Meet The Author

Hi, I'm Lori,

Thank you so much for visiting my book store.

Inheriting my love of books from my mom, I've been an avid reader from a young age. As such, I had a very misspent youth, often devouring fifty books per year! (No time for partying when there are books to be read!).

My first love will always be fantasy and science fiction, though I love any story well told.

I live in the beautiful county of Shropshire, in the UK, with my husband Matt, our three children, Jacob, Caleb and Jonathan, and our two whippets, Freya & Loki (yes, it's a very busy house!).

This book gave you insight into book 2 on Juaan Jr. Will anyone get any happiness or will the sacrifices be for nothing?

Reader Review

Did think it repeated a little too much of Daughter of Ninmah, but, on saying that, it was very nice to get a different point of view and I think it helps to understand Khalvir’s side of the story.At first I thought I was going to be disappointed, but I wasn’t 😊 and it just wet my appetite for more from the Ancestors series

While I enjoyed this tale the author repeated too much of the narrative albeit from different points of view. Still interesting.

Holds your attention throughout.

Am on the 2nd book of the series. My husband has read all at top speed, enjoying them completely.If you read the Earth Children series by Jean Auel, you will enjoy this series also.Fun read even if it does contain considerable brutality.

Best Series I’ve read in years!

I love the characters in this story especially Nyri. They are all believable with very strong personalities. The writer takes her time developing the characters, but not in a slow boring way. I literally could not put down the books. I stayed up all night reading the third in the series and I have COVID-19. The story is filled with twists and turns of adventure and emotion. I’m looking forward to the next book to be out. In fact I don’t know what I will do with myself while I’m waiting.

I. Am. Hooked!!!

The world this author introduces us too is both familiar, and yet, absolutely, magically differs from what my mind would have imagined. All without being overly fanciful. It's feasible, and tangible enough to believe it could have been true. The storyline, (while sometimes heart breaking), rings true without over-exaggerated brutality, or blind, love-addled romanticism to garner a broader audience. The characters are vibrant; fulfilling in their depth, without the cloying feeling of whininess I find authors often attributing to character's thought patterns. Their woes are true woes, their happiness hard-earned, and all the sweeter for their struggles. Both internal, and external. Many thanks to the author for this shining gem amongst identically shaped rocks. And congratulations on her two new bundles of joy. If you have a Facebook and you haven't liked this author's page yet, go show her some love. I sound biased, but I am positively -astounded- at the paltry 100-something likes, given the quality of her offerings.
