Author has written 2 stories for Merlin.

Greetings from the Heartland of the USA!

Like you, I am an avid fan of the TV series Merlin, and love the interaction and on-screen chemistry between Arthur and his faithful secret sorcerer. Colin and Bradley do an amazing job, as do all of the cast.

I am a private person so am not comfortably telling much about myself other than I am a mom of two who loves to write. That is why I chose my pen name on here as a variation on the famous classic play and novel (and later movies) by Baroness Emma Orczy called, The Scarlet Pimpernel. For those who don't know, it's an adventure-romance set during the French Revolution about an aristocrat who disguises himself as the heroic and daring Scarlet Pimpernel.

Here is the poem the aristocrat composes to amuse some guests—who, of course, have no idea that HE is The Scarlet Pimpernel:

"We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven? — Is he in hell?
That damned, elusive Pimpernel"

Well, I'm not particularly heroic or daring, nor am I a male aristocrat, lol! And hopefully I've not offended anyone French reading this.

But I did make a pun on the character's name by incorporating my own first name into my alias on here. (scarlet PAMpernel. get it? :-D)

BTW, there is en actual flower which exists called the scarlet pimpernel.

Anyway,THANX SO MUCH for reading "Odin's Revenge - The Abduction of Arthur" and/or "Blood Moon Rising."

The Heart Spoke of No Sin by zendog reviews
Peace reigns in Camelot; Arthur is King and all is well, if a trifle boring. But evil awaits and Merlin falls victim to it. Love and loss; joy and fear - the servant and the King are trapped and Camelot will fall as they are tortured to betray each other. Can friendship and destiny win under the shadow of possession and hate? Merlin and Arthur Whump. BAMF Merlin.

Purchase from Sorrow by zendog reviews
Even as an evil possession takes over Merlin and an old enemy seeks to destroy all that he and Arthur hold dear; an ancient threat arises, intent on taking Merlin and all his power for themselves. Diabolical and twisted forces are pulling their existence apart and old nightmares return to haunt them both. Whump and some BAMF. Sequel to "Rent Asunder"; best if you read that first.

Odin's Revenge - The Abduction Of Arthur reviews
A badly wounded Merlin is helpless to prevent Arthur's abduction by a ruthless enemy from the young king's past bent on the ultimate revenge. Takes place early seas. 4 after Uther's death. WARNINGS! no M/A slash but RATED M for a suggested m/m scene (not explicit) and other adult content; language; violence/Arthur whumping, temp. char. deaths (but all ends well for our heroes)
