PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SHALOTT TRILOGY IS NOW OUT OF PRINT. A BIND-UP VERSION OF THE THREE BOOKS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON
Book 1 of the award winning Shalott trilogy.
Through a virtual reality program, five teenagers are zapped back in time to the court of King Arthur.
Unable to return, they are caught up in the dangerous liaison between Lancelot and Guinevere, the deadly magic of Morgan le Fay, and Mordred’s ambition to rule Camelot.
Shalott was five years in the writing, during which time I learned a great deal about the ‘Lady of Shalott” and the legend (and history) of King Arthur. I’m happy to talk to schools and other organisations about the legend, its historical background and some famous sites associated with Arthur, illustrating my talk with colour transparencies of photographs taken when I followed the ‘Arthurian trail’ in the UK.
‘This spellbinding story weaves together past and present to create a tale that is at once dark and dangerous, and tantalisingly dreamlike.’ Maggie Hamilton.
Shalott, the first novel in the trilogy, won the Society of Women Writers 2001 Book of the Year Award in the Young Adult Reader category.
