About Journeys: the Archers of Saint Sebastian by Jeanne Roland
15-year-old Marieke disguises herself as a boy at the all-male archers’ guild of St. Sebastian to escape her father’s killers. Soon she’s vowing to help the most handsome Journeyman archer in the place win the annual guild competitions, without ever letting him find out she’s a girl – a girl, who loves him. Robin Hood meets Mulan and Princess Bride in this frothy but literate romp through medieval Belgium that’s packed with slow-burn romance, humor, gorgeous boy shenanigans, and longbow archery competitions.

Roland hails from Davis, California, where she spent most of her youth lounging at the pool, soaking up the sun, and daydreaming. She had a key ring that read 'I’m running away to join the circus,' and her favorite moment of the day was when the local movie theater went dark, and the slogan 'escape to the movies' appeared on the screen. As an adult, her passions include all things melodramatic and beautiful — everything from classic movies, British romantic poetry, ancient tragedy and epic, to Italian opera. She is now a professor of Classics in a small midwestern town, where she lives with her Greek husband, her fraternal twins, and a Bernese mountain dog named Franco Corelli.
