Author Biography

Ha... I really am a descendant of the Mayflower.

I love Yoga, Zumba, and DIY house projects. My latest fun toy is a tile cutter. Wheee. What else can I tile?

I grew up in New England, in Vermont and have always enjoyed making up stories. When I was a kid, nothing was sacred. Crayons would fight other crayons for placement in the box. Street lamps, when they lost their bulbs, would cry. Needless to say, I still have an active imagination.

I've visited London only once, and my daughter lives in Rome. I love going across the ocean. I am one of those people that all other travelers hate. I lay back, when the plane takes off, and awake when the plane touches down.

I have two grown daughters, a husband who loves to edit my work, and two cats that jump on my keyboard when I am not watching. Blame them if you see typos. Cheers and thanks for reading.

How to Train Your Knight by Stella Marie Alden is the story of Ann, a woman who learned from a young age that men are hurtful and to be feared. With one failed marriage that ended suddenly when her husband died, Ann is afraid for her life when she is forced to marry again, this time to a man who is known for his fierceness on the battlefield and nicknamed The Beast. Marcus, The Beast, has been charged with marrying Ann and finding out if she is the witch and murderess that she is rumored to be. With his own haunting past, Marcus fights to claim the woman who confuses, challenges, and makes him feel things he's never felt before. Through trial and error, Marcus is able to gain Ann's trust and show her that not all men are the same, just as Ann shows Marcus that sometimes a challenge isn't a bad thing. As problems mount and rumors abound, can Ann and Marcus survive and make it back from court with their heads intact?

How to Train Your Knight by Stella Marie Alden is the heartbreaking yet heartwarming tale of two people from vastly different pasts who are haunted by the things they've seen and had inflicted on them. With imagery that places you in Ann's and Marcus' shoes, you feel everything they've gone through, both the good and the bad. With a creative and believable plot, How to Train Your Knight will show you what it would have been like to live in that period if you were unlucky enough to have a father or marry a man who blamed everything on the women in his life. I had a hard time putting How to Train Your Knight down and will be looking for more books by Stella Marie Alden.
