Woman warrior historical adventure novels with first chapters and book trailers. Historical links to women

Queen Boudicca

The women mentioned on these pages represent a fraction of women warriors in history.  Records show that women defended homes, villages,and castles.  Like men they have duled for honor using sword or pistols. They have been spies, terrorist, bandits, and pirates.  They have fought in aerial combat, guerilla warefare, and hand to hand combat.

I enjoy writing novels with strong women.  My novels have been published and are available at Amazon.com and other online bookstores.  Bull Dancer and Onyx Owl are also on Amazon's Kindle
