New 'Gypsy Thief' brings romance and magic to Portsmouth

Set in modern-day Portsmouth, "The Gypsy Thief" is the new young adult novel by former Portsmouth resident Kellie Bellamy Tayer.
"The Gypsy Thief" is the first book in The Talisman Trilogy. Says the publisher, "It is the romantic and suspenseful story of high school student Laura Calder and her love for two boys: Andrew Easton, a prince from the British royal family, and Miguel Dos Santos, a gypsy from Portugal, who holds royal secrets of his own.
"When Laura finds a magical disk on the ground outside of Portsmouth High School, she is unwittingly drawn into a web of deceit and revenge which will ultimately lead her to make a heart-breaking, life-changing decision. The story will continue in Book Two, "The Dark Prince" and conclude in Book Three, "The Shadow King."
Ms. Tayer now lives lives in Shaker Heights, Ohio. "The Gypsy Thief" is published by Amazon's publishing house, CreateSpace. "The Gypsy Thief" is available in paperback at Amazon and will soon be available on electronic reading devices and as an audio book.
