I’m currently traveling the country and have stopped in Virginia for a short break to finish renovating my 1963 Fan camper, similar to the vintage campers I wrote about in Credo’s Bones. I’ll be sure to post pictures as soon as I’m done. Meanwhile, here’s Maggie and I writing the next novel sitting next to the Maury River.

Alison, being the ex-cop that she is, is writing about a subject that she knows intimately and it shows in this book and it’s sequel, “Credo’s Legacy”. I find it refreshing that this author, coming from a police background–a very serious and sometimes deadly occupation–has such a keen sense of humor…..it’s definitely an added plus to her story telling.
I am continually impressed with the Ar’rothi series. From the opening lines of Book 3, I was gripped with the tension of battle and the details of tactics. In fact, I blazed through the opening chapters needing to know what happens next.
More than just battles, this book continues the growth of Kaiti, the Spirit Child, her importance in the world, and her maturing into a fighter who will do anything to protect her friends and those she loves.
There are real dangers here, injuries take real tolls, and death is always at hand. But so is love, redemption, and passion.
In this book, we learn much more about previously side characters and their importance to the continuing saga. And, as all good books in a series, it leaves the reader wanting more, anticipating the next book. Book 4 cannot come too soon.
Aurelia “Bree” Makena, the Duchess of Danforth, waits on a beach near Port Emnal in front of her three thousand troops. As the waves lap against the hooves of her battle mare, Lioth, Bree watches the enemy ships deploying more warriors against her than she’d ever thought possible. Victory may prove an insurmountable task.
Soon enough, however, she discovers that wrestling victory from defeat in this battle is just the beginning. Because the landing force is only a diversion for the real attack—one that if successful, will defeat her Anacafrian king more surely than an arrow driven through his heart.
You are invited to enter Ar’rothi, a world as vividly realized as Narnia or Middle Earth, a world where animal spirits guide humans towards enlightenment, and in which a warrior duchess and a disgraced princess must join forces against an evil that threatens everything they have learned to love.

Being a writer isn’t easy. Most of us use our computer to write our great American novel. The trouble is, there are so many distractions on the internet today that many times what took us 3 hours to write ten years ago takes us six hours today. We are distracted by •...
I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who has worked patrol for the past twenty years. As usual, the conversation eventually got around to my writing. He asked me if I still wrote about what writers do that really bugs cops on the street. When I said I did,...
If we are lucky, there comes a time in a writer’s life when we realize that, although we love our readers, we can no longer write simply to try to please them. Writing for other people can be a strangling experience, one where the hidden demons of self doubt creep...
Gift Ideas for Writers I absolutely love this time of year. The idea of dressing up my house with beautiful lights and wonderful smells is something I’ve looked forward to ever since I was a small child. I remember my dad pulling down box after box of tree decorations...
One truism I’ve found as a writer is it’s easier to let life get in the way of writing than to let writing get in the way of life. I’ve decided to turn that trend around and get back to the business of writing. Five years ago, I was easily writing up to 3000...
