Prue lives in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, the island bunkered down to the south of the Australian continent. Having been born and educated there and despite living in other places, she and her husband moved back about 18 years ago.
She farms a cropping and wool-growing property with her husband just outside of Hobart and when time and seasons permit, she loads her Jack Russell terriers in the car and heads to a little ‘House’ on the coast to write, swim, walk and kayak.
She is university educated with a media and bookish background. The scholarships awarded for an Arts degree and for a postgraduate diploma in librarianship and her later occupation as a radio and television journalist were a past history that laid some hefty foundation stones for investigation, an absolute pre-requisite for the craft of writing.
Once Lady Ysabel Ce Courcey had thought that if she had been a trobairitz, she might have written a song about herself – her courage in the face of adversity that would have had the men and women in any noble hall sighing as they listened.
Now, on the eve of the Third Crusade, the denouement of the ballad is beginning…
Ysabel races across the waters of the Middle Sea to seek out Sir Guy of Gisborne because she has vital information that could save a king.
But above all, she longs to tell the wronged knight she values him and will stand back to back with him in a vengeful battle that could threaten all their lives.
Two people drawn by lust and a lost inheritance in 12th Century England
where status means power and survival depends on how the game is played.
Guy of Gisborne - a man of dark secrets accompanies Ysabel of Moncrieff – a woman of prominence, on a journey that rewrites history.
