A big welcome to N.B. Dixon as part of her blog tour with LoveBound Promotions for Heir of Locksley from Beaten Track Publishing.
Character Interview with Lucy the Miller’s Daughter
Author N.B. Dixon interviews Lucy, a peasant girl living in the village owned by Lord Locksley and a close friend to Robin Hood.
N.B.: How long have you known Robin of Locksley?
Lucy: I’ve known of him all my life. He is the only son of Lord Locksley, who owns the Manor my family help to support, but I only met him recently when he came to my defence.
N.B.: He came to your defence?
Lucy: He did. I was being attacked by Sir Guy of Gisborne and his friends. Robin and his servant saw them off, and Robin was hurt in the struggle.
N.B.: That seems unusual behaviour for a noble.
Lucy: Robin isn’t your average nobleman’s son. He cares for his tenants. He deliberately turned a blind eye to my father’s poaching in Sherwood Forest. If that is ever discovered, it will bring the law down on his own head.
N.B.: He must have learned by example.
Lucy: Oh no, his father isn’t like that at all. He’s only interested in taxing us to death and seducing every village maiden he can. He disapproves of Robin’s behaviour.
N.B.: What of the rumour that Robin of Locksley sometimes dresses as a peasant, and is known by the name Robin Hood?
Lucy: It is true he often mixes with the villagers. It was they who gave him the nickname. He once told me that he would prefer to live the life of an honest working man rather than that of a nobleman.
N.B.: Surely if he continues to openly defy his father, there will be trouble.
Lucy: I fear it. I believe Robin would break with his father if he was pushed, but if he does, the people of Locksley will be beside him. He is our hope for the future.

About the Book
Robin of Locksley is a rebel, more comfortable roaming Sherwood Forest with his longbow and courting the village girls than learning how to run a manor.
An innocent flirtation with a peasant girl soon lands Robin in trouble, and worse, he finds himself inexplicably attracted to Will Scathelock, his best friend since childhood. Robin must decide whether to follow the rules of society or his own conscience.
Meanwhile, his neighbour, Guy of Gisborne, is anxious to get his hands on the Locksley estate and he will do anything to make it happen – even murder.
