#NewRelease! Love, Betrayal, and The American Revolution–The Traitor’s Legacy Box Set!


The Traitor's Legacy Series Box Set.jpg1

To say the American Revolution captivates me is almost an understatement. I’ve been intrigued by colonial America, both the frontier (think The Last of the Mohicans) and, especially, the revolution, ever since I can remember. Not only because of research into family genealogy, although that pointed me there. I’ve long been engrossed. Such a dramatic time period, so much happening on many fronts. Not dry-as-old-bones stuff, but enthralling, vivid, and vital. OK, so they wore funny looking wigs. Not all did. Thomas Jefferson wore his own hair, among others. Even so, that doesn’t negate this amazing era.

Never before, or since, has there been such a gathering of brilliant minds intent on creating a new country, unlike any in the history of civilization. The exalted list includes: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas JeffersonJames Madison, Alexander Hamilton, James Monroe and Benjamin Franklin. (This is where I casually mention my kinship to James Madison.) These men didn’t always agree, but they came together to pull off the unimaginable, with help from some courageous wives, like Abigail Adams, and countless others who played their part.

Spies, intrigue, cunning, and betrayals are all going on behind the battles. The most infamous traitor of all, Benedict Arnold, inspired book two in my Revolutionary War series and the title–Traitor’s Legacy. When I wrote award-winning historical romance novel, Enemy of the King, I didn’t realize two more novels would follow. Yes, people also fell in love back then. I have that straight from the lips of one of the historians who assisted me in my research. A little paranormal crept into the stories, as it tends to with me, but the history is there!

New Release! The Traitor’s Legacy Series Box Set with all three novels. Available from all online booksellers. The novels are also in print at Amazon and The Wild Rose Press.

The Magick of Fairy Thimbles by Author Patty Koontz


Do you believe in fairies? Wee Darby and I most certainly do! Have you ever noticed a sparkle of tiny lights or gotten a quick glimpse of flickering movements from inside flower petals or beneath a cluster of wildflowers? Or even “thought” you just “might have heard” some giggling or sounds of flutes playing soft whimsical tunes, while taking a stroll by fragrant, colorful flowers, that made you smile for no reason? If so, the next time you decide to go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature, you might want to take a closer look . . .

Glens of Antrim, Bluebells, Portglenone Forest, Ireland

Have you ever heard the legend of the Bluebell Fairy Thimbles – then you’re in for a grand surprise when you read about the fairies that live in the fields of bluebells, which grow wild in Ireland and Scotland.
canstockphoto14778167Wee Darby and his fairy niece, Pantera, are delighted to share a wee bit about the magical lore…The legend tells of fairies that live among the bluebells growing in charming meadows and visited by hares (rabbits).  And humans, (or Krindles, as the fairies call us from what I’ve learned from Wee Darby), should be careful not to disturb or pick these flowers – you never want to anger the fairies – as they can play tricks on you.
canstockphoto19508726 Its been told how people even believed that witches turned themselves into the hares and hid among the precious plants to keep out of sight and danger. Make sure you ask permission first – the next time you get the urge to pick the precious plants . . . .
You might be surprised at just “what” or “who”  you might find…

Geese Do Not Make Good Publicists–Cat’s Rule


I’ve spent the summer stalking our barnyard/farm geese–an old breed that came over with the Pilgrims. I think. They’re called Pilgrim Geese. The more these squawky birds see me, the more they fuss. I’ve been nothing but kind, and sneaky. I’m doubling my efforts because they bolt at the barest rustle in the grass and click of the camera. Otherwise, I’d feature them with my books. Until I figure out how to win them over–tossing feed just scares them. Crazy lady’s throwing stuff–I’m using my feline publicists Peaches and Cream. They do a fabulous job of representing me and my growing titles. Unless Cream falls asleep in the middle of a photo shoot, which he did this time.

Typical of the geese below.

Kitty Peaches, below, is excited to tell you historical/paranormal romance novel, Traitor’s Curse is .99 in kindle through 9/09. It’s book 3 in The Traitor’s Legacy Series, but written to stand alone.
