About us…

           We, Charles Randolph Bruce and Carolyn Hale Bruce, were successful award-winning designers, illustrators, copywriters, researchers, and art and creative directors in the field of advertising, before we switched careers and became self published novelists. All this work led to our being invited to participate in a panel discussion entitled, "Successful Self-publishing" at the 2008 Virginia Festival of the Book, later broadcast on C-Span2's Book TV.

A FEW OF THE CHARACTERS FROM
REBEL KING - HAMMER OF THE SCOTS

Isabel McDuff

The young Countess of Buchan, Isabel McDuff, stole her husband's best war-horses and joined King Robert's struggle to free Scotland. She was treated most inhumanely by the English King, Edward I.

Sir Christopher Seton was married to King Robert's sister, Christian. He was one of Robert's closest lieutenants and paid dearly for his fight for Scotland's freedom.

King Edward I of England was known as "Longshanks" in the movie, Braveheart. He sent three armies north to kill Robert and from his sick bed personally prosecuted the war against the small Scottish army.

Sir Angus Og Macdonald, Lord of the Isles, trades in everything from foods and wares to mercenaries and slaves, and as far away as the Mediterranean. His fleet of galleys makes the core for King Robert's navy.
Sir Aymer de Valence, Earl of Pembroke, is paid 1,000 pounds by Edward I to take his army north to kill the newly crowned King of Scots, Robert the Bruce. The Scots are quick to discover that the earl is far from the chivalrous noble they had thought him to be. See Lord Macdouall below for excerpt link.

Lady Christina of Carrick, kinswoman and past lover of Robert's, comes back into his life to help him fight the English invaders. Courageous and clever she becomes a real asset to the war effort.

Lord Dungal Macdouall was a Scot yet fought violently against King Robert, who captured and released him three times hoping he would join the side of the Scots.
