Werewolves Down Under

The eighth book of the Legacy Series is finally coming!

This one was incredibly difficult to write. Not only because of the pure emotional context of the story, but also because of the sheer amount of research that was needed for me to understand the setting, people, and history. Australia has a relatively short civilized history and I could probably tell you just about anything regarding the first three or four years of the settlement at Sydney. Yes, it was a penal colony for England, which made it fraught with violence, lawlessness, and danger. Perfect place for a werewolf! My research was eye-opening and insanely interesting. Most people may not think that reading historical accounts is terribly interesting, but it was for me. And I hope I’ve done both the country and its people justice with my little historical novella.

Preorder is up and release is set for June 22nd!

The-Scholars-largeAustralia – 1791
Geoffrey and Adam Swenson are imprisoned on a ship, bound for Australia – then known as New Holland – under bogus criminal charges pressed against them in England. After they escape and flee from the budding settlement of New South Wales, they find that they are not the only werewolves on this strange and dangerous new continent. In desperate need to return home, they must align themselves with unlikely allies and set aside old grudges if they ever expect to survive.
The elements, the Aborigines, and the loose laws set down in the penal colony of Sydney all work against them. Death lurks behind every corner and even though a new ally appears, both are hesitant to trust a man who has already shown himself to be a flight risk in the past. But all Alfred Swenson wants is a chance at reconciliation with his family after being absent from their lives for over four hundred years.
