Christy Nicholas

Author Christy Nicholasabout this book: Set in 12th century Ireland, Orlagh has a mission. She must find an heir to a magical family legacy. Unfortunately, this isn't an easy task, and her Chief has set her on a different mission. Eventually, she enlists the help of an old friend.

I did a great deal of research for this book, as I hadn't yet written anything in this time period. It was an interesting clash of three disparate cultures. The native Gaels, the invading Normans and the settling Ostmen (Vikings) made a tri-partite swirl of conflict that led to some great synthesis.

I also wanted to have a protagonist that wasn't yet another tween chosen one. Orlagh is a 65-year-old sarcastic grandmother who isn't afraid to say her mind, is confident in her abilities and her limitations, and does what she needs to do despite all the above. She is not afraid to demand her way, even if the person is of higher power. Sometimes this gets her in a bit of hot water!
