I live on a farm in southwestern Virginia with my family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet.
I am a Seattle native and a direct descendent of twentieth-century Russian nobility. My grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how she escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of my novels. Another novel in the queue will involve my husband’s ancestor, the seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.
For the time being, however, I have plenty of work to do in creating my projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles, and other novels under my imprint, Pendragon Cove Press.
