An enthralling story, sympathetic characters and a visit to another time, another culture.  What more can you ask of an author? -- Medieval Mysteries (
Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales... 
The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives--Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard--with bringing the killer to justice. 

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

The Good Knight is the first of the Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mysteries.  Other books in the series include a prequel novella, The Bard's Daughter and four novels: The Uninvited Guest, The Fourth Horseman, The Fallen Princess, and The Unlikely Spy.

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. Her interest in Wales stems from her own ancestry and the year she lived in England when she fell in love with the country, language, and people. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names. She makes her home in Oregon.
