Synopsis:

A New Tale Is Added to this Christy Award-Winning Fantasy Saga!

Submissive to her father’s will, Lady Leta of Aiven travels far to meet a prospective husband she neither knows nor loves–Lord Alistair, future king of the North Country.

But within the walls of Gaheris Castle, all is not right. Vicious night terrors plague Lord Alistair to the brink of insanity. Whispers rise from the family crypt. The reclusive castle Chronicler, Leta’s tutor and friend, possesses a secret so dangerous it could cost his life and topple the North Country into civil war.

And far away in a hidden kingdom, a fire burns atop the Temple of the Sacred Flame. Acolytes and priestesses serve their goddess to the limits of their lives and deaths. No one is safe while the Dragonwitch searches for the sword that slew her twice…and for the one person who can wield it.

Anne, I’ve been wondering…

Is it very difficult to come back to reality after spending so much time in your own imagination?

It can be! Sometimes my husband will ask me, “What’s wrong, sweetheart?” and I’ll reply, “Oh, nothing! I was just hearing a conversation in my head, that’s all.” This is a common ailment among writers, though, so I won’t complain.

Can you give my readers – both Christian & Secular fiction lovers – the short version on why both will love your series?

These stories are epic, adventurous fairy tales geared toward readers who love all things fantastical and a little dangerous. My dragons are deadly, and even they aren’t the worst foes to be faced. My heroes and heroines are all flawed, struggling, real people with no magical powers to help them conquer the evils besetting them. Each story is a tale of overcoming terrible odds, of growth, and ultimately, of grace undeserved. These are themes that will be encouraging and enjoyable to everyone, no matter her or his beliefs.

On a lighter note, what is the thing you’re most looking forward to for this summer?

I’m looking forward to finalizing all the last-minute details for my winter release, Goddess Tithe. There are still a lot of little things that have to be finished before it will be ready to share with the readers. But I am so excited about this story, the first novella I am producing to go along with the Tales of Goldstone Wood series. I think fans of this world and these characters will enjoy it!
