After Whorl: Bran Reborn by Nancy Jardine @nansjar @rararesources #BlogTour #QandA #Giveaway


AD 71 Northern Roman Britain
Ravaged at the Battle of Whorl, Brennus of Garrigill is irrevocably changed. He embraces a new identity as Bran, vowing to avert Roman domination of Brigantia. Though how, when he and Ineda – his healer’s granddaughter – are forced to labour for the Roman IX Legion? Trading with the usurpers provides opportunities for gathering information, but after they are attacked by a Roman patrol, Ineda cannot be found.

Distraught with her loss, can Bran find a new occupation?

The adventures of the Garrigill Clan continue…


with Nancy Jardine…

Thank you for taking part in the Q&A, so let’s get started…

Which three words best describe your personality?




Which three vacation spots are your favourite?




Which three things do you enjoy doing when you aren’t writing?

gardening (sometimes)

catching up with politics

reading for pleasure

Which three books would you want if you were stuck on a desert island?

Lord of the Rings trilogy Compendium (Tolkien)

War and Peace (Tolstoy)

Jane Austen Compendium

Which three books were your favourite as a child?

The Mountain of Adventure (actually anything by Enid Blyton)

The Chalet School Girls (E.M. Brent-Dyer)

Myths of Ancient Greece (Robert Graves)

Which three characters from any book would you have around for dinner?

General Gnaeus Iulius Agricola (Agricola’s Bane #4 Celtic Fervour Series)

Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, aka Colin Firth)

Aragorn (Lord of the Rings by Tolkien aka Viggo Mortensen)

Which three things most inspired this book?

A reviewer of #1 The Beltane Choice asked when a sequel was coming out and I hadn’t originally considered writing a series.

My character Brennus was so lovely in #1 The Beltane Choice but he got a raw deal from me and needed his own story told.

The campaigns of the Ancient Romans in Northern Britannia are a fascinating time period.

Which three emotions do you think your readers will experience while reading your book?




Last question I promise 😉

Which three words would you use to describe your book?




Thank you again!

  1. Thank you for the fun questions today, Rae. I’ll need to scurry off to the shops soon to get the stuff to have that wonderful dinner with all 3 nominated characters…. And sitting right next to me would be?
    – Well, I’d have to have Agricola opposite because I know exactly what the other two look like! 🙂
