I am a writer of historical fiction set in 11th century England. It is a time and a place that have always fascinated me, and in my books I try to re-create that distant world for my readers. I hope that your exploration of this website will pique your interest in that world, and in a very remarkable woman: Emma of Normandy, England’s twice-crowned queen.
