Of All the Western StarsOf All the Western Stars is a foray into the land of the Tudors. The novel is a romance with history meeting science fiction as a young man, Ashur, time travels from five hundred years in our future to the world five hundred years in our past.

Lost and trapped, Ashur meets Lisette Weston, a young lady also trapped in the world of Tudor England. Obliged to marry for the good of family position, Lisette faces a loveless future of restriction and tedium until she finds Ashur and the magic he brings to her world.

But Ashur is not her shining knight come to rescue her and sweep her away with him. He is a fugitive from the future with a terrible burden of conscience for his own actions, pursued by those whose quest for vengeance against him will stop at nothing.

I have been invited to be guest author and blogger to be interviewed on the website of romance author, Bernadette Marie. Look for my appearance there starting January 17th talking about Of All the Western Stars and how a science fiction and non-fiction Civil War history author – me – came to be writing a romance novel! On Friday, one winner will receive a free copy of the novel.
