I am currently working on a biography, entitled Three Female Lords, which is an account of Almodis de La Marche, who was Countess of Toulouse and, then, Countess of Barcelona, and her sisters, Raingarde de La Marche, Countess of Carcassonne and Lucia de La Marca, Countess of Pallars Sobira. I received an Authors’ Foundation Award from the Society of Authors for work on this forthcoming book. My first novel, Almodis the Peaceweaver, was a fictionalised version of Almodis’s life.
