New Year, New Series!

My 2024 is starting off with a bang, because He Moved Thro’ the Fair, Book 1 of my new Children of the Swan Series, will be released by Claddagh Publications on March 19th!

I’m really excited about this book because it’s a bit of a departure for me. It’s not my usual straight historical. This book—and the entire series—is set in an enchanted kingdom called Ceiliúradh, an Irish word that means celebration. The people of Ceiliúradh are descended from a clutch of swans’ eggs rescued from destruction by a wise woman, and the kingdom is protected by An Garda Bán (the White Guard), warriors who shift from humans to swans.

Here's a little bit about He Moved Thro’ the Fair:

‘Twas in Ireland, in the mists of time, when a goldsmith fell in love with a princess.

A reluctant bride…

Breegeen, crown princess of Ceiliúradh, once dreamed of marrying the man she’d loved forever. Abandoned at the altar, she turned to another in her bitter hurt and despair.

A man haunted by his tortured past…

Tristan of Ceiliúradh lost everything the day he was torn from his home—his parents, his home, and the woman he loved. Now returned after three years in captivity, he’s determined to claim her again.

A kingdom haunted by its past…

Long ago, a devastated Ceiliúradh was brought back to life at the hands of a healer. Now the marauders have returned to claim revenge—and the kingdom. Can the Tristan and Breegeen prevent the people of Ceiliúradh from slavery?

He Moved Thro’ the Fair goes up for pre-order on March 1st.

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy 2024, with lots of great reading!


Céad míle fáilte! A hundred thousand welcome to my online home! You’re welcome here!

I chose to adorn my website with the Claddagh because it’s my favorite symbol of Ireland. The two hands cradling the heart, with the crown on top, symbolize Friendship, Loyalty and Love, three themes which feature in my novels.

I hope you’ll come in, make yourself comfortable, and feel free to look around. There are excerpts from each of my books, photos, news, and more!
