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.

My sixth novel, Hanging Mary, is 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. It will be published on March 15, 2016. Need a large-print version, or prefer an audio book? Hanging Mary will be available in these formats as well! Johanna Parker will narrate the audio book.



Hanging Mary has also been chosen as an Okra Pick for Winter 2016 by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. Ask for it at your favorite independent bookseller!



Also coming in 2016: Margaret Pole: The Countess in the Tower, a biography of Henry VIII's most tragic victim. Look for it in August!
