Coming soon from the pen, please welcome historical author Lisa Tawn Bergren!

In mid-June I shared with you Lisa’s awesome new series and today, get to know the awesome Lisa! What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres? Are there any other Christian Historical Fiction authors that you think your readers would enjoy? Are there bits and pieces that were cut in editing that you might ever share with your readers? I first started with THE CAPTAIN’S BRIDE, way back in 1995 or so. I was interested in following a group of immigrants from Norway, since that’s where my ancestors came from. And I found that I loved the epic backdrop historicals offer a story, so I’ve done historical ever since. I also write fantasy/time travel (River of Time Series) and have written contemporaries in the past. I think my readers would enjoy Liz Curtis Higgs, Francine Rivers, Angela Hunt, Julie Lessman, and Julie Klassen.. . .

With Merlin dead, the succession undecided, and the Celtic church on the defensive from Rome, intrigue sweeps the court of the High King Arthur. But it’s battlefield news that consumes Queen Gwenhyfar’s young scribe, Kella O’Toole: her fiancé is dead and her father gone missing.

Determined to find him at all costs, Kella defies the queen’s orders and sets out for Pictish territory. Her foster brother Alyn, a disillusioned priest who questions his calling, agrees to help her. The journey itself is perilous. But it’s their secrets that land Kella and Alyn in a viper’s nest of treachery that threatens both their lives and the future of Albion.

Can they summon the love and faith they need to find their way not only out of danger, but into happiness? Brilliantly researched, vividly imagined, and movingly written—a memorable climax to the Brides of Alba series.

Wolves Among Us by Ginger Garrett in stores April 2011 from David C. Cook In this richly imagined tale, Ginger Garrett takes readers to a tiny town on the edge of the Black Forest in 1538. In the time of “the burnings”–when pious and heretic alike became victims of witch-hunting zealots–a doubting priest and a lonely wife must grapple for grace and take a stand. In the medieval German village, a double murder stirs up festering fears. The overworked sheriff is baffled, so the village priest sends for help to solve the mystery.

But in the midst of it all, a man. . .
