Katie Roman

Author Katie Romanabout this book: The daughter of a lord, Grace Hilren has been brought up in a world of courtly arts. For most of her life she has been groomed to become the wife of a nobleman and manage his affairs at home, but Grace has other plans. Grace also knows how to use a sword and under cover of night she searches out injustice and destroys it. These unladylike displays cause her to become a pariah in the king's court and Grace finds herself exiled from the life she knew. So, Grace joins a new court. Taking up with the self-proclaimed King of Thieves the young woman learns her noble's pride may well be her undoing.

I find my greatest influences in writing this to be Tamora Pierce's Lioness Quartet, A Knight's Tale, and Batman. I used Ian Mortimer's The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century and Terry Jones's Medieval Lives as references to enhance the medieval world I created.

Fallen Grace is a young adult fantasy for ages 14 and up. The story follows a strong young woman trying to make her way in the world. I have enjoyed my time with Grace and am in the process of completing the series.
