Melinda Salisbury

Melinda Salisbury lives by the sea, somewhere in the south of England. As a child she genuinely thought Roald Dahl’s MATILDA was her biography, in part helped by her grandfather often mistakenly calling her Matilda, and the local library having a pretty cavalier attitude to the books she borrowed. Sadly she never manifested telekinetic powers. She likes to travel, and have adventures. She also likes medieval castles, non-medieval aquariums, Richard III, and all things Scandinavian THE SIN EATER'S DAUGHTER is her first novel. She can be found on Twitter at @AHintofMystery, though be warned, she tweets often.

Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin must care for her sick mother while scraping together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke. When her village is evacuated as part of the war, Errin is left desperate and homeless. She turns to the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won't reveal why. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.

Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom?
