Lark and The Hornet’s Nest are now available in Kindle editions!
Set in seventeenth-century England under Cromwell, Sally Watson’s Lark combines historical intrigue with romantic adventure in the high-spirited tale of a young girl who escapes from her uncle’s stolid Puritan family.
The daughter of Royalists exiled to France, thirteen-year-old Lark finds the prospect of marrying her cousin Will-of-God so distasteful that she decides to flee to the home of her sister in Scotland. On the way, she meets young James Trelawney, a Royalist spy whose annoyance with her slowly turns into concern and companionship as the two experience many harrowing, and occasionally humorous adventures. An unexpected encounter with Will-of-God, and a battle in which James is seriously wounded, finally lead the pair to refuge with a band of colorful Gypsies.
How Lark’s grandparents rescue the two, along with the young King Charles, is revealed in the suspenseful climax to this adventure, which gives an authentic picture of a fascinating historical period. ~ dust cover insert

Fingers crossed that my mind, body and technology all stay functional at the same time now for awhile. We hope to finish fine-tuning the website and Sally has more books in the works too, so be sure to sign up for updates or follow her on FB or Yahoo for news.
Sally turned 90 back in January! She still loves to hear from fans – old and new, so we hope people won’t hesitate to wish her well this year and share how they’ve felt about her stories.
Due to technical difficulties, aka, the heat killed my laptop, further work on this site will be delayed. You can subscribe to up-date notices by e-mail or the RSS feed on the right sidebar so you won’t miss when new info. and photos of Sally get posted. She sent me some great, current pictures right before the hard drive gave up that I will share as soon as possible.
Hope everyone is staying safe in this heat!
