Q&A With the Author:
inspired your book?
the Legend of King Arthur, my students knew next to nothing about Guinevere
other than she married King Arthur, cheated on him, and caused the downfall of
Camelot. I wanted kids to see a more rounded character of a young girl not much

spend your free time

I like to do when not writing:

You have to make the readers care for the one who is losing and despise those who are winning. (more…)
