  1. I love your books and reading your blogs. But, I need to correct one of your blog entries regarding Earliest Universities – you failed to mention Universidad de Salamanca in Spain which was founded in 1134 a little over a decade before University of Paris.

    I can’t wait for your upcoming books!!

  2. Just finished the After Cilmeri series. Could not get my hands on them fast enough, and could not put them down when I got them. Thanks so much. Looking forward to more.

  3. I really enjoyed reading the After Cilmeri series and am wondering if you’re planning on writing any books focusing on Bronwen and life with Ieuan and/or more detail about Anna’s life and finally Llywelyn and Meg and their life as new parents. I don’t want the series to end! In the meantime I’ll have to read your other books I guess. : ) Thanks for writing the books!

    1. The series is far from over! If one of the characters has a smaller role in one book, it doesn’t mean they won’t have a larger role in another 🙂 Glad you’ve enjoyed the books!

      I’m so glad you have enjoyed the books!

  5. I am currently reading the After Cilmeri series, I just started the Prince of Time on my Kindle….I was born and raised in central PA and imagine my surprise when chapter four begins by saying they are driving through the empty streets of State College, AWESOME!!!
    I am a new and super huge fan of yours Sarah Woodbury! Here’s to many more wonderful ideas for future books!!!!

  6. Wonderful! I like to get my favorite books on audio so I can listen while I drive. Love the After Cilmeri series!

    1. I really hope so. Daughter of Time is currently in the works, but I don’t have a date it will be available. Thanks for asking!

  7. Hey,

    I am writing a historical fiction book called Masquerades and Musketeers and need some information on medieval poisoning. I found your article, which provided me with more information than any other source, and I decided some of my characters are going to be poisoned with Belladonna (some live, others do not). Do you have any idea how long it takes before you notice symptoms? I cannot find the answer, and I know it is a weird question, but I figured you have trod this path before me and might have some more information.


    1. I found this from the 1850’s: “From larger quantities, the effects are more quickly induced and more severe. A dose sufficient to bring the system at once decidedly under its influence, generally begins to show its effects in about half an hour. Dryness of the mouth and fauces, a feeling of stricture of the throat, difficult deglutition, thirst, dimness of vision sometimes amounting to blindness, dilated pupil, vertigo or headache, flushed face, suffused eyes, morbid sounds, irregular muscular contractions, and hallucination or delirium, sometimes followed by a disposition to sleep, sometimes attended throughout with wakefulness, are symptoms which most frequently appear, though not all generally in the same case, and which, having continued for twelve hours or more, gradually subside, without leaving any ill consequences behind.”

      Hope that helps!

  8. I started reading your books earlier this week and have not stopped. I am now on the Third book of the Climerie series and only stopped to print a map out of Wales so I can follow along. (I am reading on a Kindle Touch). When I read your books I feel like I am in Wales fighting along side of Dafyd. You really are a wonderful writer. I can’t wait to read more of your books.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so glad you feel that way about the books. And thanks for letting me know.

  9. I just finished Exikles In Time. I loved it ! As I have all of the others in this series. Great entertaining stories. Now I can’t wait for the next one after Cilmetri !!!!!

  10. Sarah,

    Thank you for your wonderful writing! Having downloaded _The Bard’s Daughter_ for free onto my Kindle, I’ve purchased and thoroughly enjoyed _The Good Knight_ and _The Uninvited Guest_ as well. I’ve just left a 5-star review for the prequel and will leave reviews for the others.

    Will there be more in this series?? Pretty please? Did I see potential for a serious romance between Hywel and one of Cristina’s cousins….? Here’s hoping. 🙂

    Ellen M

    1. Thank you so much for commenting and for the reviews! They are SO helpful and I really appreciate it. Yes … Exiles in Time has a March 1 release date and then next up is the 3rd Gareth and Gwen.

  11. Read them all LOVE everyone. I’ve just started reading again after too many years to count and I love the series. I know this sounds crazy but they have helped me so much after a resent loss in my life. Just wanted to say thank you so very much.God gave you a wonderful gift. I also have one question is there going to be anymore books in the Pendragon series?

    1. Hi Mary–I hope to write more books in the Pendragon series. I’m glad you like them! Too many projects, too little time 🙂

  12. I have read all the books of Climeri and just finished book one of Pendragon. Cannot wait to start book two!

    1. I wrote Footsteps in Time first and always meant for it to be read first, but 99% of readers start the series with Daughter of Time and seem to be very happy with reading them in the following order: Daughter of Time/Footsteps in Time/Winds of Time/Prince of Time/Crossroads in Time (and coming 11/1/12, Children of Time). So either way, it’s a win!

