What reviewers have to say about The Long Trails series:

(No, there aren’t any yet for A Sea of Green Unfolding!  Be the first!  Just released today!)

The Hills of Gold Unchanging:

“The pace is fast, there’s plenty of action and adventure and a few twists I didn’t see coming. Lizzi Tremayne writes good characters, and that definitely includes the horses. For me, though, it’s the history that’s the star in this story. Good characters plus excellent history equals a great read, which is what this is.”
Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian

“…superb storytelling. As Aleksandra and Xavier faced and survived human malevolence, natural disaster and accidents, and their own doubts and insecurities, I kept turning pages to find out what happened next. I love books in which adversity sculptures character and where challenges to relationships bend them to breakpoint and rebuild them stronger. This is one of those books. I can’t wait to read the sequel.”
Judy Knighton, editor

“There are so many things to like about this story. Lead characters, Aleks and Xavier, are well rounded and strong. Aleks has a stubborn streak and a determination to survive, no matter what. Both inspired me to cheer them on as they faced one problem after another along the way from Utah to California. The plot is well developed, and I particularly liked the attention to historical detail along the way. This is an author who does her homework, and it shows. I was intrigued by this story, and wish I’d read the first in the series before venturing onto this one. Despite that, this story does stand alone well, and is a cracking good yarn.”
Shelagh Merlin, NetGalley Reviewer

A Long Trail Rolling:

“vivid, light and fast-paced…it will appeal in particular to anyone interested in American…history, and in general to those looking for a ripping good read. I’m looking forward to reading The Hills of Gold Unchanging, the next volume in the Aleksandra and Xavier saga”
Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian

“The mystery, adventure, and danger of life in Utah in the 1860s is beautifully described…an authentic, emotional story of one woman’s fight for survival in an unforgiving landscape. I couldn’t put Lizzi Tremayne’s book down.”
   –Leeanna Morgan, USA Today bestselling author

“An impressive debut from a New Zealand (ex-American) author…a romance, a western, and an adventure story, all rolled up into a compelling read…I devoured this one and am hungry for more.”
   –Booksellers NZ

Teachers…Which special ones do you remember?

Hi all,

A recent FB post made me sit down and write a little about some of the teachers in High School who made a huge difference to my life…

Pescadero High School, Pescadero, CA…  a huge place, with all of a hundred students from 9-12 grade. Some of us came from nearly Woodside, some 45 minutes to an hour on the bus, especially those as far away as the Bergmans on Skyline Boulevard. 🙂

Here’s what I remember about my HS teachers…

🙂 Patty O, you did so much for me. Western Civ, Yearbook, Newspaper, English… you’ll be pleased to know I’ve just published my first novel, A Long Trail Rolling, a western historical romantic adventure fiction… and the second and third are half done…I’m sure you’re watching me from above with your yardstick… best get it right… Tony Magagnini, always will love you to bits! You made Civics bearable, and were brave enough to teach us all to drive, AND took us up to San Fran for the last drive with us… Amazing. Thanks for coming for dinner with us all when we were over visiting from NZ, Miss Light, I’ve done lots of bio AND cooking! Mrs. Morgan.. your Espanol held me in good stead in University, until met a professor from ARGENTINA… the only class I ever QUIT… Mr. Raney, sorry I didn’t realise until way too late just what a spectacularly gifted man you were… and having taught guitar at primary schools when my sons were taking it, I now understand just what you did with the brats from three primary and one high school… you were amazing. I’m sure you’re watching from up there, with your balding pate shining in the sun of the gods as you smiled your way through yet another rendition of the Chambarita tune… you were amazing. Mrs. Curry, you taught us maths… You’d be pleased to know I ended up doing heaps of maths (uni calc) and sciences on my way to vet school, and through it….Oh yeah, and now I’m teaching high school… mostly sciences and maths… in NZ. Thanks for the great role models. XXX

SO, guys and gals, which high school teachers do you remember made the biggest impact upon your life?   Would love to hear!
