Dancing at D’Avencourt

The NEW novel by Iris Lloyd

My ninth novel is shortly to be published by New Era Publishing and will be available in paperback and as an e-book in the late summer of 2021.                       

The year is 1491. Ingaret is only six years old when she first meets Robert. Four years her senior, he is the youngest son of Lord and Lady D’Avencourt, on whose manor her family live as serfs.

The BRON Novels

A saga in five parts about Bron, born and brought up in the pagan settlement of Byden towards the end of the Roman occupation. The novels were inspired by archaeological excavations taking place at Beedon, north of Newbury, on top of the Berkshire downs, and some of the finds have been worked into the story.

Other novels by Iris Lloyd

Having finished the story of Bron (but leaving her with grandchildren so that I could pick her up again some time in the future if I wished), I felt bereft. However, I am not left without inspiration for long, and found myself in a picturesque little village where I had gone for a meeting, having been led there by my trusty satnav, Sabrina. On the journey home, I thought “What if Sabrina had a mind of her own...?” And so Flash Black was born!