  13. I love your After Cilmeri series. Will there be another story after Crossroads in Time? Please let me know.

    1. Yes! Indeed there will be another story. I’m writing it now with a publication date of sometime before Christmas.

  14. I recently finished your ‘After Climeri’ series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your work, and I loved your method of character development. Your writing skills and technique gave the primary characters endearing traits. The story line was engrossing and kept me glued to my Kindle. I have read it several times now and I never get tired of it. I have become most interested in the history of Wales and its people.

    What could have been as expressed in your work is a wonderful idea and your work was a history lesson for me. Five stars for you, girl!

    My husband Gerry just wrote his first novel, and like you, he has a knack of developing characters and expressing tenderness and tender moments so well.

  15. I have just finished reading your After Climari series. Loved each one and hope there will be more soon!

  16. I got a nook for Christmas, found Daughters in Time on Valentines Day, and finished all three by last night. They were amazing! Never read anything from medevil times before…..time travel was the grabber. I thought the series was finished, but comments here say otherwise. What a wonderful surprise! Thank you for opening my interest to new parts of history. Wales!…….who knew? I will write a nook review for all three. You are very talented.

    1. Thank you, thank you! Yes, there is more to the series–a novella about Meg and book 3 in the series–hopefully both will be published by May 1.

  17. I love your After Climari Series I have read all three within the last two weeks! Early summer seems like a long time away! I ma going back to Amazon to leave reviews of your awesome series!

    1. Thank you so much! I am so glad you love my books. Not to give you unrealistic expectations, but it could be sooner 🙂 I will be sure to let everyone know as soon as I have a definitive date.

    1. Hi Erica! Yes! Crossroads in Time is coming, with a publication date of early summer. Thanks for asking! I’m so glad you love the books.

  18. Elizabeth Woodberry 1899 we have her picture in a group of her friends taken on Misery Island of Beverly Ma shore. Her friends were from my wife’s family album, Hardy’s , Preston’s,Whipple’s. email me if you want this picture

  19. Chère Madame,
    Je suis historien de formation (Sorbonne Paris-IV) et je suis tombé para hasard sur un lien parlant de vos livres.
    Je ne vous cache pas que j´ai très envie de les lire, cependant je dois redoubler d´effort en ce moment car j´ai énorment de travail. Dès que cela passera, j´entamerai les séries que vous avez écrites.
    Par ailleurs, j´espère avoir le temps plus tard de pouvoir discuter plus tranquillement avec vous par mail.

  20. Sarah, I have fallen head over heels in love with your After Cilmeri Series and can’t wait for the next. I have written my first novel, have started on a second and have ideas for two more. I’m not sure how to go about finding an agent or publisher, etc. I would appreciate any advice you may have. I purchased my first Sarah woodbury novel from kindle and enjoyed it so much I wanted a hard copy. Not finding one in Chapters (I’m in Canada), I ordered it though Amazon. My daughter already loves the series as much as I do and I hope my friends will too. We travelled through Wales this summer and were spellbound by it’s natural and breathtaking beauty and were thrilled to come across the names of places we visited in youur novels. We really loved all the Welsh names on the signs and took turns trying to pronounce them.
    I hold a degree in English literature and history. My 14-year-old son David is my hero in life as well as in my novel (teen fiction).
    I hope you can offer this budding author some advice on how to get published, etc.
    Your fan, Barbara 😉

    1. I am so glad you love the books!

      Send me an email ( and we can talk! And if you are moved to do so, I’d love it if you left a review wherever you bought my book! Thanks!

  21. Hi. I am currently reading the After Cilmeri series and I am very much enjoying it. I see that another book is planned. I’m glad to see this, but at the risk of being greedy–maybe there could be more than just one more? Just a thought . . . I am looking forward to reading your other books after I finish Prince of Time. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much for your note! So glad you’re enjoying the books. In truth, I didn’t call it the After Cilmeri Trilogy because I was planning more than 3 🙂 We’ll see . . .

    1. Oh . . . it’s coming. I want it to be good, you see 🙂 Thank you so much!

      And if you are moved to do so, I’d love it if you left a review wherever you bought my book! Thanks!
