About the Book
Rolland Keep lay far from the worries of court. Yet, when rumors reach far and wide that the young King Edward is ill, Brigetta Rolland is thrust into the quest for power. Her father murdered, Brigetta suddenly finds herself on the run. She will have to rely on every unladylike skill she has acquired to stay one step ahead of those who would tame her. A young woman with no right to decide her own fate, the young King Edward will decide. It may be that Brigetta Rolland is more than they had bargained for.
About the Author
As the author of Etta’s Lessons I admit to being a lover of the renaissance. All history really. From the Medieval straight on through to the Edwardian era. It could be the clothes, the castles and the manor houses. Whatever it is, it speaks to me and I cannot get enough of it. Be it from a history book or a historical fiction, the study of ancient histories has allowed readers to travel through time. And I am at home there.
My stories have been used in school classroom settings, teaching young readers the gist of a different life in a different time. I have yet to meet a young man who wouldn’t rather be a knight than a gung farmer. Nor a young woman who would not rather be a lady of the court than a scullery maid. Having the opportunity to run my stories past a hoard of report writing middle school students has been both helpful and harrowing! But it has always been my goal to instill a love of reading with every student. And I am still at it, nearly 20 years now.
Bend, Oregon is the perfect writers paradise. When I am not hovering over a good story, (reading or writing) I am teaching, directing the school’s spring musicals, or spending time out of doors with my family and friends.
