About the Author
Recently, I've published two novels, A DISH OF STONES in the women's contemporary fiction genre, and NOTES ON A REBELLION, the first in the Notes From Random Knight series; a fantasy with a thrilling mix of dystopia and the medieval. Both were a joy to write and I'm currently writing A GIRL CALLED RANDOM, the second in the series, due to be released within the next few weeks. Although from very different genres and with unique problems to solve, the main characters in A Dish Of Stones and Notes On A Rebellion are young women with the ability to love without conditions and a determination to make life better for themselves and those around them. Kate McGuire (Dish Of Stones) is a gentle soul who grits her teeth and holds on to her beliefs to get her through. Random Knight (Notes On A Rebellion) is feisty, flawed and very loveable. I feel privileged to have them in my life. A GIRL CALLED RANDOM is a dark story; the perfect continuation of NOTES ON A REBELLION. Random Knight and Ethan Smith undertake an even more profound task than the rebellion in 2046. Zack reforms the Thayne army at Castle Trystan and commits a crime that will make every parent and grandparent shudder with fear. A profoundly heart-rending story of loss, discovery...and the most wonderful love of all.

Valentina's style of writing gives plenty of detail without getting bogged down in fripperies while the pacing is superb. There are quiet moments interspersed between the action and the torment and as for the ending, it was all I hoped for.
In short, this is an excellent period piece in every way and not only shows off Valentina's excellent writing skills, but also shows a knack for characterisation that some other writers could learn from.
