When love is tangled up in magic, how can you be sure what's real?
Ruth Warburton grew up on the south coast of England in Lewes; a small town with a long history. After leaving Lewes she studied English at the University of Manchester, and there developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts. While researching A WITCH IN WINTER she found herself returning to them, in particular BEOWULF and LE MORTE D'ARTHUR, and seeds from these mixed with ancient Mesopotamian demons, Voodoo spells, Tudor superstitions and 15th century witch-hunting guides, to create the Winter Trilogy.Ruth is now a publicist for adult fiction at Random House and lives in North London.
"A Witch in Winter is totally one to look out for. Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. With well researched facts, romance and some fantastic action scenes, A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!" - Jade, at Ink Scratchers - Jade at Ink Scratchers"Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability..." - Cait from The Cait Files - Cait from The Cait Files"One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads..." - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries - Brodie of Eleusinian MysteriesIt's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting. - The BooksellerA great deal to like here. - BookbagThis is a very enjoyable read, and an impressive debut novel. **** - Books For KeepsA fantastic start to what promises to be an awesome series. - Jess Hearts BooksThis spellbinding read poses some interesting questions about love, life and ethics. - Kiss
