Welcome back to another episode of Author Spotlight. Today, I’d like to introduce you to TJ Green.
TJ Green was born in England, but moved to New Zealand 10 years ago. She currently lives near Wellington with her partner and her cats, Sacha and Leia. When not writing, she does lots of reading, gardening and yoga.
In a previous life she’s been a singer in a band, and has done some acting with a theatre company – both of which were lots of fun. On occasions she and a few friends make short films, which begs the question, where are the book trailers? Thinking on it …
Tom’s Inheritance is T J Green’s first book in the series Tom’s Arthurian Legacy, the sequel Twice Born was released in February 2017. Galatine’s Curse, book 3, will be released in March 2018. She is also working on a few short stories which further expand the world of Tom in the Other.
Other projects include a book set in the real world – whatever that is – but there will be unusual things happening.
Let’s take a look at her book, Galatine’s Curse – Book 3 in Tom’s Arthurian Legacy series.
Galatine’s Curse is a YA Arthurian Fantasy set for release March 20th, 2018
Here’s the blurb:
An ancient sword. A dark secret. A new enemy.
Tom and Arthur are living at New Camelot, and Arthur is hosting a tournament. Eager to test his new sword-fighting skills, Tom is competing, but while the games are being played, someone attacks their friends. Before anyone else gets hurt, Tom needs to find them.
Tom’s sword, Galatine, seems to be the focus of these attacks. Their investigations uncover Galatine’s dark history, and a family secret that reaches into the present. Tom has to act quickly if he is to prevent another tragedy.
Galatine’s Curse is the exciting third book in the series Tom’s Arthurian Legacy – stories about Tom’s adventures with King Arthur. If you enjoy magic, mystery, dragons, mythical creatures and ancient gods, you’ll love TJ Green’s re-imagining of the Arthurian legend.
Deep in the tangled centre of Inglewood, Tom eased his horse to a stop. In the silence that followed he listened for movement – the crack of a branch, the rustle of leaves, the skitter of footfall. Thick mist oozed around him, muffling sight and sound, and he admitted to himself he’d lost the hunt.
And now something was following him.
Tom heard the low throaty growl of the wolf moments before it leapt at him. He pulled Galatine free of its scabbard and lashed out, knowing he had only seconds before the wolf ripped his throat out. He felt its hot breath and thick matted fur, saw a flash of its wild yellow eyes, before feeling the sword cut deep into its side. It fell back into the trees, yelping.
Midnight bolted, and Tom grabbed the reins and held on, trying to calm her down. As they pounded through the wood, a branch whipped across his chest, knocking him to the ground. Midnight disappeared into the mist. Winded, Tom lay on the damp forest floor, wincing as he felt his ribs aching. He hoped Midnight hadn’t gone far. Enisled was a long walk away.
He rolled to his feet and immediately froze as he again heard the low cunning rumble of the wolf, followed by a spine-tingling howl, repeated again and again as the pack arrived.
He was surrounded.
