Our Authors & Principals
Over the years, throughout their many journeys, the Moorhouses, Frances & Jeffrey, had become ardent observers of the human condition. After all, life unfolds everywhere, in airports, restaurants or on any of the boulevards one might travel in a lifetime. To them, their observations of life were an insightful study, and one not the least inhibited by the vagaries of language. So, when they figuratively put pen to paper on their first novel, they had a wealth of experiences to draw upon for inspiration. Both Frances and Jeffrey, seasoned travelers, observers of life and budding raconteurs, were able to draw upon vivid recollections of interesting places and intriguing people.
Their eventual entry into the world of fiction was simply a variation on a theme for a pair of travel and lifestyle editors. For well over a decade, they had written extensively about arts & cultural experiences for the European traveler. Their byline had appeared in print and on the internet. But, their first love was a fashionable online journal they created for a niche audience of cultured travelers. Over the years, they expanded their online resources to include a companion weblog and a podcast page. Today they also employ select social media to quickly distribute "news items" to their readers.
All this came about at a time when they learned that the sun would soon set on the British hotel group they had represented for over a generation. This London based hostelry group was founded in Victorian times and flourished notably thereafter in the fashionable Edwardian era. The company’s portfolio of properties included smart hotels in major British cities as well as former aristocratic mansions that now provided tweedy comforts to upscale guests on provincial holidays. The brand also extended to luxury golf resorts nestled in Scottish glens or on lands linked to the sea.
To Frances and Jeffrey, this had been more than a mere career path. Upon reflection, it almost seemed that they had lived an existence somewhere between "Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs" and a world of Vintage Victorian elegance.
They recalled vividly, so long ago, when they had entered this new existence, filled with accents, from cultured English to regional Highland brogues. Above all, this special new world thrived on grand traditions of impeccable service in splendid hotels with colleagues who were eminently polished, and consummate professionals. Little wonder that Frances and Jeffrey, can so easily draw upon a legion of extraordinary experiences shared with a cadre of British and European colleagues. It is these memories, drawn from the Bel Epoque of their lifetime, that so inspire their literary pursuits to this day.
So it was, that at a time when others might be thinking of retirement, Frances and Jeffrey entered the world of online publishing, credentialed with a lifetime of experiences for inspiration.
