DARK TIDE OF TALLAND The Black Monk. An awesome, mysterious figure. A traitor and a murderer in the eyes of the law. A man whom the soldiery credited with supernatural powers. A man to be feared by all who supported King James the Second. To the people of Looe and Polperro he was a hero and a protector, a leader the Free Traders would follow willingly, even to death. Faith Ransome, a stranger to the wild Cornish coast and its ancient traditions, put her life in jeopardy when, after witnessing a contraband run, she betrayed him and his friends to the ruthless Major Fairley. In the tragic and frightening events which followed she found herself caught up in the web of intrigue that surrounded the Black Monk and his bitter enemy, forced to choose sides in a plot which threatened to plunge all England into civil war.show more

About Avery Taylor

Avery Taylor was born in Bristol in 1941 to a family of artists, mother a singer, uncle a magician and aunt a writer. However, though she loved singing it was obvious she would never make the grade and so she followed in her Aunt's footsteps. Moving to London in 1960 she won third prize in a serial story competition run by DC Thompson of Dundee and, after her second serial was published she turned to novels, her first book for Robert Hale, Honour in a Shallow Cup, being published in 1965. In 1966 she was interviewed on BBC radio and this led to her being commissioned to write a short story, Remember the Roses, for the Fifth Ghost Book. This was followed a second commission the following year (Death of a Ghost). Both these stories are now incorporated into her new paperback of recent short stories, Twisted Tales. After nine novels for Hale she returned to serial writing for True Magazine until emigrating to Australia in 1982 where she ran a small desktop publishing business, producing biographies and art books. Now retired and living in Queensland she has again taken up the pen, with her latest hardback thriller, Twist of Fate, being published by Robert Hale Ltd in 2012. Her three latest books are now available on Amazon Kindle and are currently available in paperback from Amazon as well as re-publications of earlier novels. The latest being Dark Tide of Talland.show more
