Product description

About the Author

Award winning Australian author Alison Stuart always wanted to be a writer. Her family moved from Kenya, where she had been born, to Australia in the late 1960s. Alison studied Law and Arts (majoring in history) at university and has worked all her life as a lawyer, both in private practice and in a range of different organisations, including the military and the emergency services. A fatal attraction for men in uniform (including her husband) may explain her leaning towards soldier heroes! Prior to publication, Alison had been a finalist in competitions, including the shortlist of the Catherine Cookson Fiction Prize. Since 2007 she has published three historical novels set in the English Civil War: By the Sword, The King's Man and Claiming the Rebel's Heart. By the Sword won the 2008 Eppie Award for Best Historical Romance. She has also published the multi award nominated Gather the Bones and a historical time travel story, Secrets in Time, as well as an anthology of her published short stories. These days Alison is officially an empty nester, with an indulgent husband (and resident military expert) and two needy cats to keep her company. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
