“In the tradition of Mists of Avalon, Roberta Trahan pierces the veil between our world and the mysticism of ancient Wales. With poetic prose, this talented new fantasy author gives us a mature heroine to root for and a family saga filled with lovable heroes and detestable villains." —Stephanie Dray, author of the acclaimed Novels of Cleopatra’s Daughter series, Lily of the Nile and Song of the Nile
"The Well of Tears is part epic, part fantasy and wholly entertaining." —Melanie Jackson, best-selling author of The Chloe Mysteries series, The Selkie, and dozens more paranormal, mystery, thriller and horror titles
"[The Well of Tears] begins a series that echoes Arthurian lore and pays tribute to the spirit of those stories...this quasihistorical fantasy should appeal to fans of Celtic Mythology and Arthurian tales." —Library Journal
About the Author
A lifelong writer, Roberta Trahan’s first works of fiction draw upon generations of family history originating in Cornwall and Wales, as well as her love of the mythology and culture of her ancestral home.
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a journalism degree, Trahan pursued a twenty-five year career in sales, marketing, and publicity. Eventually the lure of writing drew her back to her creative roots, and she is now a full-time novelist and core member of her local writing community—as a speaker, instructor, and member of several writing organizations.
The Well of Tears is her first book, but hardly her last. She is a Pacific Northwest native and currently lives with her family near Seattle, Washington.
