About this author

Where history meets romance. Alison Stuart is an award winning Australian writer of cross genre historical romances. Whether duelling with dashing cavaliers, wayward ghosts or in search of a murderer, her books provide a reader with a meaty plot, historical accuracy and characters who have to strive against adversity, always with the promise of a future together. Alison is a lapsed lawyer who has worked in the military and fire service, which may explain a predisposition to soldier heroes and men in uniform. She lives with her own personal hero and two needy cats in a historical area of Melbourne, Australia. Alison loves to hear from her readers and can be found at her website, Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.

However I have found that by doing some other hand, brain connected activity (gardening, needlework, jigsaws etc.)... it often allows the brain to just drift and amazing ideas pop up.(less)

The best reader feedback is that which castigates me for keeping them up until 2.00am because they couldn't put the book down. My work here is done! So readers don't be shy about contact a writer - you may well just make their day. (less)

After an extended break while I knuckled down to write a book in a short space of time, I am pleased to welcome you all back to my Friday Guest posts - nominally titled Friday Fun Facts... but rather more than that.

The Promise (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: This short story was written on a visit to New Orleans. Suffering a bad case of jet lag and not wishing to wake my room mate, I sat in the bathroom at 2.00 am and wrote it. It was inspired by a visit to Oak Alley Plantation on the Mississipi just outside New Orleans. It was first published in the Emerald Anthology of short stories put out by Romance Writers of Australia in 2007.

“Tom,’ he said quietly, ‘there is nothing I would like more in this world than to stay, but I am a soldier. I have a loyalty to my King. I have to go.’ A curtain of hair obscured the boy’s face and to Jonathan’s distress a large tear dissipated the blot of ink. ‘Don’t get killed,’ Tom said softly, his voice choked. ‘Mother thinks I’m too young to remember but I do. I saw him, all covered with blood, and Mother was crying and crying.’ ‘Your father?’ Jonathan asked, his chest tightening at the thought of what this child had witnessed. The boy nodded and looked up at him with brimming eyes. ‘I thought you were going to die too but you didn’t and I thought that meant you would stay.”
Alison Stuart, By The Sword

“She could, she had reflected several times, snap her fingers at the whole shipload of Thorntons and leave them to drown in the tempest of their own choosing. She could, if it were not for one thing. She liked them.”
Alison Stuart, By The Sword
