In the summer of 1692, the infamous Salem witch trials were underway in Massachusetts Colony, North America. Meanwhile, a new Governor was appointed over New Hampshire colony, but his only interest was the land he felt entitled to. Citizens of Durham, New Hampshire, were losing property they’d farmed for years. It was a dangerous time to come to the Colonies, but Kate Tremont had no choice. Having lost her father and her home in Kingston, Jamaica, she sailed to Durham, New Hampshire to stay with her only living relative – William Stoddard, a farmer and devout Puritan. William demands obedience and conformity if Kate wants to stay, but that’s not the worst of it. Kate finds that enemies are easier to make than friends when she gives a doll to a child. When her act of kindness is twisted and used against her, Kate learns that evil happens when good people get angry!
K.D. Carter discovered the magic of the written word at a very young age. She remembers sitting under a tree at her grandmother’s house, reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales before she started 1st Grade. In her high school years she discovered the historical fiction of Victoria Holt, and the fantasy writing of Mary Stewart and J.R.R. Tolkien. After graduating she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, and was stationed in England for two years. While in England she toured Europe as much as possible, spending time in Scotland, Wales, Sweden and Norway, soaking up the history and culture of Northern Europe.
K.D. published her first book, Talamk an Eisc, last year, which she describes as historical fantasy. The story is based on the historical account of Vikings in Newfoundland, and is the first of a four-part Celtic Rings series. Her latest book, The Death Doll, is her first historical fiction, set in Durham, New Hampshire during the Salem witch trials. She is currently working on the second book in the Celtic Rings series, and is developing another book based on the Celtic tribes of Ireland circa 500 B.C. Both of these books are historically based, but contain fantasy elements such as spirits and druid magic. She expects to publish her next book around Christmas 2018.
