When I was nine or ten years old, I watched the “Six Wives of Henry VIII” starring Keith Michell as Henry VIII–and was forever hooked on the Tudors, the Stuarts and anything that had to do with the 15th and 16th Centuries in the UK.
Fast forward to 2011–my love for history and a good non-fiction or fiction book or movie is unabated. I read an overwhelming amount on the topic and this blog is my first attempt to share my views on what books/shows are well-written, interesting and helpful and what I find less, well, less factual! Because the one way to provoke my ire is to play fast and loose with known historical fact.
Not surprisingly, all this interest in history and historical fiction has led to my first attempt at an historical fiction novel of my own.
