Click on the covers below (or select titles from the top menu) to find out about my books, most of which are historical novels set in medieval or Tudor England. My latest 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.
I have just completed my sixth novel, Hanging Mary, the first novel I've written that takes place in the United States. It tells the stories of two women caught up in the assassination of President Lincoln: Mary Surratt and her young boarder, Nora Fitzpatrick. I've added it to the pull-down menu, where you can find some excerpts. It will be published in March 2016.
