"Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for."
And, here's A.C.!
TCR: What was the hardest part about writing your book? What was the easiest?
ACG: The hardest part about writing SCARLET was the history. SCARLET is a retelling of the Robin Hood legend, and Scarlet’s story was actually there immediately; her character reimagines Will Scarlet as a girl that is a skilled thief but a total loner, and her whole narrative was just in my mind and it was like word-vomiting until I finished writing it--her voice even includes some deliberate bastardizations of English grammar, and I found myself thinking in that grammar for a while, which was a little disconcerting. I couldn’t help it, and the story practically tore out of me. It was by far the fastest novel I’ve ever written, and there was something insane and wonderfully easy about that kind of all consuming passion.
