A writer of immense power and intense emotion whose star shines brighter and brighter.
From the Author
is the fourth book of the Graistan Chronicles, the stories of the FitzHenry brothers. In this book I not only got to explore both the position of the sheriff and the idea of wardenship, but to share the amazing fact that sheriffs had to witness the birthing process of all pregnant widows. Now that was something I didn't expect, yet it made perfect sense against the mindset of the time..
As far as the content of the story, the book was written while I was grieving for my son Adam, who was murdered in 1994 just after Winter's Heat was published. Although the story of his life and death is as dramatic and tragic as any I could conceive of writing, it isn't one I want to write. Suffice it to say that I am now at peace with his passing and part of that peace came out of the issues I allowed Geoffrey and Elyssa to explore in Autumn's Flame.
