All About Villainy

Today I'm guest-blogging about The Dark Side of a Mother's Love and all things villainous over at Fresh Fiction. I'd love it if any of you could stop by and share a comment on your favorite villains.

I don't think I'll ever attempt historical fiction, but over the years I've toyed with the idea of a book about the first Mrs. Rocherster -- the raving lunatic lady in Jane Eyre.

It's a worthy idea. I think Jean Rhys may have done a version in Wide Sargasso Sea.

I haven't read it but it looks fascinating.
