Writing for me is a passion and amazing fun. It takes me away from the everyday world and to exotic places where my imagination can run free. An idea is born, sometimes from a dream, and once I start putting it down on paper it takes on a life of its own.
'Arianna - A Tale from the Eleven Kingdoms' was published in the Summer of 2016, 'Mystic Highlands Love Story' in January of 2019. You can find excerpts for your enjoyment on the books' own pages. If you would like to read some of my other works, please see my blog.
GC Sinclaire is an amazing writer and master storyteller. Her writing is utterly captivating. I found myself immediately drawn into her characters and will long remember their adventures, but beyond that, I felt as though I had entered their world and had been there sharing in their exploits. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to engage in a fascinating adventure. Your journey will begin on the very first page.
Author of Screaming Hawk, Screaming Hawk Returns and The Peaceable Kingdom.
The long awaited book is finally available this summer! As the story unfolds it reminds us a little of Harry Potter, a bit of Tolkien, and most certainly keeps us in suspense until the last page! This well-written story makes for an entertaining read for young adults as well as the young at heart.

A Tale from the Eleven Kingdoms
The Eleven Kingdoms had known mostly peace for many years. This all changes on the fateful day when King Vargos, the feared overlord of the realm, decides to make Arianna, the oldest Princess of Maridanmar, his wife. When the tyrant's envoy arrives to relay this demand, the princess agrees to ensure the survival of her home and family. Privately, however, she and her father have other plans even if this means that the girl will never be able to return to her home.
Arianna is much more than just a mere princess. On her mother's insistence, she has secretly been trained in a variety of subjects. The young woman has been taught magic, knows how to defend herself, and how to survive in the wild. Before long, she has reason to be grateful for her training and for the timely warning which advised her to hide her abilities. The woman her future husband sent along to take the place of her own maid turns out to be a powerful worshipper of the Dark Arts. The ruthless sorceress is in complete control of the troops and makes no effort to hide her hatred of this latest bride.
The treatment Arianna receives at the hands of her escort is beyond anything she has ever experienced before. The soldiers and even the envoy are terrified of the sorceress. None dare to displease the ill-tempered woman by openly helping the princess. Arianna soon realizes that the witch has no intention of letting her reach Darkmoor Castle alive. The princess had always chosen to be sweet and kind and live by the rule of doing no harm, but now the girl finds herself in a situation where she needs to draw on all her skills, knowledge, and resources to survive.
This is a tale of courage, determination, and coming into one’s own. We travel along with Arianna as she grows from the innocent princess leaving the security of her home to a strong and competent young woman who is able to embrace all of herself and who is willing to risk it all to protect those she loves. Arianna faces adversity bravely and makes new friends wherever she goes while fleeing from the henchmen of a cruel and wicked king determined to make her his bride. And, just when she thinks all is lost, help arrives from an unexpected source …

What will her stay at Seamuir Castle be like this time? Until recently, the lord of the clan, her oldest brother Ragnald, had been her guardian. One his first acts when he took over the rule from their father had been to break her engagement to the man she still loved.

She is immensely grateful when he stands with her as she presents her case to have her brother removed as the lord of the clan.
During the assembly, his fingers find hers under the table, and once it concludes, they rise, hand in hand. Hope is reborn in Ki'ara's heart. Is there a chance that Conall still cares for her even after all Ragnald has done to him? Could there be a time for love for the two of them?
