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)

Apologies for not responding sooner. I didn't see your question until just now. This is not the same time period as Ragnar Lothbrok and King Ecbert. (Aethelred II named all his sons after earlier kings, so that's why the names are the same.) The King Ecbert in the Vikings t.v. show ruled as king of Wessex from 802-839. He was the grandfather of King Alfred the Great. My novels don't begin until 1002. As for the Uhtred who we all know and love from Bernard Cornwell's books, he was an ancestor of the Uhtred who appears in my books, and of course he is contemporary with Alfred the Great who ruled from 871-899. So, lots of generations in between Cornwell's Uhtred and mine. I hope this information helps.(less)

“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
