I just got delivery of a paperback copy. What a crazy feeling to see the real thing, the printed thing, in my hand. In the acknowledgement section at the back of the book I thanked a lot of people, including the two editors who helped me along the path from early draft to the finished story, and all my Beta readers, but there are a few others I should thank. First, I should thank my daughter Kate...
Once upon a time in the Téuta, the ground shook. The cliff fell, and boulders came tumbling down, crushing everything and everyone in their path. The surviving villagers blamed Welo, the nightmare giant, for the disaster.
When little blind Kaikos notices mysterious spiritual activity on the ground, she must keep it a secret. The villagers will not hesitate to sacrifice Welo’s cursed granddaughter if it stops the earth from shaking again.
With the fragile line between love and hate erased by fear, Kaikos must brave growing darkness to survive.
The Téuta’s Child is a gripping tale of loss and redemption, set in neolithic times.
