Goodreads asked Cassandra Clark:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Cassandra Clark Oh this is easy! I simply love the period I'm writing about. The fourteenth century has everything. Richard II is such an under-rated king. He must have been very attractive as a human being because everyone who was ever close to him seemed to adore him. This includes the love of his life, Anne of Bohemia, his very young child-bride, Isabella of France, and his enemy's son and heir, later Henry V. Those who didn't love him were driven by envy - his over-ambitious uncle, Thomas Woodstock, and his hate-filled and ultimately murderous cousin, Henry Bolingbroke, later the disastrous monarch Henry IV.
