I had an Idea for a book about Elizabeth 1 and why she stayed the virgin Queen,The fact that she had all her flirtatious episodes that are well documented. Little is known about the hot steamy love affair that she was having with Kitty one of her ladies in waiting. which went on for year under the eyes of her royal court that were blind to this secret affair.It only came to light by a coded letter found among some private documents of Kitty the lady and lover of Elizabeth the first.How do you think this would turn out if it was written well. Is there room for a story here.

So many have asked of your future plans, (or suggested topics) I don't see how you can keep up. But I can't help wondering if--considering your interest in both the Plantagenets and stron female p[rotagonists--if you have ever considered Eleanor of Aquitaine?

Nancy Godwin:
Aug 27, 2012 05:27AM
While I understand that you are writing historical 'fiction", as a serious student of history, I squirmed about the plot additions concerning the secret romance between Arthur and Catherine in The Constant Princess. Does it ever make you uncomfortable to so deliberately mislead people whose only exposure to history is from your books? PS I am a big fan, and loved both The Other Boleyn Girl and The Queen's Fool.
Virginia Johnston-Dodds:

Lubna Amro:
Aug 27, 2012 02:19PM
Q well in general im a big fan of the Tudor court series and the Cousin's War series , But , the stance you took in The Other Boleyn Girl was different from the norm , i mean personally i like the idea of Anne Boleyn being the villain and being responsible of a large number of the things she was blamed of , but I really want to know how you thought of it yourself since most people consider her a martyr who died for what she believed in , was it just good fiction or is thos how you think it actually went ? Is there any proof of it ?

Q: As someone who is esentialy writing fiction, you sometimes have to play a little fast and loose with historical ecidence as well as filling in the gaps in history. But as a historian, you try to stick to the facts as closely as possible and create a realistic picture of the period. How do you create a balence between the two?

q Will you ever be writing a book on Queen Catherine's sister, Joanna of Castile (aka Joanna the Mad / Juana La Loca)? She is SUCH an interesting historical figure and someone who would be fascinating to learn (and read) more about so it's sad that there really isn't too much on the market about her. Would LOVE to get your take on her as I adored your portrayal of Catherine in the Tudor series!

Do you have a say in who narrates your books? Just one tiny negative, the word great is used many, many times in the books, especially the Kingmaker's Daughter . I like that you give clues as to what is fact and what is fiction too. Thankyouer

Q: In your Plantagenet series, you continue with what is a central aspect of your Tudor novels: the portrayal of women whose position allowed them the opportunity of holding power, however transitory or precarious, and whose attempts at establishing or furthering this power always come at a heavy price. Writing from a 21st century perspective, aware of the issues of feminism and female empowerment, and looking with hindsight at the enormous obstacles women were up against in the Plantagenet and Tudor eras, you depicts women who have to make great sacrifices to have a chance of breaking through the glass ceiling of patriarchal authority. In what way would you say that this exploration of historical women also reflects your ideas on women’s position today?

I recently read a novel from another historical author told from the viewpoints of two Ladies during Edward's tumultuous reign, but the two women chosen to narrate were not sufficiently involved directly in athe affairs of the day, and much of the book ended up being exposition about the main events and their reactions to it. Obviously a poor choice for narrators, but you don't shy away from female narrators. How do you choose people to narrate, and how do you keep the story from becoming "history as told to this woman on the sidelines"?

q On a segue from The Kingmaker's Daughter, my question is about The Other Boleyn Girl. Did you ever feel any compassion for Anne? She's a strong antagonistic and powerful character over Mary, but were you yourself ever entranced, as it were, by her?

I also have a question about The Other Boleyn Girl: it is possible that Anne was the "good sister and good daughter" and ascended to the throne through the influence of his sister when she was the mistress of Henry and Mary who was the manipulative sister who did everthing that she could to make her family to ascend to the throne?
