Goodreads asked Carol Mackrodt:

What are you currently working on?

Carol Mackrodt I find Mary, Queen of Scots, an intriguing person. Was she involved in the murder of her second husband? Was she promiscuous, using her famed beauty to suit her own purposes? Was she careless about the death and destruction that seemed to follow in her wake? And did she believe that Elizabeth I would not have the courage to execute a fellow monarch? These are the questions that historians have been arguing about over the centuries - just right for fictional interpretation.
