Books We Love to write... Books You Love to read
 

 


 




Windmaster Golem
by Helen B. Henderson

 

Kiansel, sister to the current Oracle of Givneh, is expected to one day assume the mantle and lead the temple’s followers. Her emerging powers force an impossible decision. Turn her back on her family and heritage to study the way of magic or follow the teachings of the oracle.

Banishment to a remote village as healer, a position he despised, fueled Relliq’s desire for revenge. The discovery of a mythical city and an army of clay soldiers provided the means to control all mages--including the one he wanted most—Kiansel.

Brodie, weaponsmith for the School of Mages couldn’t refuse the archmage’s request to act as escort for a healing team fighting a curse upon the land. But how can a man without any magic of his own fight a curse or protect a friend from an invisible stalker.

Sylvia's Secret
by Roberta Grieve

 

Life as a WAAF in wartime England is not as glamorous as Sylvia Bishop had anticipated, although in letters home she tries to keep up the pretence for her sister Daisy. Then she is posted to a new RAF station and her work becomes more interesting. She is put in the Photo Intelligence unit and becomes very good at her job. Frustratingly, she cannot tell Daisy or anyone else what that entails as she has had to sign the Official Secrets Act.
 

Her secret job is not the only thing that inhibits Sylvia from confiding in her sister. She has fallen in love with handsome Wing Commander Hugh Smythe, a forbidden love as he is married. If their relationship is discovered it will mean scandal and ruined careers for both of them. 
 
Sylvia desperately tries to forget Hugh and concentrate on her very important work. But how can she when she works so closely with him?

Begott
en
by Katherine Pym

 

On the verge of destruction, Kessav is shocked when his wife refuses to accompany him to a new land. As the ground splinters under her feet, Luna, a kitchen slave, is terrified. She finds Kessav in the market, fires exploding all around them. He takes her with him where they leap into an energy field to land in ancient Sumer, 4500 BCE. Their new world is clean with no fire belching from rents in the earth, but Elam, Kessav’s old friend, is furious over the wife's desertion and shows bitterness and hatred.

Kessav builds a new life but holds secrets from Luna, and Luna fears telling her secrets would destroy Kessav. After the loss of their firstborn to the great goddess, will their love bind them together? Will Elam exact a cruel revenge?

Mother Shipton and the Sister Witches
by Jude Pittman and Gail Roughton

The Shipton history is complicated. Some families have a guardian angel. The Shiptons have a guardian ancestor who whizzes through the centuries and jumps right in whenever one of her girls is in trouble. 
All the girls have power and they’re watched over by elder sister Lillian, who takes her job as family trouble shooter seriously.  There’s no shortage of trouble to be sorted out either and even with their own powers each of the girls needs help. First Katherine's oilman fiancé disappears in the Gulf of Mexico, and then Irene's world champion saddle bronc rider fiancé is sabotaged and in danger of being trampled by a bucking bronco. 

The spider-web of trouble stretching between these three modern sister witches might be too much for even a time-traveling guardian angel to handle on her own.

Whist
ling Up A Ghost
by Dean L. Hovey


Peter and Jenny Rogers return from their honeymoon to a pile of wedding presents including the deed to an old house. They open presents from the residents of Whistling Pines Senior Care Center ranging from thoughtful, to thrift shop purchases, and “what is that?”

Taking a break from the gift opening party, they tune in to a live news broadcast and watch the historical society president open a time capsule found during demolition of the band shell. The opening ceremony turns grim when a rusty pistol and a newspaper clipping about an old murder are revealed.

The Whistling Pines rumor mill runs amok as the retired residents offer up murder motives, stories about the victim’s checkered past, and a multitude of potential murderers. Despite his full-time job as Whistling Pines recreation director, Peter gets dragged into the time capsule murder investigation.

An Interview with Katherine Pym

 

Katherine Pym and her husband divide their time between Seattle, WA and Austin, TX. She loves history, especially Early Modern England, where most of her stories originate, and one other, a biographical novel of Camille Desmoulins during the French Revolution. His real life reads like a tragic romance.

 
 
How are you doing during these crazy COVID-19 times? Have you been quarantined?
 

We've self-quarantined during the lockdown, and again after we ventured outside. With stage IV cancer, I have to be more careful than most.
 
The winter was tough so we were forced to stay in anyway, although we missed going to dinner and eating out. We missed visiting with friends and family. It's been a lonely few months, must say. BUT on the upside, I finished my story of ancient Sumer/Sumeria, which is a plus.

 
Do you believe the Coronavirus will (or should?) make its way into future books by various authors?
 

Maybe later. It's too early for people to see covid-19 in a story when we've been living it for the last several months. And we don't know how it will flesh out, if we are on the wane (hope!) or if we're on the verge of another spike (no no tell me it ain't so), like the Spanish Flu which it seems the scientists have in the back of their minds.

 
Do you have a new release or upcoming book?
 

Yes, and thanks for asking. My story 'Begotten' is a historical/fantasy based in ancient Sumer, or as many understand it to be, Sumeria. Due to the vast amount of clay tablets unearthed, the time frame, and what was accomplished then, takes place between 4500BCE and 3500BCE. 
 
It starts out with a recurring dream (the fantasy part of the story) I've had since youth of seeing a large temple with people standing before it. They are fearful. I feel something terrible takes place within those mighty walls. Then I'm running, the world shattering about me. A man takes my hand and we dash down the street to a roiling hot ocean.
 
After that, you'll have to read the story, which released this month. I have Notes from The Author and a Bibliography.
 
Scholars have unearthed enough clay tablets to understand the philosophy of the temple and its workings, which I used to the inth degree. The scholars were very kind and gave permission to use their data.

 
What's your favorite genre to write?
 

Mostly historical fiction. I know a lot about the English Restoration, but my research has also taken me to the earlier part of the 17th century, as witnessed in the BWL Canadian Brides with Sir David and Lady Sara Kirke, real people who settled in Newfoundland and created a successful fishery. Doesn't sound so exciting when you read this, but David and Sara also had a home in London England, where he followed in his father's footsteps as a vintner. David Kirke was a privateer for King Charles I, but had a bit of a tangle with the old king, which is also expressed in my novel, Pillars of Avalon. It was a real stroke of luck to have run into the couple.
 

What have you been reading lately?
 

Mostly stories from other historical authors. I'm amazed and thrilled at the research they come across and express in their stories. Some of the historical fiction authors can be truly historical scholars of the time they write, then weave into a fictional tale. Truly amazing.

 
What do you like to do in your spare time, away from the computer?
 
I spend time with my family and of late find comfort in crocheting.
 
Do you envision yourself writing into your later years?
 

I am in my later years. With the cancer progressing I never know if, once I start a new story, if I'll finish it. It was thus with Begotten and as a result is less than my normal 95K word count, but it's surprisingly up there. My characters could not stop telling me what to write and how to write it. They told me to delve deeper into the Sumerian texts and come up with so many things that rested in one of mankind's cradle of civilization. If I could travel back in time, I think I'd start there.
 

What's your guilty pleasure?
 

I love going on day trips, to see the amazing landscape out there, which is as diverse as man him/herself. You can see ancient seashells along roads in Texas where there was once a vast sea. You can find Lewis and Clark's saltworks in Oregon, unending trees that fill the landscape of BC in Canada. And you can see the incredible destruction of the fires that swept across California. That's when I remember the beauty, some of which is gone now, of the vinyards and the towns that grew up around them.

 
 
Where can we find more about you and your books?
 
I'm all over the place, in Kobo, Smashwords, on the BWL website and blog, and of course amazon.
