Since characters in Dublin who appear in my novel trilogy, Conquest, play the Viking boardgame, hnefatafl, I was excited to see a 9th century set of glass pieces from the game in a fabulous exhibition of medieval glass at the Cluny Museum in Paris this week.
I am giving illustrated talks on the Conquest novels
at Downham Market Library on 27 Nov.
My new historical novel, The Drowned Court, is published tomorrow by Impress Books. It covers the years 1107-1121 and focusses on the tumultuous lives of the Welsh princess, Nest ferch Rhys, and the Norman king, Henry I.
I am giving a number of library talks in November in Norfolk and Pembrokeshire to celebrate the new book:
Mon 13 Nov 11am Pembroke Dock Library. Free event.
Mon 27 Nov 2pm Downham Market Library, Priory Road, Downham Market, PE38 9JS. Illustrated talk, £3 including refreshments. Booking essential on 01366 383073.
My guest blogpost on writing the book is published on The Writing Desk.
