This is a Welsh lovespoon similar to the one my hero Matthias carves in Wish for the Moon. It was handcarved in Wales by Richard Downes. I think the tradition of giving a lovespoon as a courting gift is very romantic. I can't imagine the hours it must take to create one!

Another Gerry Butler.

This is my current muse. I have this picture on my current One Sheet. It's Gerard Butler. He's the inspiration for my main character in Wish for the Moon. I absolutely love him in Phantom of the Opera.

Welcome to my Blog!!

Hi! Welcome to my blog, Legendary Romance. This blog spot is dedicated to people who love romance novels and movies. As I update the posts, I want to share love stories I've enjoyed and read what others have liked. I'll also be recording my progress as I work toward becoming a published romance author.

I have one complete MS and another one in the planning stages. My complete MS is a romantic time travel set in Medieval Wales (think Somewhere in Time meets Excalibur), entitled Wish for the Moon. My WIP is another romantic time travel, Moonlight Madness (think Mel Gibson's character in Lethal Weapon meets Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing).

The biggest influence in my writing career was probably Johanna Lindsey. I grew up on her books beginning when I was a preteen. While reading everything she wrote, I also became fond of anything British: James Bond, Agatha Christie books, anything Celtic, BBC, Masterpiece Theatre, Shakespeare. I know more about the U.K. than the U.S.!! Naturally, when I started writing, I set my stories in the lands of mist and magic: Wales, England, Scotland, and Ireland.

Now I have some new favorite authors, which I'll post here from time to time, as well as films with strong themes of love and romance.

Cheers! Sandi
