Emma Shelford feels that life is only complete with healthy doses of magic, history, and science. Since these aren't often found in the same place, she created her own worlds where they happily coexist. If you catch her in person, she will eagerly discuss Lord of the Rings ad nauseam, why the ancient Sumerians are so cool, and the important role of phytoplankton in the ocean.

Emma is the author of the Nautilus Legends (a marine biologist discovers that mythical sea creatures are real), the Musings of Merlin Series (Merlin is immortal, forever young, and living in the modern day), and the Breenan Series (a young woman follows a mysterious stranger into an enchanting Otherworld).

I had originally planned on a May 2019 release for Merlin 3, but it's already half-done so it might be out by Christmas 2018. Here's hoping!(less)

Thanks for asking! I'm so glad you're enjoying Mark of the Breenan. I am
currently writing #2, and am over halfway done. My goal is to release it for Christmas 2015. I know how agonising it can be to wait for an author to hurry up and finish their books (I'm looking at you, Patrick Rothfuss and George R.R. Martin!), so I'll do my best to meet my goal. In the meantime, you might like my newest novel coming out on May 30th. It's an adult urban fantasy called Ignition.

Happy reading, and check back for Breenan updates! You can also sign up for my newsletter on my website emmashelford.com, where I send out (infrequent) mailings to let readers know about upcoming releases.(less)

Review: Under the Howling Moon by Melanie Karsak

I read Under the Howling Moon by Melanie Karsak. The caption on the description got me: for "fans of Vikings, The Last Kingdom, and The Mists of Avalon.” Check, check, and check, for me! :D
It was gritty and fascinating. I loved the descriptions of the Viking culture and religion, and the protagonist, a shield maiden with a terrible secret in her past, was easy to root for. The main climax was less Read more of this blog post »
