Kathleen Rowland



It’s a pleasure to welcome Kathleen to the blog today to chat about her book, A Brand New Address, her first novel in the Intervenus series.


Kathleen Rowland

At sixty-eight the clock is ticking, and Kathleen Mary Elizabeth Pugh Rowland lives in the present. She cherishes any kind of time with her husband whether it’s moonlight sailing or walking the dogs. Did she mention Gerry is witty, intelligent, warm, and understanding? As the song goes, she’s lucky to be in love with her best friend. Of course as empty-nesters, they welcome the rowdy “fabulous five” and their terrific people any time.

As long as she can remember, storytelling has been a release. Writing fiction has given her a chance to escape into worlds she’s created. Kathleen writes romantic suspense under her own name Kathleen Rowland. So that readers don’t become confused, she decided to write a new adult series under the pen name, Rudyard Rowland.  Rud is a younger version and doesn’t like her name either. That’s right. With the last name Pugh, her nicknames were Pughie, Pughtrid, and Pugh-bird. “Hello Stinky!” In the U.K. someone made a list of the most embarrassing last names, and at the top was Shatwell.  Some things end up being fortunate.  She never makes fun of anyone, and some situations (like introductions) make us brave.  That’s Kathleen, she’s brave. She’s done many courageous things. She’s moved to new places, brought up five children, started new careers, and created wish lists.  If you’d like to use her method, break a wish down to achievable targets with a deadline. Dreams do come true.

I’m so excited to announce that Relics will soon be released by Ellysian Press. To celebrate, the series formerly known as The Thulukan Chronicles is getting a new name and a new look! Relics, Book 1 of Modern Magics will be released in the near future, with the rest of the series to soon follow.

But first here’s my new cover by the fabulous M Joseph Murphy. Be sure to check out his work at his website. He’s done a great job with this series! I can’t wait to share the rest with you…very soon!


relics - ebook cover high resolution



Most of Thulu and La Fi’s clients are dead. Which is perfect since their detective agency caters to the supernatural. But a simple job to find a lost locket turns into a big case finding relics for an ancient daemon.

The daemon needs the relics to keep a dangerous portal closed. His enemy, Gabriel, wants the relics to open the portal and give his people access to a new feeding ground – Earth.

Other portals begin to open and the creatures of magic return to Earth, proving many other worlds exist.

When Gabriel threatens their family, Thulu and La Fi’s search becomes personal. The couple will need powerful help in the race to find the relics before Gabriel does. But maybe that’s what ghostly friends, magical allies and daemonic clients are for.

When the creatures of myth and magic return to Earth, they’re nothing like your mother’s fairy tales.


You’ll be able to buy Relics at all the usual retailers.

Moth Book Tour & Giveaway






Social worker Max Hollingsworth is no stranger to monsters. Supernatural or human, he’s faced all kinds. But when he’s called upon to investigate a missing child, he may have met his match.

Children are vanishing, not just from the streets, but from their parents’ memories. Max’s investigation leads him to a gang of neo-Nazi vampires running a child slavery ring. There, he comes face to face with the deadliest enemy he’s ever met, their charismatic and powerful leader Boone.

Running low on hope and options to find the missing children, Max turns to his friends for help. But even they aren’t enough. Forced to face the darkness of his own past, Max forges an alliance with the least likely ally of all. An enemy whose cruelty was almost his end, and haunts him still.

Rated 18+ for language, violence and sexual content.
