Pure evil rises once again in Albia…
 
Three years have passed since Baron Reen’s trial. A terrible accident on the island of his exile has transformed him into a nightmarish scarecrow creature with dark, mysterious powers. Staging his own suicide, Reen breaks free of his prison and, with the help of the former queen Sofira, embarks on a ruthless quest for vengeance against his worst enemy, the woman responsible for the overthrow of his schemes and his own ruination: Brynne Sullyan.
 
Sullyan is tasked with investigating Reen’s suicide. The missing body and a series of disasters in Port Loxton—a vicious murder, a brutal ambush, and a devastating fire—raise suspicions in her mind. She probes deeper, determined to uncover the truth, unsuspecting of the evil that’s about to be unleashed…

Q & A With the Author:
1.     When did you write your first novel? I have been writing stories and poetry since I was a child, but my first novel wasn’t written until I was in my late twenties. It was a children’s adventure novel and its main characters were unicorns and other mythical forest dwellers. I was very proud of it but, unfortunately, unforeseen events in my life meant that I never finished it. I do still have it, however, and may revisit it one day and bring it to a conclusion!
2.     What drove you to write / why did you become an author?  I was driven to write because I loved creating different worlds to escape into. I did it to release tension in my life or as a form of escapism. My writings were never meant for others to see, although I did show some of my poetry. I never intended or thought I would ever become an author, but one day when I was bored, I started writing out a little scene I’d had in my head for years. That simple act seemed to open a floodgate in my mind, and that innocent little germ of an idea became my triple-trilogy fantasy series, Artesans of Albia. So – writers beware!
3.     How do you create your characters? I create my “good” characters to be people I’d love to be, or to spend time with. None of them are based on anyone I actually know, although King Elias from my Artesans novels is based on English actor Sean Bean’s portrayal of soldier Richard Sharpe from the Bernard Cornwell “Sharpe” TV series. My “bad” characters are also drawn mainly from my own imagination, rather than being based on real people. Some of their names, however, are inspired by people I don’t like!
4.     What is one thing you love about Fall / Autumn? In England, the feeling of the air is often softer and mellower than at
other times of the year. We can get energizing, chilly bright mornings that soften into warmer sunny days, ending with beautiful sunsets – that is, when we don’t get the remnants of US coast hurricanes, that is!
5.     Who is the person or group of people that most support you in your writing? I really couldn’t pick one person – everyone I know has been supportive of my writing, even if they don’t read or appreciate the fantasy genre. From my family to the far-flung friends I have made through being an author, no one has been less than encouraging and helpful. I guess I’m very lucky – I’ve never had the bad experiences that I’ve heard some authors complain of.
6.     What is your favorite Halloween Memory?   Halloween in England is not the festival it is in the US, although we are beginning to adopt some US activities. Guy Fawkes Night, November 5th, was always more exciting because of having fireworks, making straw “Guys” to put on the bonfire, and begging “Penny for the Guy” around the neighbors. Recently, many English villages have begun to have scarecrow competitions around Halloween, and we have entered these in our village. Everyone gets very inventive, and they are great fun. My best creation so far was “Guy Dog”!
