About Gayle Mullen Pace

I have always been writing, even if it was only spinning stories in my head while cooking dinner or rocking babies at two o’clock in the morning. The stories have always been there. Maybe it was because we did more on our vacations than find a place to relax. We went to historic places, not just on vacations, but on day trips, as well, when the weather was nice enough for a picnic. Old cemeteries, grist mills, river ferries and Civil War battlefields—we visited as many places as we could.

My parents filled the house with books and I think every room had shelves. When we grew up and left home, my dad converted one of the bedrooms into a library. It seemed natural to take the stories in my head and begin writing them down. I wrote short stories all through school and continued after my marriage.

Life is passionate—good, bad, humorous—and the books I love most are brimming with all the passions that make people human. Realistic characters who strive to overcome their deepest fears and who live and love with every fiber of their being are the heart and soul of a good story. I wish you all of the best of life’s passion and many hours of happy reading!

UPDATE: 13 July 2014 - Working on Book 2 of the De Monbrai Saga. On my blog, you'll find a new post entitled "When Almonds Mooed." I discovered during my research that it was a food staple in medieval times. It was a fun write. Enjoy.

Review by: Cristina Machado on April 09, 2013 :
Simple amazing. It is like the old and good romance novels of 1980's and 1990's, reminds me the first books of K.Woodiwiss, especially The wolf and the dove. Dane and Morynha are a match made in heaven and there are really some very good hot scenes. Also the historical setting is fabulous, because Henry I's reign is a time full of intense cultural conflicts between Norman and Saxon people, perfect background to a intense and adventurous tale. Can't wait to other books in the series, especially Merlyn's story.
