PRESS RELEASE: Norilana Books Acquires The Captain's Witch by Rosemary Hawley Jarman


Norilana Books has acquired the rights to reprint The Captain's Witch, an erotic dark epic fantasy masterpiece by the best-selling and acclaimed British author Rosemary Hawley Jarman. The title is scheduled for trade hardcover release in October 2009.

Tanith Lee calls The Captain's Witch "one of the greatest dark fantasies ever written -- in any genre."

Rosemary Hawley Jarman is a best-selling and critically acclaimed British author of historical, mainstream, and literary fiction, and most recently literary fantasy. She won the Silver Quill, a prestigious Author's Club Award, with her first novel We Speak No Treason. Her expertise in British and European history has garnered her an avid reader following, and she has written extensively about King Richard III, and the various queens of the British monarchy, the Tudor period and the wars between England and France. Her books have been Book-of-the-Month selections in the US, and serialized in Woman's Day in Australia. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines in the UK and France.

A Member of the Society of Authors since 1970, she has been dubbed "A Daughter of Mark Twain" by the Samuel Clemens Society in the US for her services to literature.

After marrying the late prize-winning author R.T. Plumb, Jarman (now Mrs. Plumb) lives and works in Wales, UK.
