A Midsummer Night’s Bet
A Midsummer Night’s Bet is my forthcoming novel. In movie terms (which we writers can’t get away from) it’s Shakespeare meets Braveheart, with Californians and real fairies: a love story. It’s a time travel romance with stakes that affect the entire human race. The fairy queen, Sophia Cundry, doesn’t quite violate her bet with estranged husband, Oborn, the fairy king. Two modern-day Californians get caught up in her machinations, which thrust them back to twelfth century Scotland, where they must play leading roles in a struggle between a group of sacred priestesses, the Kindred of Brigit, and the encroaching Catholic Church and its powerful bishop.
The book will be available later in 2014. For now check out the links below for excerpts, a bit of the backstory, and the real context in which the story’s bet takes place.
