In the post, Higginbotham discusses her latest novel on Margaret d’Anjou, Queen of Henry VI during the Wars of the Roses. According to the author, “Margaret of Anjou, queen of England, cannot give up on her husband-even when he slips into insanity. And as mother to the House of Lancaster’s last hope, she cannot give up on her son-even when England turns against them.”

Travel the Ages has a new interview with author Nell Gavin. Her novel, Threads, is an interesting twist on an old story. Though the story focuses on Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, it places them in a new situation: reincarnated in the 1970′s!
According to the author, “They don’t know they were married 434 years before. They don’t know they parted on bad terms. Anne has no idea why she has a compulsion to punish Henry, a man she’s only just met, and he has no idea why he can’t be near her without falling in love…”
