Kelly Gardiner is an historical novelist.
A Facebook friend in one of my MOOC courses, (who I am stalking, in the nicest possible way, because she finds and creates the best links!) posted a comment that sent me flying to a web site that just has to be shared.
The post was about a review of the book ACT OF FAITH by Australian author Kelly Gardiner. The book is set in the 1640s, and an intoxicating blend of adventure & philosophy the review suggests.
I had a wonderful time visiting Kelly’s page, I was sucked into a whirlpool of words. There are excerpts from her books, and wonderful articles to read. She has resources and research information, and some lovely details about herself.
Take some time to read the article, Aegean Odyssey, that she wrote as a travel piece. She had been researching pirates for years, for her books. The article is wonderful, and the blog site a little treasure chest of delights.
