The Fay of Skye (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: She needs to learn magic or risk losing her gift forever. He has sworn to never cast another spell again. But falling in love changes everything... 

Etta Mae Cook, a mountain witch from Appalachia, arrives in London in 1895. Her goal: to study magic. But she steps off the train and into a dangerous world of politics, decadence, and power. Queen Victoria, the Prince of Wales, and the Fay clan are waging a silent war. In the balance: the future of spellcraft in the kingdom. Etta's lineage and magical power make her an asset - or a threat - to all three formidable forces.

Her choices skew when she meets Malcolm Seward, a mage of Clan Fay. He once held a prominent role in society, but a tragic mistake forced him to flee into obscurity. His attraction to Etta draws him back into the fray, but though she's drawn to him in return, she didn't come to England for desire.

Despite her intentions, their passion flares, and Malcolm falls for her. Now, Etta must choose: love, or ambition? Either path could mean the renewal -- or the destruction -- of British sorcery. If she follows her heart, will she doom their magic?

The After Cilmeri Series (14 Book Series)
From Book 1: "Sarah Woodbury is my new favorite author. Daughter of Time reminds me of Outlander and 1632, with a fresh twist. I read all the books in the After Cilmeri series in four days! Long after I finished the last book, the stories and characters stayed in my mind, and I kept wishing I could return the world Sarah so skillfully created. I can't wait for the next book and the next ..." -- Debra Holland, New York Times bestselling author of the Montana Sky Series.
_________

A medieval man with an uncertain destiny, Llywelyn, the Prince of Wales, faces treachery and deceit at the hands of friends and foes alike ...

A modern woman with a troubled past, Meg's life is in tatters when she slips through time and into medieval Wales ...

Only by working together can Meg and Llywelyn navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales--and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Daughter of Time is appropriate for teens to adults and is followed by Footsteps in Time, the next book in the After Cilmeri series.

***A note from the author: I am so happy to be able to share with you this prequel to the After Cilmeri series. I created Footsteps in Time and Prince of Time first, and only wrote Daughter of Time after so many readers wanted to know how the story began. Meg's journey is continued in Footsteps in Time and Winds of Time, a novella that is meant to be a companion to the series. Happy reading!
_________

--From The Kindle Book Review:

While a time-travel romance, the relationship between Meg and Prince Llywelyn of Wales is not cliché. It's truly two people struggling to overcome their different backgrounds and the current political climate of 13th century Wales to follow their hearts. The completely fresh storyline of a Daughter of Time is one of the strongest aspects of this story.

Daughter of Time is a sweetheart style romance in that the sexual scenes take place off stage, and an enjoyable look at chivalry in a way that explains how functional it was for the time period, and not just a cliché romantic notion modern readers have about knights in shining armor.

Overall, I give this book 5 stars and recommend you grab a copy or at least download a sample for yourself.

DESCRIPTION

India Steele is desperate. Her father is dead, her fiancé took her inheritance, and no one will employ her, despite years working for her watchmaker father. Indeed, the other London watchmakers seem frightened of her. Alone, poor, and at the end of her tether, India takes employment with the only person who'll accept her - an enigmatic and mysterious man from America. A man who possesses a strange watch that rejuvenates him when he's ill.

Matthew Glass must find a particular watchmaker, but he won't tell India why any old one won't do. Nor will he tell her what he does back home, and how he can afford to stay in a house in one of London's best streets. So when she reads about an American outlaw known as the Dark Rider arriving in England, she suspects Mr. Glass is the fugitive. When danger comes to their door, she's certain of it. But if she notifies the authorities, she'll find herself unemployed and homeless again - and she will have betrayed the man who saved her life.

With a cast of quirky characters, an intriguing mystery, and a dash of romance, THE WATCHMAKER'S DAUGHTER is the start of a thrilling new historical fantasy series from the author of the bestselling Ministry of Curiosities, Freak House, and Emily Chambers Spirit Medium books.

The Magdon Series (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: Dare to enter the darkness and remember your sense of adventure.

Have you ever wondered what else there is beyond the stories and myths you know? You may not have heard of The Magdon but it is there, in the shadows always watching and waiting.

Hadrian's Wall, Summer 1911 Archy is given the chance to spend his summer at the excavation of a Roman Fort called Vercovicium. One fateful day Archy stumbles across a buried tomb. Braving the dark Archy sets off in exploration and discovers a long forgotten part of history. The events of that summer open a new adventure to Archy that will change him forever.

Origins Of The Magdon: Vercovicium marks the first in a series of episodic adventures following Archibald "Archy" Skevington as he struggles to find out the truth behind the hidden monster. Archy's first encounter happens when he is only sixteen but the adventure lasts for the rest of his life.

Note from the author:
The whole idea of the Magdon came about when my youngest son as a toddler asked me what a noise was in the woods as we walked home. Instead of telling him what it was I made up the idea of the Magdon and since then it has been part of our family adventures. Between this and the constant questions and my sons have grown up I have created a whole mythology and background behind the monster. It was during a conversation with one of my children's teachers that I was told how much I had captured my children's imaginations and they encouraged me to write the story down. As a result I have decided to break down the "origins" story into a series to make it accessible to younger ages but also keep the story clean and to the point setting myself a limit of 10,000-12,000 words per volume. The fact my children have totally immersed themselves into the twisted world of monsters I have created it only seems fair (on them and me) that I share it with the world. So here is truly the madness of my imagination and something I have made so real and believable for my children.

Hopefully you will enjoy the adventure.
