I'm well into the first draft of  THE WHISPERING WIND (Book #1 The Kingdom of Northumbria) now - around 60% through. The novel is steaming along and I'm really excited about it.

The new cover is at the designer so I will be able to reveal it soon!

THE WHISPERING WIND is the tale of Aelfwyn and Leofric. She's a handmaid to a queen and he's the disgraced son of an ealdorman. Their paths cross on a windswept beach and are then entwined.

He is her savior
She is his salvation

Here's how I envision Aelfwyn.

Innocent and gentle-hearted, and handmaid
to the Queen of Northumbria, Aelfwyn soon
 learns that if she wants to survive, she'll need
 to face life's harsh realities.

Here's how I see Leofric.

Cocky and reckless, Leofric has spent his life
pleasing himself - until a thoughtless comment
 sees him exiled to Lindisfarne Island, and 
life as a monk.

The story brings two very different characters together - a selfish young man and a sheltered young woman who are ultimately meant for each other. This romance is about the redemptive power of love. It can heal us, strengthen us - and redeem us.

More details on THE WHISPERING WIND coming soon - including details about the novel's various locations: Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Whitby, Lincoln and York (which all had very different names in Anglo-Saxon times).
