New York real estate broker Miriam Lewis takes off for a brief getaway to a remote inn on the rugged cliffs of Cornwall. Rest and romance with her boyfriend seem like the perfect cure for a life that appears to be going nowhere, and too fast.
Entering Cornwall, Miriam crosses the River Tamar and glimpses a luminous girl floating in the river. A memory from long, long ago begins to unfold in Miriam’s thoughts—something about a promise she made to perform a selfless act of courage. Could it be true? Could she ever rise to such heroism or is it just a hallucination?
While at the inn, Miriam experiences a series of flashbacks from a life she lived in an ancient land called Ruberah. These startling images convince Miriam that she did write the promise and that she must keep it. But to do so, Miriam will have to let go of everything in her life and place her trust in a guide—the river girl—the wise and eternal spirit of the River Tamar.

Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
Reinventing a character from an old Cornish legend that fascinated me as a child: the beautiful nymph Tamara lives in a cave beneath the moors with her parents. Her father forbids her to meet the giant brothers Tavy and Tawridge. Tamara disobeys him. Her father catches her with the giants and as punishment turns her into a river of tears. In “Written in Ruberah,” the first book in my series about the “Age of Jeweled Intelligence,” Tamara lives as the Spirit of the River Tamar.
Where did you get your idea for this story?
As a child, I travelled back and forth to boarding by school by train crossing the River Tamar. I always wondered about Tamara’s life as a river. I wanted her to be happy, so I imagined her as a water spirit who helps people.
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
If you dream of being a writer, you can be a writer. The dream is telling you this. Let nothing stop you. Build the habit of writing every day. This tells your body, mind, and spirit you’re serious about this. After a while that something magical happens and you’ll find your imagination racing off, exploring possibilities you might otherwise never have considered.
Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
Anything else that you would like to add?
If you feel called to write, honor the calling. You have something wonderful to uncover and share with the world.
I write by Rumi’s quote:
“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
