Anne’s Recent Updates

“It is important for a woman to have the duplicity to make good use of whatever gifts she might have, however valueless they might seem... You have to have the inner strength to pursue your goal, and not care how many enemies you make along the road. It is not easy.”
Anne O'Brien, The King's Concubine: A Novel of Alice Perrers

“And sometimes - to get what you want - you must be prepared to accept the apparently unacceptable.”
Anne O'Brien, Virgin Widow: England's Forgotten Queen

“The capacity to love does not die when the lover dies.”
Anne O'Brien, The King's Sister
