Jacqueline Church Simonds
I am an author and publishing consultant living in Reno, Nevada. I love (in no particular order) books, writing, reading, beagles, coffee, good bourbon, publishing, and politics.
My latest book is a novella, ANYA: MISTRESS OF DRUNEMETON, Book Four of the BOOK OF ANYA series. This follows the March release of the first novella of the series ANYA: THE HEALER OF CAMELOT (Book 1), the June release of ANYA: KING ARTHUR'S MISTRESS (Book 2), and the September release of ANYA: MERLIN'S WOMAN (Book 3).
I have always loved the King Arthur saga and am a big fan of such books as THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING, THE MISTS OF AVALON, and the Mary Stewart Merlin books. THE BOOK OF ANYA is a mouse-eye view of the doings of Camelot, King Arthur, Merlin and Morgaine. You can follow more about the novellas, and a book set in the future, by visiting http://jcsimonds.com.
My previous novel is CAPTAIN MARY, BUCCANEER, a historical adventure novel loosely based on the real pirate women Ann Bonney and Mary Reade. Because who doesn't love pirates, especially women pirates?
Keep an eye peeled! My contemporary Arthurian fantasy THE MIDSUMMER WIFE about what happens to the descendants of Anya, Arthur, and Merlin, debuts is 2018 from Vagabondage Press.
