Maureen Peters
Maureen Peters was born on March 3, 1935 in Caernarvon, Wales. She was educated at grammar school and went to the University College of North Wales, Bangor, where she got a Bachelor of Arts degree and a diploma of Education.

For some time, she taught disabled kids, and then took up writing. She has contributed many short stories to several magazines and has produced many books. Maureen was also a known Bronte scholar, with her final two books being about Emily (“Child of Earth”) and Charlotte (“The Child of Fire”) with another focusing on all of the Bronte sisters, called “A Masque of Brontes”.

Maureen’s books often focused on royalty, mainly the Tudor period and the War of the Roses, and cover the lives of people like Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth I of England, Mary Tudor (Queen of France), and Catherine Howard.

She also wrote about other famous and less famous historical figures like Edward II of England and the many Queen consorts of various Kings of England. Besides writing biographical fiction on royalty (that she wrote under her own name), she also wrote contemporary mysteries, family sagas, Gothic romances, and Mills & Boon series titles.

Maureen also wrote as Sharon Whitby, Veronica Black, Elizabeth Law, Catherine Darby, Belinda Grey, Levanah Lloyd, and Judith Rothman.

Maureen’s debut novel, called “Bride for King James”, was released in the year 1968.

She died on April 8, 2008 at the age of 73. She was married and divorced two times and had two daughters and a son. Her final novel, which was called “Sun of Silver, Moon of Gold”, was released almost four months before she died.

“Destiny’s Lady” (also released as “Jewel of the Greys”) a stand alone novel and was released in the year 1972. Destroyed by her country, and used by her family. Lady Jane Grey never wanted to be the Queen. She never imagined that one day the heavy crown of the kingdom would rest upon her young head, since she was seventh in line to the throne. However her cruel and power-hungry parents had other ideas for her and used her in a desperate effort to further their ambitions.

Jane, as part of a plot against the throne, was married off at the young age of sixteen and proclaimed Queen almost instantly. But she was nothing more than a mere pawn in others’ hands and soon found herself being imprisoned in the Tower of London when Mary, Jane’s cousin, showed up in London. Even though she ruled England for just nine days, and just in name, she became a symbol of innocence and integrity to many of the lives that her short lived and tragic reign ended up touching.

During a time when it was perilous and often deadly to get too close to the crown, was she really the traitor that others made her out to be? Or was she really the victim of a ruthless plot against the throne? Presented against a backdrop of intrigue and glamour, this is Lady Jane Grey’s tragic story.

“Tansy” is the first novel in the “Malone Trilogy” and was released in the year 1975. Tansy’s family, who lived in a village forty miles west of Dublin, find her yearning for freedom rather tough to comprehend.

Raleigh Devereux, the English youth that Tansy first offers up her heart to, treats her like a plaything, while Michael O’Faolin, for whom she has no love but has affection for, never understands her need to remain true to herself.

Not until disaster hits the land, with the potato crop’s failure, do things conspire to bring her facing up against the reality, and with the complexities of her true nature.

“Kate Alanna” is the second novel in the “Malone Trilogy” and was released in the year 1975. Among some of the people that are escaping from Liverpool from the Irish famine are the Malone sisters: dreaming Tansy and gentle Kate.

However Liverpool teems with corruptions, new dangers, and violence. Tansy fights for her survival, meeting several odd characters while she goes: Donal the fiddler, Malachy who curates girls, Conrad Schindler (the old Jewish milliner that plans on changing her life), and Jan the American officer.

It is only when Tansy’s made her decision that events take a surprising and sudden turn, and the future of the Malones transforms into the promise of a new adventure.

“A Child Called Freedom” is the third novel in the “Malone Trilogy” and was released in the year 1976. Tansy falls in love the first time she looks into Tom Wolf’s eyes. However Wolf is a half-breed Native American going back to his dad’s tribe, and Tansy has got an elderly husband and a fragile sister, with whom she’s setting out for the New World with.

Tansy travels along the Sacramento Trail going to California, meeting up with a host of colorful people. Like Yellow Dan who is the friendly Native American woman, and Ma Perkins who never did make it to the altar.

Moving from the decks of the crowded immigrant ship to the neverending plains that stretch toward Fort Laramie. So Tansy moves from some of the unthinking passions of a young girl all the way to full maturity, and finally finds her true destiny.

“Sun of Silver, Moon of Gold” a stand alone novel and was released in the year 2008. When Flora gets sent off to America so she can live with her uncle she departs from a home where she’s always felt like the odd one out. When she gets to where she’s going she finds that her uncle has already got a housekeeper that is something more to him and that behind the luxurious and easy life that she has entered lay racism and sorrow.

For this is the America during the mid-nineteenth century when Native American Indians are being pushed from their homes and onto the dry reservations. And when the one guy that she starting to love is half Indian and Irish and is determined not to get caught in an English girl’s snare. How she reconciles duty and desire makes for an exciting and romantic tale.
