An interview with JG Harlond about her latest book

Picture
  Good afternoon Jane. Thanks for joining me on my blog to talk about your latest book THE DOOMSONG SWORD.You are a successful novelist of historical fiction for adults. Why did you suddenly decide to write a fantasy novel for young adults? To be honest, there was nothing sudden about it: quite the contrary, in fact. Apart from my historical crime fiction, I also write school text book material for senior schools – middle-grade to pre-university students. Some years ago I planned a re-telling of Norse myths and legends to be used in schools. This was taken up by a publisher and I began the project, but then the financial crisis caught up with the publisher and it was cancelled. By that time,...

The ship “Ann” did exist and was launched in London in 1645 by CaptainRobert Knox who died in captivity in Ceylon in 1659. His eldest son,Robert Knox junior managed to escape in 1679 and returned to England, and where he was persuaded to write an account of his time there.

What a week!

Internationally renowned
Good morning! So, vacation’s this week. We’re off later this morning to get the a/c fixed in my van. Not a terribly fun thing on vacation, but it also means I don’t sit at the dealership for 6 hours. LOL The house is still quiet. Right now, it’s just me and the cats awake. And some of the felines may have gone back to napping. That, or they’re into mischief. General rule with toddlers and kittens: if it’s quiet, go check. LOL A lot of good has happened lately, even with some bad. It’s 13 days until Ayrshire College Comicon in Scotland. Hopeful that my donation to the silent auction does their local food bank some good. I have a surgery date. My 40+ year battle with obesity will be coming to ...
