COVER REVEAL: Walk the Wild With Me

Even though I have another new Pen Name, Rachel Atwood, I have permission from DAW Books to reveal the cover of my next book, coming in December 2019. Rachel’s bio: Rachel Atwood grew up enchanted with British History. Now she writes historical fiction with enchantments. Every time she visits the British Isles she basks in the shadows of standing stones and glories in ancient crypts while drinking in the lush accents of the people she meets. She things driving on the left is natural and round-abouts efficient as well as aesthetically pleasing. This of course describes me perfectly and sets the stage for Walk the Wild With Me. In 1208 AD King John of England and Pope Innocent III divorced each other. The senior clergy was forced out of England and into exile or imprisonment. No sacraments except Baptism and Funeral were allowed throughout the lands claimed by King John. The church bells could not ring to mark the time of day or summon folk to services. Without the restrictions of the Church, the wild folk of the forests can roam freely again among humanity. Join with me and the adventures of Nick, a 12 year old orphan who was taken in by an Abbey but sneaks out often to learn about life beyond the Abbey walls. Much of this book was inspired by the book Walking with the Green Man, by Dr. Bob Curran with illustrations by Ian Daniels.

About Phyllis Irene Radford

Irene Radford has been writing stories ever since she figured out what a pencil was for. A member of an endangered species—a native Oregonian who lives in Oregon—she and her husband make their home in Welches, Oregon where deer, bears, coyotes, hawks, owls, and woodpeckers feed regularly on their back deck. A museum trained historian, Irene has spent many hours prowling pioneer cemeteries deepening her connections to the past. Raised in a military family she grew up all over the US and learned early on that books are friends that don’t get left behind with a move. Her interests and reading range from ancient history, to spiritual meditations, to space stations, and a whole lot in between. Mostly Irene writes fantasy and historical fantasy including the best-selling Dragon Nimbus Series and the masterwork Merlin’s Descendants series. In other lifetimes she writes urban fantasy as P.R. Frost or Phyllis Ames, and space opera as C.F. Bentley. Later this year she ventures into Steampunk as someone else.
