I do not believe in giving cats baths. I think it is cruel and painful…to me. I won’t do it because I get scratched and usually bump something, so I have always stood my ground about bathing cats. Until last night. My kitty seems to have acquired some tenants that just haven’t gotten the hint with the medicine I give him, so for the first time in his 10 years of life I locked him in my shower and made it rain. First, I thought cats were supposed to shrink when you get them wet. Apparently my 18 pound cat is not just fluffy. Secondly, what is that noise I hear coming from that sopping wet mop at the bottom of the shower. He hit notes I have never heard in my entire life, and I think it actually spooked my resident ghost away.

ALTDORF (Book 1 of The Forest Knights Duology)

A wild land too mountainous to be tamed by plows…

A Duke of the Holy Roman Empire, his cunning overshadowed only by his ambition…

A young Priestess of the Old Religion, together with a charismatic outlaw, sparking a rebellion from deep within the forests…

And an ex-Hospitaller caught between them all.

“Re-imagining the William Tell legend–without William Tell.”

At the end of the thirteenth century, five hundred orphans and second sons are rounded up from villages in the Alpine countryside and sold to the Hospitaller Knights of St John. Trained to serve as Soldiers of Christ, they fight in eastern lands they know nothing about, for a cause they do not understand.

Thomas Schwyzer, released from his vows by the Grandmaster of the Hospitallers, returns to the land of his birth a stranger. Once a leader of men, and captain of the Order’s most famous war galley, he now settles into the simple life of a ferryman. He believes this new role to be God’s reward for years of faithful service fighting the Infidel in Outremer.

Seraina, considered a witch by most, a healer by some, is a young woman with a purpose. A Priestess of the Old Religion, and the last Druid disciple of the Helvetii Celts, she has been gifted by the Great Weave to see what others cannot. Her people need her guidance and protection now more than ever. For Duke Leopold of Habsburg, in his efforts to control the St. Gotthard Pass, builds a great Austrian fortress in Altdorf. Once finished, the Habsburg occupation will be complete, but the atrocities visited upon her people will have just begun.

Set in medieval Switzerland, ALTDORF, a novel of The Forest Knights, is the first book in a two-book series.

Truth or dare?

Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park, a trout stream, and an army of gardeners. They should have a son and if it can be managed, he should be handsome. Cleverness isn’t important. Daughters in limited quantities are fine so long as they are pretty. Bastards are inconvenient and best ignored. It’s not a big problem, unless you are one.

Unfortunately, Sophy is.

Sick of her outcast role, she escapes her father’s house, only to fall from her horse during a spring storm. Injured, soaked, and shivering, she stumbles to a stranger’s door—Tom, a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts. Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article, he takes her in.

Sophy can’t resist twisting the truth. Soon she’s caught in her own snare—and it might just be a noose.

“What would you do if you were overseas and the world collapsed? How would you get home?” my real-life friend asked me. She and her husband were about to leave for Germany to spend Christmas with his family.

Here is the story I wrote for them, of their journey home to the U.S. as the bottom fell out of the banking industry and nations went broke, rioting spread across Europe, and the world collapsed around them. By sea, air, and land they struggle to get home to their small ranch in Montana.
