About the author (2010)

Mariam Naji Salas is the granddaughter of Stanley A. Stratford and A Bard in King Arthur's Court is their first collaboration. Stanly A. Stratford is president of the Kentucky School of Metaphysics, a lawyer and has been a student of the Western Tradition for over thirty years.

Mariam Naji Salas was born in Cincinnati, OH, but was educated in Dubai where she received an M>D> degree in 2006. She delved into writing to offset the stress of medical studies. Her love for the Arthurian legends began in childhood and when her grandfather related the history behind the legends, her fascination grew. She welcomed the chance to rewrite the Bardic Tales in their true historical setting, adding her own threads to the rich tapestry of the Arthurian Legends.
