The Raven Queen Book

Kala speaks with Jules Watson about her book, The Raven Queen. Queen Maeve is one of the most famous and intriguing women in ancient Ireland, branded by history a voracious man-eater and a ruthless war-mongerer. Imagining a different Maeve, The Raven Queen resurrects a free-spirited young woman who would be no man’s plaything, but the ruler of her own destiny. Following that destiny, she unleashes the greatest battle in Irish myth.

She risks the wrath of the supernatural sídhe to steal her father’s sword from his grave by a sacred lake. There Maeve meets the blind druid Ruán, a mysterious exile with a connection to the sídhe she does not understand. She returns to the lake again and again, hoping to gain his hidden power for her own. In the midst of war and chaos, however, comes an unexpected redemption. A part of Maeve she thought long lost is reawakened, and she discovers at last the true nature of the power of women, and the potental she always held within.

More About Jules Watson:
Jules’s parents emigrated from England to Australia, where she was born. She grew up surrounded by beaches, desert, and flies – but dreamed of misty Celtic lands, mountains, snow, and blackberries. Always writing stories, she gained college degrees in archaeology and public relations. She also worked as a cocktail waitress, personal assistant, mine worker, archaeologist, PR consultant, and business writer. Most bizarre job: driving 50-ton tip trucks through a gold mine on the edge of the desert: very hot. Best job (before author): Digging up a Roman army fort in Germany: very cold.

Jules was inspired to write novels by the “Mists of Avalon”, a bestselling book steeped in ancient Celtic spirituality, sword-fighting and of course, romance. Jules waited for someone to write more books with that mix..but no one did, so she wrote her own, based on her background in archaeology. Jules’s latest books are two re-tellings of ancient Irish myths. The first, The Swan Maiden, depicts the romantic tale of Deirdre of the Sorrows. The Raven Queen tells the story of the ruthless warrior Queen Maeve. After much travelling, Jules convinced her husband that she had to move to the misty highlands of Scotland or die. She now lives surrounded by snowy hills, hairy cows, heather – and blackberries.
