The Steel Beneath the Silk
♦ This Interview at Writing the Renaissance offers an inside look at my writing process as I answer insightful questions from my colleague Julianne Douglas.
♦ In this Blog Post at Novels Alive I muse about the difficulties of killing off historical figures when we don’t know how they actually died.
♦ What surprised me about the historical Queen Emma? What was the most difficult scene to write? (Take a guess.) Find the answers to these questions and more at Amy Bruno’s Passages to the Past.
♦ Discover the meaning behind the title THE STEEL BENEATH THE SILK at Let Them Read Books.
♦ Go to Books and Benches for some insight into the characters of Emma and Elgiva.
♦ Learn more about the men of Emma’s world at Chicks, Rogues, & Scandals.
♦ On 4/17/21 I was in conversation with best selling historical novelist David Gilman, talking about how we decided to write historical fiction, about our characters, and about how history informs our stories.
♦ Book Launch Reading and Q&A at A Great Good Place For Books, 3/4/21
I answer reader’s questions and read alooud a scene between Emma and Athelstan. (Bring a hanky.)
♦ Want to know how to pronounce some of those pesky Old English names? Pat Lady Bracewell speaks with the Anglo-Saxon Monk, and he enlightens us all. We forgot Ulfkytel (my fault), so here’s how you say that one: ULF kittle.
♦ Learn more about the historical Emma of Normandy. A huge thank you to Alastair Clark for this interview on 2 March 2021, International Women’s Day as part of a presentation about Emma in Derbyshire, U.K.
♦ 3/29/21 Historical figures, a haunted king, battles & research are just a few of the topics that Susanne Dunlap & I cover on her podcast IT’S JUST HISTORICAL.
