Daisy Bourne Debuts with Fantasy Fiction Novel, 'The New Land'
"The New Land" earned a 4 star silver seal from the Pacific Book Reviews and was chosen as one of their five Books of the Month in January 2017. US Review of Books comments were also very positive.
The legend of King Arthur of the Britons, who was slain on the battlefield by Saxon invaders, is known throughout most of the world. Many Britons believed that Arthur was not really dead but, instead, sent to a place of safety by Merlin the wizard. Tales of Avalon Series continues the story where the legend ends with Arthur and a host of magical beings finding refuge in a far off world called Avalon.
The humans and the magical beings seek to live together in companionship. However, many adventures befall the Avalonians. In "The New Land," they must combine magic and willpower to defeat a savage race of would-be invaders. Will the Avalonians find the new life they so desire?
A snippet from the book reads:
While mortal men slept in their beds, three ships slid into a secluded cove on the British coast. Their passengers quickly embarked, and the ships sailed away just as they had appeared: silently, like ghost ships skimming across the sea. They sailed as far as the eye could see from the shore, and then, at the point where the ocean disappeared into the sky, the ships lifted from the sea into the air. A light was shining from a far-away star, and the ships sailed towards its brightness.
"The book promotes green issues and the importance of not cutting trees indiscriminately. The Tales of Avalon Series will appeal to 'Harry Potter' fans and followers of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy. Those who enjoy stories about fairies, elves, unicorns, wizards and witches will be enthralled by 'The New Land,'" Bourne shares.

About the Author
The author is proud to use her mother's birth name as a pseudonym when writing the "The Tales of Avalon Series."Daisy Bourne was born in England, in 1917. Nothing much is known about her real parents, except that their lives were changed dramatically by World War I. At the age of 6, Bourne was unofficially adopted by a farmer and his wife. They changed her name and took her to Canada. There are several similarities between the real Bourne and her namesake in this book. To a small child, Canada, with its heavy snowfalls, huge forests, and grizzly bears, must indeed have seemed like some kind of new world. The author's ambition is to one day write the story of the real Daisy Bourne. In the meantime, she is working to complete the other eight books in "The Tales of Avalon Series."
