So It’s a day early but I guess Amazon decided Legendary is such an amazing YA book that it wanted to release it a day early! It’s official I am a published author with the first book in my 4 book series The Legendary Saga!
Here’s the buy link, and you can also order it in paperback edition for all my traditionalists out there!
OMG I am so beyond excited and nervous to see what people think about My King Arthur and my Knights of the Round Table! And of course the whole new slew of characters I created for this story!
Here are some very special images to go along with this amazing news!
All images are owned and created by me!
Can’t wait to see what people think!
Laters my lovelies!

Fury twisted through my gut. I loathed this magic keeping me from my king’s side and Lady Aliana. Watching her in that canyon- helpless to aid her- was torture. Again I am cut off, unable to protect her and see that my king- my friend is indeed safe. I failed to protect Arthur and now Lady Aliana. I swear I will not allow this again! ~Galahad

In an effort to not repeat myself or give away any spoilers for Legendary, I have been driving myself crazy today trying to figure out what to do for Galahad’s 2nd sketch. I was talking to one of the Lady Knights of my Round Table when it hit me, these are character sketches, why not share a little bit of info that I keep in my ‘Legendary story guide’. (There are a lot of characters and details in the entire Legendary saga series and even I have problems keeping them all straight in my head, so I keep a record of all the information and pictures safely stashed in my story guide.)
So here is some of the “leaked” character info on our White Knight
hair: dark brown
family history: Grew up with a younger si…… *Hey now no spoilers!*
Sorry got a bit carried away there. I am also giving you all another juicy little piece of art besides the amazing painting above. In the first scene where Aliana finds Galahad she sees a shield laying below a mounted sword. This shield is Sir Galahad’s and it just so happens that a bit over a year ago, back when Legendary was still being written, I decided to draw his shield hoping to find many uses for it outside of my personal inspiration. Now I have a use for it; tell me what you think of it!
Later my lovelies!

The Destined One looks so young, innocent even. But the shadows in her mesmerizing eyes speak of pain, loss and fear. Fear of me, yet she still fought me with a courage I have not seen from many females. The moment I felt her soft touch, something inside me broke. All I want to do is possess this girl. It’s a need I cannot seem to fight, yet I know I must–my first duty is to my King. ~ Galahad
In most Arthurian stories Galahad is the son of Lancelot but that is NOT true in my version. In Legendary Galahad is the cousin of Lancelot by way of adoption. My Galahad is definitely not the one found in books, he is still brave, honest, and very loyal, but he is also quiet, and has been known to brood something fierce and he communicates better with actions than with words.
Of all the Knights of the Round Table Galahad was always the strongest, fastest and the best swordsman. Only Arthur and Gwaine (or Wade as he is called in Legendary) had the skill to best Galahad, as often and Galahad bested them.
After swearing his oath to Queen Titania, Galahad found himself ambushed by a gargoyle then captured and imprisoned by the sidhe. Spending hundreds of years trapped by the sidhe’s magic changed Galahad in many ways. But then, as Lancelot explains, magic always has an effect on those whom it touches; it can reshape your entire being.
The things I love most about Galahad are his passion, his bravery and how deep his loyalty runs to those fortunate enough to earn it. Galahad was always Arthur’s most loyal knight, and still is, but after meeting Aliana, things changed and Galahad gives Aliana a very different kind of loyalty.
The loyalty of his heart.
But learning how to balance those two loyalties is no easy thing. And many, including some of his brother knights, don’t believe it is wise for him to give Aliana that loyalty so freely. But everyone has their darker side, even heroes, and Galahad has a particularly bad one. His deep loyalty also make him possessive and at times overprotective of those he cares about. He will do whatever necessary to take care of those who are his, but taken too far, that has the ability to shatter everything in a person’s life. Yet those feelings don’t come from nowhere, something has to happen to a person for them to develop such intensity; and that something is usually pretty terrible.
Okay, I’ve been debating about posting pictures of the two guys who first inspired Galahad’s look and after weeks of debating it, I’ve decided to go with it. Honestly these guys are just too darn HOTTTTT to not share them. So without further delay here are the two biggest influences on Galahad’s appearance.
