Before there was D-Day…

For over two years, she’s watched him.
Now he’s on her doorstep.
This is life in the Resistance.

In Normandy in 1943, Victoire leads a band of the Resistance. When Leal, the man she’s had watched for over two years, arrives at her doorstep, she’ll have to face new challenges in war and in love.

Robberies, a kidnapping and clandestine night adventures were not at all what Victoire planned for her life. And she most certainly never planned to be betrayed. But war— and love— are unpredictable. Joined by her friend Rainier who is mistrusted by Leal, the mysterious Voleta, and Father Pierre, Victoire and Leal must struggle for survival, the grounds of France, and the material of their souls.

When Leal unearths a twenty-five-year-old secret, with Victoire at the center, her whole life is shaken. As the Allies approach, the past, present and future hang in the balance. Can anyone be trusted when the world spins upside down?




A Word from the Author

Megan Easley-Walsh, Author PhotoIn my writing, I aim to bring light and hope into the darkness. FLIGHT BEFORE DAWN is set in the midst of WWII, when peace was hoped for, but not yet certain. Having visited the beaches of Normandy, I wanted to infuse life into the past again, so that those who strove for freedom would be remembered. The story centers around the role of the French Resistance in the build-up to D-Day and the mystery that Victoire, a female Resistance leader, becomes a part of. She is used to concealing secrets, but has no idea that for decades a secret has been kept about her. The Resistance has watched Leal for over two years. When he arrives on Victoire’s doorstep, her place in the war will become more complicated. Now she has to contend with secrets and with love. War demands more than she could have imagined, but peace and light looms on the horizon and will dawn again.

Suddenly, at the end of the twenty-first century, the world changes. The tycoons rule and name themselves kings. The times are rife with extravagance and decadence, extreme power and richness. The world is one big party. And there is chaos!
No one seems to wonder how this all came to be. No one seems to wonder what is actually happening. No one seems to care about anything anymore. Except for some odd outsiders. One of them is Oscar Man, the illegitimate son of tycoon Otto Man. Once he was a prince; then he became a pariah, a jester, with nothing to lose for himself and so much to win for the world…
In these turbulent times, the Second Renaissance, strange creatures come into power and try to subject every single human being to their will. They make the poor jester Oscar Man dance. But ultimately Oscar will manage to solve the biggest problems the world has ever faced!




A Word from the Author

author-koos-verkaik-pictureThe Dance of the Jester brought me from The Netherlands to the USA: Mr. Bill Thompson (the editor of Stephen King and John Grisham) invited me to discuss the book. On a scorching hot day, we found ourselves in his office in the Empire State Building in New York and together we revised and polished the manuscript and made changes in the plot.
The book is published in The Netherlands (De Dans van de Nar) and now in the USA.
I call it my most intellectual book.

Troy Turner lives alone in his lake-side cabin nestled in a pine strewn Rocky Mountain valley an hour’s drive from the ski resort town of Hawthorn. Troy invites two of his old college friends to stay with him for a few weeks to take advantage of the great hunting and fishing only to become caught up in a dangerous game of hide and seek as the tables are turned and they become the hunted.

For all of their majestic beauty, The Rocky Mountains are also dangerous as the friends quickly learn. After a series of perilous encounters and narrow escapes, Troy is able to slip away to go for help only to end up in a hospital bed. During his recovery, Troy tells an unbelievable and horrifying story as he seeks help for his friends still trapped on the mountain.

Believing it to be simply another sensational story geared at publicity, the local sheriff dismisses his claims altogether. Troy remains adamant that his friends need help, but as the sheriff’s investigation digs deeper, Troy suddenly finds himself jailed for murder!

Troy’s only hope is that the sheriff can discover the truth before the trial, but the only way to get to the truth is to get back to the mountain. With reluctance, the sheriff begins to think that Troy may be telling the truth as unbelievable as it is. When he and his deputies begin to unravel the threads of the shocking and terrifying mystery a massive snow storm blasts the mountain and stalls the investigation.

Troy sees a glimmer of hope when he is released on bail only to plunge straight back into the most dangerous game he’s ever played. He finds himself, along with an unlikely group of allies, under siege in his isolated cabin on Hawthorn Lake. The beautiful and serene location becomes one of horror and terror as he and the motley ensemble struggle desperately to survive the onslaught and discover the truth behind the murder on the mountain.




A Word from the Author

author-paul-buckner-picture

Growing up in rural Oklahoma, I spent most of my childhood outdoors where I learned to love nature. Horseback riding, Hiking, camping, hunting and fishing was simply a way of life. One of my favorite activities during those long, hot summer days however, was to find a nice shaded spot by the creek, sit down and read a book. I could get literally get lost in the stories for hours on end. I loved to read, and I read anything I could get my hands on. I also loved to hear stories from my parents and other elders. I’m not sure how true some of them were, but they were still thrilling to hear.

Since those days, I have always wanted to write a book with my own stories, my own characters, and set in my own world. Siege at Hawthorn Lake is a work of fiction that took two years to complete, but an incredible learning experience. I have many more that I have planned, but I think the first one is something that will always be special.
