New Book - help it become reality!

William and the Werewolf

(William of Palerne)

William and the Werewolf is a fourteenth century romance about two princes deprived of their inheritance. One, Alphonse, is turned into a werewolf by his jealous stepmother; the other, William, is about to be killed by agents of his wicked uncle, when the werewolf rescues him.


William's relationship with the princess Melior is a highlight of the romance, working with him to bring dynastic stability once more to their lands. 

As with my other works, William and the Werewolf will be richly illustrated with specially-created linocut prints..

The book is being crowdfunded; everyone who supports it is recognised as a patron, with their name printed in the back.
