NANCY JARDINE loves the challenge of writing across different sub-genres of fiction.
She was a finalist in THE PEOPLE'S BOOK PRIZE 2014, Fiction, for her contemporary mystery thriller TOPAZ EYES. Fantastic world locations that she's adored visiting are included in her other contemporary mysteries - MONOGAMY TWIST and TAKE ME NOW - to give her readers that sense of having hitched a ride to those amazing places with her, though they're at liberty to slope off when the assassins appear and spoil the fun!
A life-long history enthusiast, her CELTIC FERVOUR SERIES of historical romantic adventures allows her to immerse her readers in late first century Roman Britain, in a bygone era where her Celtic warrior clan faces the legions of the mighty Roman Empire. Her readers can wield their imaginary Celtic sword or Roman gladius as the escapades unfold.
THE TAEXALI GAME - Book 1 of The Rubidium Time-Travel Adventure Series for a Middle Grade/ YA market is set in AD 210, Roman Britain, when the Roman Emperor Severus wreaks havoc on the northern clans.
Her writing in progress includes a family saga based in her native Scotland beginning in Victorian times; Book 4 of her Celtic Fervour Series and Book 2 of The Rubidium Time Travel Adventures. Writing tends to be during the late shift while the days flip past playing with her resident grandchildren. Nancy regularly blogs; frequently helps to promote the work of other authors; and reads and reviews novels written across many sub-genres of fiction.
What others say of her writing:
TOPAZ EYES "This is a stunning read, which absorbed my attention from the beginning."Jane Bwye
CELTIC FERVOUR SERIES...
#1 THE BELTANE CHOICE " is one of the most convincing evocations of Celtic Britain that I have ever come across, and the central romance stands out against that background with great passion and immediacy." Simon Stirling, The Review Group.
#2 AFTER WHORL: BRAN REBORN "As in The Beltane Choice, the author brings the culture and society of Celtic Britain vividly to life - and in this book there is also an intriguing contrast with the ordered, militaristic lifestyle of the occupying Romans. An engaging tale, with fascinating insights into Celtic/Roman Britain." Tim Taylor
#3 AFTER WHORL: DONNING DOUBLE CLOAKS "...this is a powerful tale of ordinary people responding to extraordinary circumstances." Dr. Mark Patton
