Welcome everyone to the garden. It's blustery out today so of course it reminds me of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. I'm moved us to the Rose House so we' don't blow away! Fill up your plates with goodies and pour yourself your favorite beverage and find a seat. Today we have Kimbra Kasch in the garden and she'll be telling us a little about Vikings.
Thanks to Mary for having me here on her blog to share my love of reading, writing and telling lies because isn’t that what all fiction writers do…tell lies for money?
When I started writing those stories down, the characters were like old friends and I was simply sharing their stories.
Nowadays, those characters I write about are old friends. I can’t simply say goodbye once I finish the book. Their stories live on…just like friends. So, there’s always more to tell, more to share and more to write about.
Maybe that’s why I love books that come in series so much. Once I invest a couple hours, or even days in reading a book, I want to know more about the characters and once I write a story, I’m even more invested in those characters and I don’t want the story to end.
That’s why I wrote THE VIKING SERIES. The story is based on Arthurian legends but this series comes from the perspective of the Vikings—not the Knights of the Round Table. After all, everyone knows the English legends but few have heard the Scandinavian tale.
I started out with the romantic adult version of THE VIKING PRINCESS. Then I told the tale of THE VIKING QUEEN. And I wasn’t finished with the story there. I am currently writing THE VIKING PRINCE.
The Viking Princess (The Viking Series Book 1)
Two warriors who never thought they’d find love, especially on the battlefield, but poised against each other, Morgaine and Holger face an attraction more powerful than any sword, stronger than any warrior and more magical than all the powers of Merlin.
Lost in the annals of history, the story of legendary hero, Holger Danske, and his magical romance with King Arthur’s half-sister and the most powerful sorceress in all of history- The Viking Princess has never been told...until now.
Besides those tales, I’ve also written MORGAINE LE FAY AND THE VIKING, which is the first young adult version of the tale.
One thing all these books share, besides the characters, is the setting. This story travels across countries, continents and cultures. The Viking series includes the Scandinavian lore, the English legends and even French tales. And, I hope you’ll take a peek at one of my books and give me the chance to lie to you for a minute.

Hi everyone! I'm a romance writer who grew up in a family with 9 kids and only 1 t.v. so I spent my days reading and, later, writing. I love books. . .maybe because I never got to pick the t.v. shows we watched. But I’d run home after school to catch the last fifteen minutes of Dark Shadows...
I still love to run...or at my age, maybe I should say, “I love to wog,” (a cross between walking and jogging). Here in Portland, I love Halloween themed runs - where people don costumes and run. It's a lot of fun...and I know those two words don't always go together: fun...and...run. But it is.
And, with all those Halloween themed runs, I guess Dark Shadows had more of an influence than some people might think. Even today my favorite author is Stephen King. My all-time favorite book is Salem's Lot.
Favorite romance novels are The Hunger Games...okay, I know, it's a survival book but it's really all about romance. Then there were the series: Twilight, Fifty Shades, and more but I also love paranormal, Horror and even light books like Dewey the Small Town Library Cat... Mainly, I just love to read. . . and write.
I've just had my first novel published and am looking to share it with the world. It's a story I was inspired to write after visiting Hamlet's Castle and seeing an enormous Viking statue down in the tunnels next to the dungeons.
Sorry to be so long-winded but did I say I love to write? ...and talk and...knit, and sew, and bake... I could go on but I'll close by saying, I hope you’ll stop in on my site and I can tell you I have a couple other stories you should check out: How about a story about a Demonic Tattoo artist in Portland, Oregon: Demon’s Ink? Or, how about a love story? Of course we all know love is risky, but in The Cats of Cullaby Creek it’s dangerous….
