Thank you for dropping by. I am still writing Emma's Book 3 and so cannot even begin to hazard a guess as to when it will be released. The years 1013-1017 were VERY COMPLICATED in England, and I have written scenes set in Normandy and Denmark as well. Hang in there with me until I finish writing the book. When I type THE END, I'll be shouting about it.(less)

Emma's third book is still happening! I am working on revisions, so it is still "in process". But I should have it on my agent's desk very soon. (Revising is a lot easier than writing a first draft!) So please, stay tuned!(less)

Women of Power in Anglo-Saxon England by Annie Whitehead
"Miss Whitehead has the talent to entertain while informing. What a pleasure to read about the _women_ of Anglo Saxon England for a change. It is about time that the men were sidelined a little!

Women of Power in Anglo-Saxon England by Annie Whitehead
"The difficulty with studying women in history, especially the further back in time we go, is that they tend to be relegated to the shadows. When they are referenced, it may be only as a footnote to a man’s story or slandered for their agency. Trying " Read more of this review »

This is a quiet book. I don't know how else to describe it. There are no murders, no mysteries. Yet it is beautifully written and wonderfully imagined. It took me to a time not so long ago--one I can just barely remember from my girlhood. It took me, ...more

“As Norman bride and English queen she would walk a fine line between the interests of two rulers -- her brother and her lord. Both men would demand her fealty. One, at least, would exact a heavy price if she were to prove disloyal.”
Patricia Bracewell, Shadow on the Crown

“His vision blurred to haze, the sounds of feasting stilled, and from every dark corner, shadows streamed toward him until they reached the dais and formed a pulsing darkness before him. From its murky heart, his dead brother's face, eyes glowing and malignant, stared into his.”
Patricia Bracewell, Shadow on the Crown

“He was hounded by the shade of his brother, demanding terribly the price of blood... William of Malmesbury, the History of the English Kings.”
Patricia Bracewell, The Price of Blood
