I don't know if it was the author himself or the editing but someone needs to look over the e-text again at least. Because like I said, it's a decent novel about Catherine de Medici otherwise.

After studying for and gaining a diploma in historical writing I wrote my first novel — The Serpent of the Valois which was self-published in The idea is to learn and write more about some of the fascinating characters that have lived and loved, and who have a story to be told.

I used to read very little fiction, preferring historical non-fiction. At some point I must have thought it was a good idea, and I had a great English teacher at school, who was often complimentary on my work, so I guess the inspiration came from her! Is there an Author that you consider your inspiration?

What type of book do you like to read and does this differ from the genre that you prefer to write? I stick with historical, predominantly non-fiction. The beauty of writing about historical characters is that there are many periods to choose from. I tend to read any period from 6th Century to the Victorians; the extremes in history are fascinating to me! Having said that, I love E.
King Charles the Ninth of France. He is a main character in both my novels and I empathise with him a great deal. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. If you could pick an Author to write your biography, who would it be? Out of Darkness a film starring Diana Ross as a paranoid schizophrenic. And finally, you have one quote to be remembered by, what is it?
