A short tale of Queen Boudicca's rebellion

The unicorn has been rather quiet this year, and there is a reason for that. My children's publisher Templar, who published my Pendragon Legacy quartet about King Arthur's daughter, was taken over by a bigger company who decided that they would no longer publish fiction. I wrote a sequel to Spellfall called Spell Spring and proposed it to my original publisher Chicken House (happily still publishing fiction) but they decided it was too late to resurrect the series. Needless to say, the unicorn got a bit disheartened by all this, went into a sulk and vanished into the enchanted mist. So in his absence I've been busy launching a signature list to showcase my historical fiction for older readers under the name 'Katherine A Roberts'.

If you've been following this blog, you might already have noticed The Legend of Genghis Khan, which is currently available as a trilogy of ebook novellas (Prince of Wolves, Bride of Wolves, Blood of Wolves). I am in discussion with a publisher about this project, and there are plans for a paperback version soon.

In the meantime, here is a short tale about Queen Boudicca's rebellion that was shortlisted for the Library of Avalon Geoffrey Ashe Prize before the days of ebooks. It might make you look at Brexit in a whole new light!

Empire of the Hare

Please note books published on my signature list (under the name Katherine A Roberts) are intended for my older readers and may contain material unsuitable for children. As a guide, think certificate 12A.
