Did you ever wonder what other pursuits writers of historical romance enjoy?  We don't spend every hour researching or writing, though it often seems like it!  Beth Trissel has offered her lovely blog this morning to let me write on another one of my passions--animal rescue.  One of my books is featured, with all proceeds going to Home Free Animal Rescue.  I would love it if you could join us. for Furbaby Friday.  And of course you can see my romances at

NEW RELEASE: DARK CHILD - A Tale of Deirdre of the Sorrows

Born at a royal banquet for King Conor MacNessa of Ulster, Deirdre is predicted by Conor’s own druid to be blessed and cursed with a beauty that will make kingdoms contest over her.  He names her “Deirdre of the Sorrows” and urges the king to slay her.  But Conor, unwilling to murder a babe, takes her under his protection only to fall prey to the curse when she is nearly grown.  Captivated by her youth and beauty, the aging king will go to any extreme to possess her.

When Deirdre innocently falls in love with one of Conor’s chief warriors, it sets in motion a tragedy that will involve kings and countries, famous fighting men and sages alike:  Cuchulain, champion of the Cattle Raid of Cooley, King Fergus MacRi of Ulster, Queen Medb of Connaught, Catha the Druid and others.  Join author Miriam Newman for her bardic-style version of a legend told countless times in Ireland over the centuries--a classic Irish tale of love, loyalty, betrayal, magic and revenge.

5-Star Review for SINBAD SAILS AGAIN

Thanks to the Paranormal Romance Guild for the 5-star review of SINBAD SAILS AGAIN.

The full review can be read at:

Sinbad Sails Again is available in paperback exclusively from the publisher's website:

and from Amazon:


Available for the first time as an e-book bundle, the award-winning historical fantasy series The Chronicles of Alcinia weaves a tale of war, history, passion and romance.   In Book I, The King’s Daughter, Tarabenthia of Alcinia should grow to inherit her father’s throne by the rocky cliffs of the sea.  When invaders seize her land, what will she sacrifice in the name of love?  In Book II, Heart of the Earth, the Northern Prince who has always wanted Tia saves her life.  But will the price of his protection be too high?  And finally in Book III, Ice Maiden, readers who wondered about the fate of Tia’s oldest son have their answer.  Sometimes heart-wrenching, always powerful, this is a tale of heroes and the women who loved them.
