About the Author

USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR Eileen Enwright Hodgetts is a much traveled writer. Brought up in England and Wales, she has also lived and worked in South Africa and Uganda and now makes her home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her life experiences allow her to use exotic backgrounds for her novels and to understand how an adventure can begin with just one small incident. For ten years she directed a humanitarian mission in East Africa and is also involved in a Ugandan Coffee Farm. Much of her writing reveals not only her great fondness for the British Isles, but also her British sense of humor which still sees the funny side of most situations.

Her screen play of the US senate investigations into the sinking of the TITANIC is currently being made into a major movie. (The working title is UNSINKABLE for those who want to follow it on IMDb).

In addition to writing novels, Eileen Enwright Hodgetts is also an accomplished playwright with a number of national awards to her credit. Her novel, WHIRLPOOL, began life as a stage musical about a free-spirited woman and her desire to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The musical played at the Niagara Falls Convention Center in Niagara Falls, New York. In 1993 the Mayor of Niagara Falls, NY, proclaimed the summer of 1993 as Whirlpool Theater Days in honor of the production.

AFRIC is a realistic novel based on the author's personal experiences and observations from 36 visits to Uganda over the past 12 years. The story is a drama ripped from today's headlines with an appealing heroine, and a cast of colorful but realistic characters. It is also an eye-opening look at the realities of life and death in modern Africa and the role that the USA plays behind the scenes in African politics. 

The discovery of King Arthur's sword Excalibur is the starting point of EXCALIBUR RISING, a new historical fiction series. Books One, Two, Three and Four are available currently and are ranking in the very top section of the Historical Fiction genre. More on the way? Most probably!

Currently she is writing a three book WWII mystery series rich with her memories of the post-war years in England.

When she is not writing novels or movie scripts or staging theater plays, she is exploring the art of cheese making. Find her blog at eileenenwrighthodgetts.com

Enjoyed reading but can't find the second on nook

When historian, Marcus Ryan, is sent by his boss, Michael Mandretti, to find the legendary Excalibur sword, he thinks he's off on a wild goose chase. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table weren't real. Or were they? Excalibur Rising is a fantasy book that has mystery, adventure, and intriguing characters. The blending of the Arthurian legend and the modern day world is well-done. The characters are entertaining and well-fleshed out. This is a good start for the series, and readers will certainly be interested to find out what happens in the next book. Recommended for those who enjoy fantasy books, especially those who like the legend of King Arthur.

This book is a great new twist on a favorite legend. So clever. I loved it. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

What really became of Arthur, the King who was; who came from nowhere then went away? The tale is well told here, with an explanation that will satisfy the hearts of old romantic, and those who have the souls of old romantic. Four and a half stars should have been five but for the editing. A good, quick 2-4 hour read will satisfy your curiosity - you'll get no spoiler hints from me.
