Researching The Jossing Affair by J. L. Oakley

Posted by on May 16, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Research, Historical Tidbits, World War Two | 1 comment

            “He found the young man lying in the snow, his battered body pushed deep under the brambles at the bottom of a ravine. If it had not been for the sound of the car door slamming, Hans Gunnerson would never have found him.” This is how my new WW II novel, The Jøssing Affair, opens, just as I dreamed it nearly twenty-five years ago. After I told a friend about it, she said write it down. I did. She loved it and said to do more. I never had written a novel before. Worse, I knew nothing about Norway during WW II beyond...

Evocatio: How to Woo a Goddess by Elisabeth Storrs

Posted by on May 2, 2016 in Ancient Rome, Featured Book | 3 comments

The third novel in my Tales of Ancient Rome saga is entitled Call to Juno. It is set in the final year of a ten year siege between the Etruscan city of Veii and the nascent Republican Rome in 396 BC. These cities were situated only 12 miles apart across the Tiber River but the differences in their societies were marked. The Etruscans were sophisticated and cosmopolitan with trading links extending across the Mediterranean whereas Roman society was insular, warlike and agrarian. Accordingly, by crossing a strip of water, it was like moving...

The High Council of Britain by Sarah Woodbury

Posted by on Apr 18, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Research, Medieval Great Britain | 1 comment

Within British (and by that I mean Welsh/Cymry/Celtic) legend, a High Council—a Parliament of a sort—existed in the Dark Ages to choose a “high king”.  One of these high kings, according to legend, was King Arthur.  Later, during Arthur’s reign, he instituted his ’round table’, a gathering of equals, to discuss the troubles in his realm.  Or so the story goes. But did this High Council ever exist? The answer is ‘yes’—certainly during the reign of the last Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd.  In...
