Video Interview with Multi-talented Author Thomas Ryerson

13 May

One very exciting and extremely rewarding part of being a writer is getting to speak with others who are following the same road as I. Last week I sat down with Canadian author, Thomas Ryerson, for a conversation about writing and some of the ups and downs writers experience. Tom talks about his education in film making, his great grandfather who survived the Titanic and whose life forms the nucleus of one of Tom’s books, and of every author’s nightmare–finding new information after the book is published.

This is Part 1 of the interview. Part 2 will be aired next week. Enjoy!

Thomas Ryerson’s books are available on Amazon here. Come visit next Wednesday for the conclusion of our writers’ chat.

The Loyalist’s Luck_cover_apr1.indd
John and Lucy escape the Revolutionary War to the unsettled British territory across the Niagara River with almost nothing. In the untamed wilderness they must fight to survive, he, off on a secret mission for Colonel Butler and she, left behind with their young son and pregnant once again. In the camp full of distrust, hunger, and poverty, word has seeped out that John has gone over to the American side and only two people will associate with Lucy–her friend, Nellie, who delights in telling her all the current gossip, and Sergeant Crawford, who refuses to set the record straight and clear John’s name. To make matters worse, the sergeant has made improper advances toward Lucy. With John’s reputation besmirched, she must walk a thin line depending as she does on the British army, and Sergeant Crawford, for her family’s very survival.

When American colonists resort to war against Britain and her colonial attitudes, a young couple caught in the crossfire must find a way to survive. Pioneers in the wilds of New York State, John and Lucy face a bitter separation and the fear of losing everything, even their lives, when he joins Butler’s Rangers to fight for the King and leaves her to care for their isolated farm. As the war in the Americas ramps up, ruffians roam the colonies looking to snap up Loyalist land. Alone, pregnant, and fearing John is dead, Lucy must fight with every weapon she has.

With vivid scenes of desperation, heroism, and personal angst, Elaine Cougler takes us back to the beginnings of one great country and the planting of Loyalist seeds for another. The Loyalist’s Wife transcends the fighting between nations to show us the individual cost of such battles.

      Those straight chairs were up north in a cottage so facilities were SO limited, Ruth. Great to hear from you!
