Read full description of the books Lady in White:A Widow with Nowhere to Go Commanded by Queen Elizabeth into marriage with a man made monstrous by a childhood accident, Lady Arabella Purfoy dares not refuse. With neither family nor allies to shield her from the plots that whirl around her, Belle must give fortune, family and even her body into the care of her new husband's steward, Master James Wyatt. A Man Sworn to Expose Her Master James Wyatt is certain that Lady Purfoy is a Protestant spy sent by his queen to prove his Catholic employer, Squire Nicholas Hollier, a traitor. Jamie will do anything, even pretend to be Nick, to protect his dearest friend from the tides of treachery that threaten to destroy them all.
Read information about the authorWhat can I say? I’m single and over sixty, I write and I farm on eight acres of slowly improving red earth (it originally looked like Mars had exploded!) on Oak Creek in northern Arizona. I started with chickens, then there were turkeys and Jersey milk cows. But with livestock came the predators: coyotes, bald eagles, black hawks, mountain lions, and, worst of all, raccoons. Dang those nasty creatures! They kill just because they can; think dogs with opposable thumbs. (Five chickens in one night–they reached in through the chain link and killed the birds with no expectation of being able to eat them.) They are the reason I have my two amazing dogs, Moosie (an Akita/Sharpei mix) and Bear (a Hungarian Kuvasz). Moosie just loves to take on (and kill) the raccoons. As for the cats, I have 8 and they’re supposed to eat the gophers but, being cats, they prefer cat food, thank you very much.
In May 2016, I turned yet a new page on the farm. Earlier in the year I sold the last of my Jersey cows in favor of Dorper Sheep, a South African breed that doesn’t need to be sheared and gains all their weight on grass alone, after an acquaintance informed me that they are “stupid simple” to raise. Stupid simple I can do! I have since learned that although these sheep are capable of gaining all their weight on grass, they far prefer sprouted grain and turkey food. Rascals!
In July, I added a couple of little gilts (female pigs) who have since grown to be somewhat scary but very loving 250 pound hogs. I have friends who are petitioning that I save one for breeding, and I may do that. The other, I fear, is headed for bacon.
As for my turkeys, I didn't have many birds this year. My sweet Tom is showing his age. Over 200 eggs this year and only 30 hatchlings. Who knew E.D. was an issue with older Toms? His grandson, little TommyTwo has finally come into his own and the hens like him, so next year will be a better year. That's the farmer's refrain: Next year!
Now that the weather is cooling it's at last time to return to the computer and my writing. I'll admit it...I took a break from inside work to concentrate on farming after June of this year when I published my fifteenth book, LOST INNOCENTS. It is the third mystery in my new Servant of the Crown Medieval mystery series. Set in 1194–the year the Coroner’s Office was invented–the sleuth in the series is Sir Faucon de Ramis, who just happens to be the maternal cousin of Gilliam and Geoffrey FitzHenry from the Seasons Series.
Although I have started the fourth book in the mystery series, the next book I'll publish will be a children's book, which I hope to parley into a series of books based on my farm and the crazy things that happen here. Look for "Moosie and Bear" to be available before Christmas, 2016.
