Writing in Progress

Conquest cover      The Drowned Court

I am currently working on the final novel in the Conquest series, focussed on the life of Nest ferch Rhys, a Welsh princess who played a significant role in the struggles for power in Wales between the Welsh and the Normans in the 12th century.

I am also working on a biography of the medieval female lord Almodis de La Marche and her sisters, Raingarde and Lucia. I have 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’ life.
