She spent almost ten years as a state coordinator for the cancer therapy program Look Good Feel Better and time as walker for Riding for the Disabled and for the local Dogs' Home. She has two adult children, two dogs, and claims she has too much garden and too little time to write.
Prue writes historical fantasy for which A Thousand Glass Flowers (Book Three of the quartet, The Chronicles of Eirie) received a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers' Favorite Book Awards in the USA. She also writes historical fiction, for which Gisborne: Book of Pawns received an Honourable Mention in the 2012 Golden Claddagh Writing Contest (USA), a 2013 Rone Award (USA) and a 2014 Indie Book Readers' Appreciation Group's gold medallion (USA). The Huffington Post has done a story on her work and she has been interviewed a number of times by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
She has concluded The Gisborne Trilogy and has just finished writing Tobias, the first in an historical fiction trilogy called The Triptych Chronicle and which escalated to Top 100 with Amazon.co.uk (Biographical Fiction) within a day of being released. She has also completed two short story anthologies which are to be published in 2015. Each of her e-novels have ranked unbroken in Amazon.co.uk's Top 100 since publication and continue to rank, for which she thanks all her readers!

I must admit that the character of Ysabel does get on my nerves sometimes, with her internal voice musing things over for pages and pages and then making a seemingly incomprehensible decision. However this decision marks the start of a fabulous & dangerous adventure for Ysabel and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about it.
I will definitely read any subsequent books in this series; and the superb story telling has made me rediscover my liking for the historical fiction genre.
Gisborne was not my usual blood and guts, historical military or thriller fare, but being a lover of Prue's earlier Faerie fantasy works, I read it with some relish, only to find that while having nothing that would normally commend itself to my taste, I couldn't leave the book untouched for very long. It drew me in and along with the tale with the usual eloquent grace I have come to expect from Prue.
The second book of the saga - Gisborne: Book of Knights - has just been released on in E-format, and I finished it on Friday, having ploughed through it with gusto.
Book two has taken an interesting turn, as I suspected it might. The first quarter of the tale weaves along in much the same vein as the first, telling a tale of misplaced trust and hope, of damaged love and loss and the straining of hearts. To some extent I was a little wearied since the principle character (and narrator) seemed not to have grown up any in the interim and, if anything, had become a little more selfish and childish in her ways and actions, regressing a little.
Then, only a quarter of the way through the book, everything changes.
For Book of Knights is not a story only of the star-crossed and ever-troubled lovers, but also draws in threads of court intrigue, assassins, Templar Knights, deadly sea journeys, chases, escapes, duels and war. In essence, it has taken what I liked about the first book, but added a massive facet to it that will please a lot of people (myself particularly included).Read more ›
In a word, run don't walk to your internet bookshop of choice and read this marvelous series of tales. Book three Book of Kings is in the works...I am looking forward to that.

Enjoyed the book but not as much as book 1 in the series. The heroine's continued mistrust of Gisborne is extremely difficult to believe and becomes frustratingly annoying. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Oakhammer

This book lived up to all my expectations from book one, although it thoroughly frustrated me that Ysabel had still not learned the lessons needed to save them all. Read morePublished 13 months ago by elaine white
