Happy 2020, readers & fellow authors!
TO LOVE A KING is my 20th published book, but the first historical I ever wrote, in 1991, with no internet. How did we do research in the old days? With library books, a trip to Henry VIII's haunts in England, and calling on Tudor experts.
My inspiration was Bertrice Small, in whose romance novel BLAZE WYNDHAM Henry VIII has 2 mistresses.
A Tudorphile since I'm a kid, I'd always wanted to write about him.
TO LOVE A KING has one heroine, the love of Henry's life (no, it's not Anne Boleyn). Its first publisher went out of business in 2005, and Next Chapter just re-published it with a new cover. It's now Book 2 of the Yorkist Saga--Book 1 is CROWNED BY LOVE. A sweet-voiced British narrator is working on the audio versions, and they're free for Kindle Unlimited. Enjoy!
