Proofs for my new historical novel, Conquest: Daughter of the Last King, arrived today. Very exciting. The book will be published by Impress Books in September and is the first in a trilogy, telling the story of the 12th century Welsh princess, Nest ferch Rhys, and the struggles between the Welsh and the Normans.
