My second novel, The Traitor's Wife, is a story close to my heart. Like my first book, The Heretic's Daughter, it is based in part on Carrier family legends passed down through 10 generations. In this narrative I've chosen to explore the life of Thomas Carrier, husband to Martha Carrier, who was hanged as a witch in 1692, and how these two remarkable people met and fell in love. According to family lore, Thomas lived to the age of 109, stood seven feet tall, and was one of the executioners of King Charles I of England. I am honored to bring you another chapter of the Carrier family history.
