Back to Arthurian Legend
For the last 4 years, I've been immersed in the mystery and magic of Ancient Egypt. With the publication of Sons of the Sphinx in October 2014, I once again return to that land which has given the world the magnificent and everlasting legend of King Arthur.
I'm finishing up the first draft of the second Guinevere book. On the Eve of Legend was meant to be a stand alone story whose sole purpose was to introduce young readers to this legendary princess. However, over the years, I've not only heard from readers who adored Guinevere's friend Cedwyn and wanted to know what became of him, I've also had this young boy invading my mind. It seems that Cedwyn has his heart set on being a knight, not of Arthur, but of his friend Guinevere.
So, I've finally given into Cedwyn, and the second book is titled Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend—Cedwyn's Story. Those who loved the innocence of the young Guinevere will need to remember that even the young grow up. This story takes place about three years after the first, and Arthur is busy bringing all of Britain under the same flag. The adventures and trials that await Guinevere and Cedwyn will test their strength, their friendship, and the country.
