And that's a shame. Laura's book cover would be very easy compose a story for, a mysterious robed figure against a very dramatic background – is it a she? if so, how did she get there, what is she doing there – is this an ending or a beginning? Like life, so many questions, and searching for answers is how all my stories begin. Although I usually begin at the end; and smile when readers remark that most of my stories conclude with a strong finish. The exception is "A Ripple in Time" where I trust readers to work out for themselves the identity of the stranger on the shore.
The start of the Celtic Cousins' Adventures, "A Raucous Time" goes free tomorrow, for 72 hours until 11.59 EST 28th May 2013. Our boys have a pretty raucous time hunting for King John's lost treasure.
The story behind the story began with a simple idea – Why has King John's treasure – lost in the thirteenth century – never been found? There's no excuse really – apart from the sons growing up and leaving me with too much time on my hands but I continued musing: what if it wasn't lost, but hidden? Who would hide it – and why? If you'd like to discover more about how this story evolved, come on over to the Celtic Cousins' own site, where I'll reveal all.
