April Munday has been telling stories for almost half a century. It started as a way of keeping her younger sister entertained and out of trouble while they were on holiday.

In her early teens she started writing stories down. Many years later she finished one and then another. When she wrote her first story set in the fourteenth century she knew that she had found her home.

Her romances are set either in the fourteenth century or the early nineteenth century. Her latest series, The Soldiers of Fortune, is about four brothers whose lives are changed by the Battle of Poitiers.

Austen is such a clever writer that the reader, like Emma herself, doesn’t even notice that they’re made for one another until more than three-quarters of the way through the novel. They make a comfortable pair from the very beginning and Mr Knightley is always there, sometimes in the background, sometimes in the foreground, gently guiding her when Emma needs it. (less)

I write it down and put it somewhere where I know I'll see it again and then get back to writing. There may be more than one thing that I've been trying to hold in my head and once they're out of the way the block is usually gone.(less)

Things I’ve Learned From The Canterbury Tales Part One

When I started reading The Canterbury Tales I guessed that I would come across a few things I didn’t already know about the fourteenth century. This has proven to be the case,  even within the first few pages, but some … Continue reading →

April Munday, The Knight's Tale

April Munday, The Knight's Tale

“But sometimes, to enable her to bear her life, she needed the accompaniment of an inward music and she could not always compose it for herself.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

“The position could not have been made clearer, whatever had been said, not only to those directly involved but to Sasha, Nyusha and Bacchus; their painful embarrassment communicated itself even to the mare, the foal, the golden rays of the setting sun and the gnats buzzing and swarming around Helen's face and neck.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

“But he didn't, it happened, know the Munsters well enough to give the case much of a lift; so that they were left together as if over the mere laid table of conversation.”
Henry James, The Ambassadors

“[Her eyes] had taken hold of him straightaway, measuring him up and down as if they knew how; as if he were human material they had already in some sort handled.”
Henry James

“It was all there, in short - it was what he wanted: it was Tremont Street, it was France, it was Lambinet. Moreover, he was freely walking about in it.”
Henry James, The Ambassadors
