I am a writer of historical fiction set in 11th century England. My debut novel, Shadow on the Crown, is the first book in a trilogy about Emma of Normandy, whose marriage in A.D. 1002 to an English king set in motion a series of events that would lead, eventually, to the Norman Conquest of A.D. 1066.

The turn of the first millennium in England was a terrible time, one far better to read about than it would have been to live through. I hope that your exploration of this website will pique your interest enough that you do read this first episode in Emma’s story, and that you will be inspired to read those to follow as well. Welcome!
