Click on the books below (or select titles from the top menu) to find out about my books, most of which are historical novels set in fourteenth-century England during the reigns of Edward II and Edward III, in fifteenth-century England during the Wars of the Roses, and in Tudor England. My forthcoming book, The Woodvilles, is a nonfictional account of the family that played a pivotal role in fifteenth-century England. You'll also find pages related to the history behind my books. And there's plenty more for you to look at besides that, so settle in and stay awhile! You can also find me on at my blog, History Refreshed, and on my Facebook page.
