We are gearing up for the launch of the second round of De Wolfe stories on KindleWorlds on September 6th. For my contribution this time I have written what I call a “contemporary medieval”.
How does that work? Hungry Like De Wolfe is set in London in this century, but the plot revolves around a descendant of Kathryn Le Veque’s medieval De Wolfe family. As my readers know, it’s a departure from my usual medieval niche, and I had a lot of fun writing it.
Blurb: Two great medieval dynasties come together. Le Veque’s De Wolfe Pack and Markland’s Montbryce~FitzRam family. The world will never be the same.
