I grew up outside, so it is no accident that most of my books take place outside. walking and climbing have always been my passions. I am still doing them at 80.

My first novel, Circles of Stone, the fist book in the Mother People Series, was published when I was 65, and I have been writing novels ever since. So never, ever believe you are too old to do anything.

I am about to embark on the fourth Mother People novel after finishing four mysteries in the Laura Morland Mystery Series. They were fun to write, excellent exercise for the brain and a relief after the serious issues I tackled in Circles of Stone and the others, but my heart always remained with Zena and I need to write about her again. I would love suggestions from any of you who

Dear Raymond,
Thank you and your timing is excellent! I just finished the fourth book but it will be a while before its published. It goes to an editor next, but I hope to publish it by the end of the summer. It tells the story of The People of the Sea, former Mother People who learned to live by the sea when ice forced them to the coast of Spain. From there, they crossed the Atlantic Ocean by boat to the east coast of South Carolina. That actually did happen at a time when sea levels were much lower, though few people are aware of it. It is an exciting story told by a courageous group of explorers. The title so far is INTO THE FROZEN MIST.

Thank you for your comments. They helped me at a time when I was discouraged. Hearing from readers who enjoy my books gives me the impetus to go on. Joan Dahr Lambert(less)

Thank you for your comments. It is always so good for an author to hear from a fan who really likes her books.

So far, there are three books- Circles of Stone, Circles in the Sky, and Ice Burial, which tells the story of Otzi the Iceman. I hope to do two more. Into the Frozen Mist tells the story of how the Mother People traveled to the east coast of America by boat during the Ice Age, when sea levels were much lower. The other, still in the planning stages, will provide a possible answer to the enduring mystery of Stonehenge, which new research shows is five times larger than the Stonehenge we have always known. Of particular interest to me is that the research also shows that women played a significant, even dominant role in the building of this magnificent monument.(less)

“There will be people then who will remember that once we lived in harmony with the earth and all its creatures, and they will speak.  Some will argue, refuse to listen.  But others will hear the message, will know in their hearts that those who seek to protect the earth speak truth.  Their numbers will swell and slowly, very slowly, the web of life will be restored.”

Joan Dahr Lambert, ICE BURIAL The Oldest Human Murder Mystery

“Go, now, and tell those who wait for you that I have spoken.  Do not lose courage.  The Mother will be with you for many years to come.  And when the time of violence is over, She will return to the minds of all the people.  Because you and all those who bear your name have held Her safely in your hearts, the world of the Goddess, the Mother of all life, will one day be reborn.”
Joan Dahr Lambert, CIRCLES OF STONE
