Saturday's Featured Writer of the Day

 Today’s writer is the wonderful Trudy, who can be found on Wattpad and C19.

Trudy’s contribution to the fanfic world is a lovely story called “A Heart for Milton,” which of course features our favorite couple, John Thornton and Margaret Hale from the BBC’s “North and South.”

As most people know, my favorite RA character is Guy of Gisborne, so I tend to read more Guy fic than anything else. But occasionally, I've taken time away from the dark knight to read about other Armitage characters. This was a story that I had heard mentioned several times by other readers, so I decided to look at it for myself, and I'm so glad I did.

We know the characters well, of course, and Trudy paints them so beautifully it’s as if we are watching another film version, made with the author’s own talented hand. While the film ended with the famous kissing scene, this story takes it a step beyond, even adding a slight twist to John and Margaret’s meeting at the train station.

I can’t give too much away, because it would spoil the story. But I will say that if you love North and South, you will really love this.

Trudy’s work can be found here. I hope you'll stop by and have a look!

Happy Reading!

  3. I don't usually read fanfic, but I may have to start. It's been great to read about so many talented writers.

  4. Thanks so much, Sarah! What a lovely 'promo' for my story!
