About the Author: My castle-hopping adventures across North Wales to explore family roots resulted in my award-winning historical fantasy series Last of the Gifted. The series includes two books to date, Spirit Sight and Water Sight (participation made possible through Creative Saskatchewan’s Book Publishing Production Grant Program). I’m the author of more than 40 children’s books with such publishers as Scholastic Education and Amicus, along with award-winning short stories and poetry appearing in literary magazines like Room, subTerrain, and Sunlight Press. Among other degrees, I hold a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia (UBC). I live on Treaty 4 land in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Book Description: Last of the Gifted: Two siblings pledge their magical gifts to protect their people from the invading English, with the help of the last true Prince of Wales—after his murder.
Spirit Sight (Book 1): Warrior-in-training Hyw can control the minds of animals. His sister Catrin can see the future in a drop of water. When the Prince of Wales is murdered, Hyw’s gift allows him to meld with the prince’s spirit. Now Hyw and his sister must use their magical gifts to keep the prince’s brother from being captured by Longshanks’ ruthless army.
This award-winning medieval fantasy combines magic, mythology, and historical legends with the realities of 13th Century Wales. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08GFK8BSJ
