Prof cover The Black Swansby N. W. Moors

 

Book 1: The Black Swans

 

Taisie MacDonnell loves Celtic music and when a traditional Irish group moves to her small town of Antrim, Maine, she’s thrilled. She has no idea that becoming involved with Conn McLaren, the handsome pipe player will enmesh her in magic, a centuries-old enchantment and pursuit by the Fae.

“Irish folklore, Celtic music, knitting, time travel & love, and you’ve got the makings of a story written by someone who knows their craft.”

“The plot develops at an incremental speed and by the end of the book things are happening fast, with elemental forces, secret worlds and capricious hidden folk all playing their part.”

“The story is both modern (with the Irish Band of young people) and ancient with secrets of old Ireland. There is magic and there is love. You are brought along with all the intrigue and suspense that a good page-turner includes.”

CIR: What inspired this series?

MOORS: I took a trip to Ireland a few years ago and loved the music, stories, and lore.

CIR: Did this require any research, and what kind?

MOORS: I had read different Celtic legends, but I really needed to delve into the people in those legends to incorporate them into my story.

CIR: What would you compare this book to?

MOORS: I think it’s like the movie The Secret of Roan Inish.

CIR: What are the main characters like?

MOORS: Taisie is a small-town Maine girl, a knitter and very family-oriented. Conn is introverted, a musician, and very kind.

CIR: Is there more coming?

MOORS: There will be at least two more books that revolve around the town of Antrim, Maine. Many of the same characters will appear in each of the books, but the books can all be read as stand-alones
