Flight of the Wren
A young woman's impossible quest will lead her to the end of the Viking Age
Hilja is just a little girl when the Norsemen come the first time. She's a teen and the Shaman's Apprentice when they return to take the rest of her village as slaves.
With her new friend, The Cursed Boy, she begins a journey that will lead her even farther than she could imagine.
Meanwhile, in Norway, the Witch of Vestfold, a secretive Seidr Woman, raises her kids in a cave as she tries to unlock the potent destiny of Lady Asta's son, Olav Haraldsson.
Young Prince Canute of Denmark goes to sea with his mentor, Thorkell the Tall of the mercenary Jomsvikings, while his father prepares his older brother Harald for the throne.
Across the breadth of Scandinavia, Flight of the Wren weaves a tapestry of history and fantasy that will bring you to the end of an era.
Voyage of the White Bear
In Book 2 of the Flight of the Wren series, Hilja continues her quest, voyaging to Greenland in search of her mother and sister, held captive by a ruthless band of polar bear hunters.
On his thirteenth birthday, Olav Haraldsson steals a boat and conscripts a crew for his first raid, while his mother makes marriage plans with the Earl.
Prince Canute conducts diplomacy, trying to rally Denmark's allies for war in England, while his mentor Thorkell the Tall is torn between his love of the Queen of Denmark and his family obligations.
Lady Asta is married in most unusual circumstances, even as her son ships out with the Jomsvikings. The Witch finally becomes the monster everyone believes her to be, and all the threads come together at the sacrificial altar at the Festival of the Gods in Uppsala.
The Loom of Bones
In the third volume of the Flight of the Wren series, Norse slavers return to Kokolu. This time, they find the village defenses bristling with steel. Hilja leads a rescue mission to Greenland in a captured Viking knarr, while the Witch of Vestfold makes another grisly sacrifice to gain the Gods' favor. Meanwhile, her children venture out into the world on their own adventures, only to find that they, too, are the pawns of fate.
Prince Canute of Denmark leads thirty thousand allies in the largest invasion of England ever, and one lone shield maiden becomes the key to opening the South Gate of London Bridge. Agatha Rothskilde finds love, sacrifice, heroism, and her self while protecting her royal hostages from dangers both foreign and domestic.
Thorkell the Tall leads his Jomsvikings to victory in Canterbury, but Olav Haraldsson's mishandling of the Archbishop leads to their downfall and disgrace.
While England burns, Norway goes hungry. While the Witch deals with an insurrection of mages in Sweden, her daughter impersonates her with disastrous results.
The saga of the end of the Viking Age continues. Read on, adventurer, and discover what happens!
Return of the Black Swan
In Return of the Black Swan, we begin to see the fabric of the Viking Age unravel. Olav Haraldsson returns to a war-weary Norway to proclaim himself king, and no one has the power to stop him. Meanwhile, Prince Canute inherits the crown of England, even as the deposed King Ethelred and his forces rally for a counterattack. Thorkell the Tall tries to win back Canute's favor and is given a mission that will test his loyalties.
Hilja embarks on a new voyage to deliver two of the Witch's children back home from Lapland, but their mission is fraught with mishap and danger. Paavo's father Veli attempts a difficult overland trek to Inari at the onset of winter to bring back Ilsa's sister in time for the birth of his grandchild, as Kokolu reels from a crone's bitter curse. In Vestfold, the Witch's daughters discover that they have been chosen as the new Norns, the Weavers of Fate, but they cannot begin to repair the world they know until they can overcome their considerable differences.
Agatha navigates pregnancy with emotional outbursts and pickled herring, even as she balks at swearing her loyalty to the new King Olav.
Grace Coffin and the Badly-Sewn Corpse
Something is brewing in Southwest Harbor, Maine.
Only two people know the truth about a tragic accident that claims the lives of a popular couple and one of them is dead. That doesn’t stop Cormac Boisverde from coming back from the Afterlife to set the record straight, even though he must make a gruesome choice to do it.
Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Grace Coffin moves to Southwest Harbor to finish Senior year at Mount Desert Island High School and finds herself embroiled in a supernatural mystery, even as she struggles with her past and the emotional pressure cooker inside herself.
With a bubbling potion of tenderness, toughness, and dark humor, Grace Coffin invites us into her backyard, where Undead creatures lurk in the shadows, teenagers break their curfews and no one, it turns out, is perfect.
Grace Coffin and the Undertakers
Southwest Harbor, Maine is the perfect coastal village, complete with Goth Rock-playing teens, zealous Christian school administrators, and Undead denizens.
As Grace and Oliver pursue their dream to start a band, their songs attract unwanted attention from the Christian Right and the Undead Left, embroiling them in a sinister plot to bring down the veil between the living and the dead.
Grace’s Undead neighbor Cormac journeys to Mount Hope, Bangor’s historic cemetery, to collect his wife’s bones. He finds much more than he bargained for, enduring a grueling gauntlet of trials in order to return home in time to help his friends survive the Maine Monster Mash, a battle of Goth Rock bands.
In the second book of the Grace Coffin series, Winter Fox’s unlikely heroes help each other over the hurdles presented by life (and death) with humor, grit, and a little luck.
Grace Coffin and the Ghostwriter
Out of the low-lying fog emerges a new mystery:
Cormac’s new venture, ‘Spirited Ghostwriting’ finally nets him a customer, and the story is dynamite. Famous movie star Isabelle Cake wants him to write her memoirs, which will ignite a powder keg of Hollywood secrets.
Meanwhile, with her band on hiatus, Grace goes to work as a waitress for an upscale catering company and gets way too close a look at the secretive celebrity culture of Mount Desert Island, Maine.
Is Isabelle Cake in hiding, or is she being held captive? Why is she writing her memoirs now, when she’s still so young? Can Grace keep her blood cravings at bay long enough to help Cormac find the missing actress before it’s too late?
In this third book of the Grace Coffin series, we discover why Grace hates lobster, the importance of having internet in your crypt, and why it's not such a good idea to keep a working collection of Medieval torture devices.
