Should she trust him and the mysterious seer who enters her dream world?

Meet the author… N. L. Estrada
Having built a successful career in finance, time seemed to get swallowed up, not allowing her ambitions as a writer to be fulfilled. When she took early retirement at last that time opened up.
‘Maiden Hills’ is the result of that change of focus. A medieval thriller, with elements of fantasy, magic, and action, charts the story of Queen Juliana who learns the secret of the people of Maiden Hills. A town decimated twenty-two years ago by her kingdom of Yorkford. When she learns that she has a link to the town and its survivors, she is torn between protecting her father’s legacy and helping the magical people. Juliana’s thoughtful journey is at the core of N. L.’s debut novel.
The book is being published by 3P Publishing, a British company, and will hit the shelves in August 2020. Having got the taste for writing, N.L. is now working on book two, a follow-up to ‘Maiden Hills’.
When she’s not writing N.L. spends her time reading, gardening, and traveling. You could say her life is consumed by stories and the telling of stories. She’s also a Star Wars fan and sees some parallels with one of the book’s characters in Luke Skywalker. Will ‘Maiden Hills’ go on to replicate the success of the Star Wars universe? Only time will tell.
