Excerpt

Servent de peu de chose en ce malheur extréme,
Et qui peut esperer de s'en voir soulagé,
A merité le mal dont il est affligé,

ALCIONNE.

He quoy ma chere soeur, avez vous quelque affaire,
Ou quelque déplaisir que vous me deviez taire;

ELISE.

Ce jeune Cavalier, ce vaillant estranger,
Qui secouant mon Pere en un mortel danger,
Dans ce fameux combat où d'un Prince rebelle,
Rhodes contre Pisandre entreprit la querelle,
Alcandre, Ha! ce beau nom est tout ce qui de luy,
Peut-estre resteroit sur la terre aujourd'huy,
S'il [ne] vivoit encore en l'amoureuse idée,
Que pour ce cher amant ma memoire a gardée,

ALCIONNE.

Et quoy le brave Alcandre?...

ELISE.

Est le Prince charmant,
Que mesme apres sa mort j'ayme si tendrement,
Peut-estre blasmez vous ma foible resistance;
Mais si jamais l'amour

Author of the Day

Jeff Gunhus
In an effort to get his very reluctant 11-year old son to get interested in reading Jeff Gunhus wrote his first book, Jack Templar Monster Hunter. Since then, Gunhus has become a bestselling author of thriller and horror novels for adults and the middle grade/YA series, The Templar Chronicles. As our Author of the Day, Gunhus talks about his novel, Killer Pursuit, shares how he juggles writing with being a father of five and reveals why he creates quiet moments in his books.
