Read full description of the books Beloved Exile:The sequel to "Firelord." Guinevere tells her story after the Fall of Camelot. This woman is a queen, whose family line goes back centuries. Now nominally a Christian, the women of her family were once priestesses of Epona, with all the sexual priveleges that entailed. Daughter of a formidable king, it was she who taught young Arthur how to rule a kingdom.
Her story begins with the political challenges arising with the Arthur's death, and continues with betrayal, flight, and then capture and enslavement by the very Saxons Arthur fought so hard against.
No matter what her circumstances, Guinevere is a formidable woman. She has serious flaws, but over time she grows in wisdom and compassion, and finally returns to the land where she once ruled to take a final hand in the future of Britian.

His other well-known works include Waiting For The Galactic Bus (1988) and its sequel The Snake Oil Wars (1989), humorous critiques of American pop culture and religion.
