Author’s Note About The Twins of Thune

The Twins of Thune spoke themselves into my thoughts in a hot shower on a cold morning several years ago when the victorious end (or was it beginning?) of Princess Aleiyja played itself out in my mind. I finally emerged more than a little pruned from that steamy cocoon, eager to know more of this valiant young woman. I’ve loved exploring the magical world of Freeland and getting to know her people. Theirs is the age-old battle of good and evil… the ultimate quest of all men for the One who is the only truth in any world. I can’t wait for you to meet them. It is my prayer that their journey will also speak the truth of that One into your heart.

About StarDancer, Book 1 of The Twins of Thune

StarDancer and Storm Shadow are the last of the equine marvels known as the Hronya of Thune, born at the same moment in time as Princess Aleiyja and Prince Aleiyn-Jor, future rulers of Freeland. From the beginning the four have moved and thought as one and it is rumored they’ve been given abilities far beyond any before imagined.

But the realm is threatened by a dark menace far beyond any before imagined as well. Could these two remarkable sets of twins be the ones foretold in the ancient writings… the prophesied siblings-of-the-heart that will save their kingdom? Can ones so young and untrained become Warriors of the Realm strong enough to lead their people against such evil? What sacrifice will be required in their epic battle for freedom?

About Storm Shadow, Book 2 of The Twins of Thune

As the battle for Freeland has worn on, every corner of the kingdom has been touched by the Darkness. The enemy’s utter cruelty is breathtaking… beyond any the people could imagine. Now the Ladies of the Cliff have vanished. Tales are being told of a horrendous battle between their fabled Dame of the South and her evil sister. None can say if any lived or died and though the search still goes on, no sign can be found of them, or of Thune’s beloved Princess Sunshine. Now the Guardians must find the strength to fight on in the face of such loss. Now Prince Aleiyn-Jor struggles to make sense of life without his twin and, in spite of her sire’s efforts to save her, the great and magnificent StarDancer stands in a Glen Forest pasture, wasting away from grief.

Has the Darkness succeeded? Can Storm Shadow find a way to save his own twin from her sorrow? Who is Feona, the Mystery of the West? How could even the One possibly use such a little child to save Thune? And what greater price will be demanded of the kingdom?

About Quest, Book 3 of The Twins of Thune

Though it had been several generations since the defenders of freedom had defeated the armies of despair along the Plain of Amora, the malevolence that drove them was never destroyed and every succeeding age had known it was only a matter of time; that as long as this darkness continued to grow, the forces of good and evil would sooner or later meet again in mortal combat.

Now the long battle rages on. Now all the forces of evil are arrayed against the people of Freeland. Somehow the enemy has penetrated the very heart of Thune and their little Mystery of the West has been abducted. In the few short hours since the Lady Eloneena’s shocking revelation that Feona is her daughter, it has become clear that Mordok’s plan is to use the child to exact vengeance not only on her, but on the kingdom of Thune itself.

What the evil Master of Darkness does not know is that he is about to be confounded by the resourcefulness and courage of two little girls from Thune .But how can such little children survive in the trackless desert of the West? Can they escape the rage of Mordok as he cruelly drives his fearsome hronya through the air each day in a furious search for them? Who will find them first, and how will the Prince of Thune survive the pain and sorrow if another one he loves is lost?
