Nine Tales Front Cover for webs.jpg

              Nine Tales From Wales: 
   Dreigiau, Môr-forynion, & Y Tylwyth Teg
 

                         [Dragons, Mermaids, & Faeries]

      Dragons, Mermaids, & Faeries - Oh My!

Told primarily for those unfamiliar with Welsh myths and legends, this is a collection of nine folk tales from the Land of Song: Three stories of Dragons, three of Mermaids, and three of faeries. Do not expect sparkles and glitter here; these are not cute cartoon characters with animal sidekicks. These are stories the Celtic people of Wales shared over generations to teach about responsibility, respect, life, and death. Not that there isn't a bit of humor involved, mind you now...

A Monster in a mountain lake, a human obsessed with a Mermaid, and wrth gwrs those pesky Fae causing all sorts of mischief... There may be a few of these tales that sound familiar - how Y Ddraig Goch became the National Symbol of Wales, for one - but in this book, they're told a bit differently.

A new century has begun in the Arizona Territory. Jamie Jones, eldest son of Evan and Reyna, finds his life complicated by prejudice from Easterners since he looks like his Mexican mother. But his stubborn Welsh half is determined to be accepted, so he sets his sights on winning the affection of Miss Iris Crawford, a newly arrived, aloof beauty with motives of her own. Percy Kindall lives the life of a privileged rogue in San Diego — until the day of his father’s suicide. Percy learns his father's penultimate act was to post a letter to a mysterious woman he's never met, Mrs. Reyna Jones in Tucson. Percy journeys to find her, learning more about himself along the way. When he arrives in Tucson, he recognizes a kindred spirit in Iris Crawford. Distracted, he makes clandestine arrangements for their mutual satisfaction. Unaware of the avaricious manipulations of Miss Crawford, Jamie and Percy’s lives collide and intertwine in a web of long-kept secrets, and complicated relationships — a legacy of blood and fire that will change everything.

Evan Jones thinks his troubles are over in 1886. He has married the Mexican curandera who captured his heart, and started horse ranching outside of Tombstone, near his brother's family. Reyna Jones loves her husband but finds his stubborn resolve more than a little frustrating. As a mystic healer, she is open to visions and dreams that often prove helpful - just not when it comes to understanding Evan. When former acquaintances reappear in their lives, from across the sea and beyond the desert, whether their intentions are for good or ill remains hidden. But one thing is certain: the Joneses are threatened by mortal dangers from both man and Nature. Soon they must stand together - or perish.

They left Wales-legendary land of Celts, King Arthur, and their embolic Red Dragon-for opportunity and new identity in the hostile Wild West: the Arizona Territory.

These are true stories of Welshmen who left their mark on Tucson, Tombstone, Bisbee, and beyond.
