WESTERVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a review for Circle of Time, the newest release by multi award-winning author Debra Shiveley Welch, Readers' Favorite reviewer Lex Allen states, "Five stars are not enough for Debra Shiveley Welch's Circle of Time. An accident in the Bermuda Triangle throws Bridget (Bridge) Littleton through time. She awakens in the home of the Lyttleton family, her own ancestors, in the year 1532 near Bristol, England. Thus begins a fascinating alternative history story of love, mystery, intrigue, life and death in the court of King Henry VIII. Ms. Shiveley Welch deftly interweaves a handful of themes, from the 'butterfly paradox effect' of time travel to the life and loves of Henry, Anne Boleyn and Bridge, to present an addictive read of epic proportions. Not since Outlander by Diana Gabaldon have I read such an intoxicating story that grabbed me from page one and kept me reading almost without a break."
Welch is best known for her novels which take place in the Westerville and Columbus area. When asked about this departure, she replied, "Yes, I prefer to write about Columbus and Westerville. These are the places I know and love, but after writing Spirit Woman, I needed to have some fun. I've always fantasized about going to the court of Henry VIII. So, I decided to do just that."
Welch is now working on Brave Heart Woman, book three of the Cedar Woman Saga, which she assures will take her readers back to her hometown of Westerville.
About the Author
Debra Shiveley Welch was born in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in the South End. She now resides in Westerville, Ohio with her husband Mark, a retired attorney, and son Christopher, also a published author and photographer.
Mrs. Welch has been a student of Tudor history for over 40 years. "I've always enjoyed books on the Tudor era but became irritated with books that distorted Tudor history merely to sensationalize the story. So, I decided to write my own and show how I feel Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn really were. After 48 years of study, I believe that I was successful. I added to the fun by adding the Lyttletons, my own ancestors, also keeping their lives historically correct."
