Call of The Buffalo


Black Hawk is the chief of the Black Sand reservation of Sioux. They are a tribe deeply spiritual in their beliefs and dedication to their ancestors. Sarah Lacey is a travel writer who has managed to secure a six month agreement to stay and work with them. She has no idea how much the people and culture will affect her personally. There is immediate tension between Sarah and Black Hawk. His aloofness infuriates her, whilst she stirs up memories he does not want to remember. But the Buffalo has spoken and will not be denied. Sarah decides to ignore Black Hawk, she has much more than his arrogance to worry about; like trying to be accepted into the tribe and being taken seriously and trusted by those around her. Before Sarah realises it, and to Black Hawks dismay, the guiding spirits lead the Holy Man into sealing Sarah’s fate with the tribe. Sarah’s decisions have a profound affect on her family who are soon drawn into a web that could spell disaster for the future of the reservation. This story will take you through a visual waterfall of seasons through garrison towns, prairie and tipis. You will discover how birch bark canoes were made, the process of naming, of herbal medicine and spirituality. Feel the freedom of riding bareback in wild flowers, the quiet cold of winter and the warm community and laughter of a people joined together in one mind. But beware; there are those that do not relish the life they have been born into.

Tamsin's War told through the eyes of a naval medical officer takes the reader on a vivid journey with Medical Evacuation teams deployed in Afghanistan, highlighting the highs and lows of those fighting the Taliban, those fighting to keep the injured alive, the helicopter crews tasked to extract the injured and the Medical Personnel who fix those lives shattered by this conflict.
An amazing book which catapults you in the center of their universe, giving a unique insight which allows the reader an opportunity to understand the chaos this conflict has caused through the extraordinary attention to detail which will captivate you from the first page to the last.

Tamsin's War is a remarkable and moving account of life as a nurse serving in the armed forces.
We follow her from Selly Oak in Birmingham to Camp Bastion field hospital in Afghanistan, experiencing with her intimately, the roller coaster of life and death, success and failure that confront her as a member of the Medical Evacuation team during the conflict.
This wonderful book places the reader at Tamsin's side throughout the whole story, vividly experiencing every sight, sound and emotion with her.

I was born and raised in Plymouth before moving to Berkshire where I pursued a career as an analyst.

Reading was always a major part of my life, but writing did not enter equation until 2007 when I wanted to find a form of escapism, writing about things I had a passion and interest for. As a result, my genres are never same!

That escapism became a passion and the passion led me to a writing course with Oxford University in 2010.

My first novel, Tamsin’s War was published in 2012, a bi product of the course.

My second novel, Call of The Buffalo, took 5 years to research and another 2 years to write.
