by Barbara Russell
Genre: YA Arthurian Steampunk Fantasy Romance

A Knight in Distress
New Camelot #1
Knights are supposed to rescue damsels. That’s the natural order. So when Nathair, a knight in training, finds himself rescued by the princess he’s supposed to save, he’s annoyed. And when the princess proves she can fight like a knight? Well, that’s enough for a boy to think about a career change.
A Damsel in Shiny Armor
New Camelot #2
After fighting dragons, wild Vikings, and clockwork monsters, Nathair is facing the biggest challenge of his life: proposing to Bryhannon. Apparently, flowers and a three-month salary worth ring aren’t enough because she doesn’t seem thrilled by the proposal. She has a devastating power to control, Reapers to face, and more importantly she has to find the courage to tell Nathair that she’s a Morrigan.
I’m an entomologist and a soil biologist, which is a fancy way to say that I dig in the dirt, looking for bugs. Nature and books have always been my passion. I was a kid when I read The Lord Of The Ring and fell in love with fantasy novels.
When I discovered cozy mystery and crime novels, I fell in love with Hercules Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. Then I grew up and . . . Nah, I’m joking. I didn’t grow up. Don’t grow up, folks! It’s a trap.
PS I hate gardening. There, I said it. Sorry fellow Kiwis.

Thank you for hosting me 🙂
Hi! It’s my pleasure! Welcome to the Dragon’s Den. Do you have a favorite quote from your book you’d like to share?
Hi there, thanks for the question!
There’s this bit I’d like to share (This is after the princess rescues the knight 😉 ):
With a growl, Nathair sprinted after Bryhannon. “I’m sorry for being late, but my journey hasn’t exactly been a vacation.”
She ignored him.
“I should’ve rescued you. It was my mission, my quest.”
She halted, her chest heaving, and Nathair guessed it wasn’t from the exercise.
Her steely gray eyes flashed like a blade caught in the sunlight. “So I should’ve rotted in that stinking dungeon waiting for you?”
“I would’ve come to help you.”
“Please, you were stuck. In fact, you’re breathing right now, thanks to me.”
“I had everything under control.” He didn’t believe it for a second, but Ewhen had told him to use this line every time a girl was angry for something he’d done.
That is great! I love when the princess rescues herself and then the knight. It sounds like a fun story!
Many thanks!! It’s epic fantasy, but it’s not serious 🙂
Serious is overrated! What was your inspiration for the book?
I just love Arthurian legends. I read many, many books on them, both fantasy and non-fiction, so I thought why not give it a steampunk twist? 🙂
Arthurian myths are one of my favorites as well. What a unique spin on a familiar legend! Good luck with the tour and the book!
Many thanks!! 🙂
