Welcome Shared Whispers Author Jude Johnson

Cymru Am Byth – Wales Forever is Jude Johnson’s contribution to Shared Whispers. Check out the blurb, excerpt, bio, and pic (Taken on Jude’s trip to Wales).

Blurb:

When Angie Edwards visits Wales, she finds the forlorn emptiness of Caerfilly Castle is not all it seems. Confronted by a strange man in medieval dress, she thinks she’s stepped into some sort of re-enactment. Or is her destiny somehow entwined with the legend of the Tower Ghost? 

Excerpt:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer cousin’s dark hair gleamed in the light as she tilted her head. “And this man you saw… his tunic had what on it again?”

“I’m not sure of anything, but I remember thinking they were three lions.” Angie closed her eyes, picturing the knight as he’d entered the room. “Yes, three red lions, facing left as I’m looking at them, tail up over their backs, one paw lifted.”

Blwdi uffern.” Gwen whispered. “Bloody hell. Llywelen’s personal coat of arms.” She set her tea on the table and leaned forward, brown eyes wide. “And this fellow called you ‘Angharad’—you’re quite certain?”

Angie nodded, frowning. “Absolutely. It freaked me out.”

Her cousin leaned back in her chair again. “You, dear cousin, met Gethin ap Caderyn. The Tower Ghost.”

“Ghost? No, this guy was solid, real. He cast a shadow.”

“Unlike all the other ghosts you’ve seen so far, I suppose?” Gwen arched a brow. “You think ghosties are as transparent as John Cleese in the Harry Potter films?”

Angie’s mouth dropped open and closed slowly before she replied. “You got me. But I’ve never heard of The Tower Ghost.”

“He seems to be quite particular about who sees him.”

  1. Oh, I am a huge fan of Jude’s writing. She can vividly take you anywhere with her words. Cannot wait to get my hands on this!

  2. Thank you for contributing to our blog, Jude. I loved your story.

  3. I’m reading Out of Forgotten Ashes now and I love the way you’ve oven your Welsh heritage into your writing. Looking forward to meeting you next month.

  4. Thanks for having me here, Rita. And I loved Nimue’s Daughter !

  5. Love the sound of your story, Jude. It is great to have an anthology to read when you only have a little time to enjoy a great read.

  6. Thank you Shelly, Rita, Linda, and Victoria very much! Shared Whispers is a great way to get a taste of different styles. Linda, when you come to AZ next month and wander the streets of Tombstone, you’ll “recognize” a number of places from Out of Forgotten Ashes. 🙂
