Teresa Edgerton is the author of eleven novels, as well as short fiction, reviews, interviews, and articles on writing.She believes she has been telling stories since she first learned to talk. Sixty years later, she is still inventing them.Largely unaware, when she began to write seriously, of the realities of publishing, it took her almost ten years to finish, sell, and see her first novel published. Ignorance may not be bliss, she says, but it can be a great encouragement in situations where someone wiser and better-informed might have walked away. That first novel, Child of Saturn, was a finalist for the Compton-Crook award.Having (temporarily) slaked her thirst for epic fantasy by writing one trilogy, she went on to write the dark/alchemical fairy tale, Goblin Moon. It enjoyed a modest success at the time, and gained an enthusiastic following over the next two decades.She currently lives with her husband, three adult children, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law-elect, two grandsons, assorted pets, and more books than you might think would fit in the remaining space.____________Teresa has also written two books under the pseudonym Madeline Howard. You can find those books on amazon, too. Look for "The Hidden Stars" and "A Dark Sacrifice."

The sequel to Goblin Moon, it was originally published as The Gnome’s Engine. To be frank, I don’t understand the change of name. Personally, I felt the original title is more relevant to the main thrust of the plot. The story continues where the previous book left off. The sorcerer Thomas Kelly a...

This is a fantasy novel set in a world of Men, dwarves, gnomes and fairies, but instead of the usual medieval period setting, the milieu is more akin to the eighteenth century. The period detail is fantastic and the writing is sumptuous. The characters are well drawn. There’s an alchemist-turned-boo...

Interesting read. Georgian feeling period piece. A good mixture of politics, action and romance. I was first annoyed with the main characters and then came to like both Will and Lili, I both understood and empathised with the issues and problems they had. It was a different experience to see how...

Dickensesque. Much grit, then later, a wisp of Pickwick. Sadly I got bored and was far from pleased with the unresolved ending. I have, however, ordered the second book to see....
