, and I just couldn't stay away from the time period. I read lots of biographies and histories, the more obscure and unedited, the better. I choose the particular year, make sure I have historical figures in their proper place and time, then go from there.

HtoH: You are such a versatile writer, from time-travel romances to ghost stories to pure historicals. Is there a genre you prefer?

LK: I have to admit I'm a sucker for a good ghost story, but only when the ghosts are of the endearing, matchmaking kind. Again, [ghost stories have] great potential for humor and delightful perplexities, with the poor mortals just trying to get through the day while being haunted!

I won this book as part of a Romance Writers giveaway. After years of languishing on my TBR “Shelf”, I am voluntarily reviewing it] “ I believe,” she said,” in what I can touch, in what I can see, in what I can hold in these two hands. But,’ she admitted with a smile,” I am willing consider other possibilities”. Jackson Kilchurn is a jewelry designer and a gemologist who stumbles upon a whole new type of adventure when he, while on another adventure, makes a side trip into the impossible. Amanda dePiaget, only daughter of an English lord,is busy trying to avoid the suitors that are more interested in the dowry than her. And she’s tired of it. Until she finds a barely alive man and nurses him back to health and discovers he knows nothing about her and her family. For that reason alone she is intrigued. In this 2005 introductory romance, Lynn Kurland writes a page turning historical romance that makes you wonder why we all can’t go anywhere we want to to find our heart’s desire. Suspend reality and enter into the historical time that Kurland’s prose brings to you. Recommended

My favorite De Piaget book so far. I loved it! I love the time travel portion and have been looking forward to it. This one bridged the first two together but it is not necessary to read the others first. All of the Characters are well developed and have their own personality defined by language and interactions. There are many characters to keep track of but the voicing allows us to do so easily. As always, a good, clean, fun read.

A fun and romantic tale! Great for those of us who prefer a "PG" experience as opposed to a rated "X." Lynn Kurland has done a wonderful job!
