About the Author:

Cheryl R. Lane was born and raised in Johnson City, Tennessee, and went to college at East Tennessee State University before marrying her high school sweetheart and moving to Virginia Beach, Virginia.

She started writing as a hobby when she was in college after purchasing a couple of Southern Heritage cookbooks, which were filled with pages of beautiful old plantation homes. She used to sit outside in her backyard and type on a manual typewriter at a picnic table under tall maple trees. 

She continued writing after moving to Virginia Beach and visiting beautifully restored homes in Williamsburg as well as plantations on the James River. She has been working in medical and now legal transcription while writing on the side, and finally decided to self-publish her first novel in December 2012.  She enjoys the freedom and creativity of self-publishing. 

She loves being outside in nature and her hobbies include visiting historical homes and gardens, reading, traveling, exercising, and going to the beach.  She is still married to her sweetheart after 29 years, and they have one son who is an actor and a Havanese bichon.

Meet Benjamin

Hi!  I’m Cheryl R. Lane, and I am the author of two romance series:  the historical romance Wellington Cross Series and the paranormal romance Angel series.  Today I’d like to discuss one of the characters from my new book, Wellington Letters, book six in the Wellington Cross Series.  His name is Benjamin.

Benjamin Morehouse was a kind, brave man who had dark wavy hair, full beard and mustache, and long lashes surrounding green eyes.  He was a corporal in the Union Army in 1864 during the Civil War.  Originally from New York, he was one of a small band of men leftover from the Battle of Cold Harbor.  His group had discovered a spy in their midst who had escaped with a bullet wound but carried a secret letter he was determined to deliver to a Confederate colonel.  Ben’s leader, Sergeant Warren, was a crude man who had no regard for how to treat a woman and tried to force himself on the pretty red-haired Southern woman they had just met while looking for the spy.  Judy had caught Ben's attention and he soon found himself protecting her from his own sergeant.  He helped her and her mother escape to a safe place but ended up getting shot in the process.  He eventually gets caught by the Confederates at Baylor’s Farm where he realizes he has fallen in love with Judy.  If you've read Wellington Grove and A Wellington Christmas, then you’re already acquainted with Ben.
