FEATURED AUTHOR - J. R. Tomlin is the author of fourteen historical novels. She has close ties with Scotland as her father was a native Scot, and she spent time in Scotland while growing up. Her historical novels are set for the most part in Scotland. Her love of that nation is traced from the stories of the Bruce her grandmother read to her when she was small, to hillwalking through the Cairngorms where the granite hills have a gorgeous red glow under the setting sun.
