The Dark Lady of Tintagel

Book One of The Queens of the Mist Series

The Dark Lady of Tintagel is modern and ancient, adventurous and romantic, and altogether magical. - Carol Beth Anderson, author of The Magic Eaters Trilogy

Crossing the Waves of Time
Two Women – One Entwined Destiny

Igraine, mythic mother of King Arthur, and Morgan, Sorceress, and daughter of the legendary Merlin. Both have their futures planned for them, tied to the fate of maintaining a magic Veil that protects the Kingdom from Wessex invaders now that the Romans are gone. The Veil’s magic is powerful but requires sacrifice and King Geraint is convinced it must be maintained at all costs if the Kingdom is to survive.

Igraine lives a sheltered life in Tintagel as a royal princess, kept safe in the castle at the edge of the sea, the High Seat for the Kingdom of Dumnonia. For years she has been preparing for a union to protect her people – a union with a man she does not love and a future trapped by duty. Her friendship with a sailor, Arthur Spear, and his rogue shipmates is not as innocent as her father would believe. Arthur and his friends are Igraine’s window to the world and nurture her greatest wish; Igraine wants to sail away, to visit Constantinople, and see the sights she’s only dreamed of from Arthur’s stories. Duty, however, cannot easily be denied.

Morgan has served as her father’s apprentice, doing his bidding and learning many of his magical secrets. But when his plans would harm innocents, she finds herself at a dangerous crossroads; is she the dutiful daughter or wrathful outcast. A chance meeting with Mordred, Prince of the Dark Fae court, proves more eventful than she knows.

The story weaves between the “dark ages” of early Britain and 1984, on the wild coast of Cornwall, at the archaeological dig at Castle Tintagel. Can fate be changed? Can a stranger from the future alter their world and our past? The Dark Lady of Tintagel tells the beginning of King Arthur’s story as you’ve never heard it before. A new twist on an old tale - the first in the Queens of the Mist saga.

Legend, Lore, Myth, and Magic. Can a fierce spirit overcome destiny?

Burned to a Crisp


Book One of The Gingerbread Hag Mystery Series

Nestled deep in the sleepy heart of Enumclaw - a little town in Washington state - Hedy Leckermaul owns a bakery renowned for its strange, sugary confections. Unbeknownst to the town, she also hosts mysterious visitors. Hedy, Adelaide the ghost, and Hedy's menagerie of animals, offer a place of safety to Enumclaw's supernatural travelers. Life in the little town in the shadow of Mount Rainier may appear picturesque, but things are often not as they seem.


Peace and tranquility rarely last, and it isn't long before arson and abduction rock the friendly town, turning the bakery's world upside down. Hedy must think fast when one of her own is now in danger. She has to solve the mystery before it is too late - seconds count before you are Burned to a Crisp.
If you like mysteries with talking animals, paranormal cozy stories, fairy tales, mythology and a hefty dose of cookies, you'll love Burned to a Crisp, the series by fantasy author KA Miltimore.

Burned to a Crisp is a creative and inventive mystery spun against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest. This well-conceived yarn keeps the reader guessing with a unique cast of characters both human and mythological.

Martin Shannon, Author of Tales of Weird Florida series

Diversity and tolerance are two of the book’s biggest themes, and though it wasn’t the author’s goal to write a book focusing on those virtues, the spirit of the times led Miltimore down that path.
