Does the Lochness Monster Exist?

Find out the true story of the Loch Ness monster in Alinda of the Loch.

Exerpts from Alinda of the Loch: Chapter 11-Contemplation

   Alinda slowly grew tired of the life of a modern day princess. The constant traveling and interviews, the parties, the press attention (although at first attractive and novel), grew wearisome. When Pisces excitedly announced the tour was going global, Alinda knew she could not sustain the pace it would require. She craved the peace and solitude she had experienced in her turret of Urquhart Castle.
   Alinda said, 'Pisces, I am very happy that you have been offered this opportunity, but after the European tour finishes in Glasgow this summer, I won't be coming with you.'

 To find out more on the life of Alinda go to and please buy your copy of Alinda of the Loch.
