description: I will be joining Priya Parmar at this Cambridge Literary Festival event on Friday.

PP: I met Philippa Gregory at a New York book signing event in 2004. She spoke wonderfully and read wonderfully and after the event, I told her that I had also studied at the University of Edinburgh. We had a lovely conversation and I told her that I was in the early stages of writing a novel.

PG: I should say here that I have no recollection of this conversation at all.

Elizabeth(The Book Whisperer) I am such a huge fan! I love historical fiction so much, and your books are just perfect!

Kellee Farr I can never express the influence your work has had in my life. I struggled with reading anything above a young adult level (even into my late twenties)until I was given The Other Boleyn Girl. Thank you! I am dyslexic and the effort was never worth the story, until I found your work. I have never been drawn into a story as I was with that novel. You are a master at your craft, thank you for the influence you have had in my life!

What a great surprise to find out I have not purchased everything you have written. I can't wait to finish my collection and get lost in your world.
