I am getting quite excited now! My first book in the Hiraeth Trilogy, "Hiraeth a mark - marc" is finally available for release this coming Monday, 15th December. It is inspired by big Celtic themes: the Mabinogion, music, Welsh and Irish mythology and texts. The list is long and fairly comprehensive, but the overriding theme is the Welsh language. The initial inspiration is my 10 year battle with the language but it has morphed into some sort of an homage to it. It is a Celtic noir contemporary fantasy.

"Mona Jones has been on the run all her life without knowing why. Her parents were murdered and now, at twenty one, her uncle and protector is dead too. This chain of events compels her to spend time amid a Welsh-speaking community in Ynys Môn (Anglesey, North Wales). Here her druidic ancestry begins to emerge, though it is spotted more quickly by those around her. She is branded by an enemy Druid and finds herself at the centre of a druidic civil war.

“The Mark” unleashes her power, but she also has a terrible weakness. Mona finds herself drawn to the warrior Cai, but they are separated when the community is attacked. The Welsh druids are convinced there is a spy in their midst and both Mona and Cai become suspects. When Mona is assaulted, her uncontrolled power explodes for a second time. The Druids must decide if she is their saviour or their destroyer."
