August 19, 2022

Happy 10th Birthday ’Le Temps Viendra: A Novel of Anne Boleyn'!

An Extract from the Audiobook

 

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the first publication of Volume I (of two volumes) of my first Tudor book, Le Temps Veindra: A Novel of Anne Boleyn. The book tells the story of Anne's innocence through the eyes of a 21st-century heroine, drawn back in time and into Anne's body during some of the most dramatic and exhilarating times in her life.

To celebrate, I have decided to publish an excerpt from the second volume of the audiobook. I start off this episode though by talking a little about the book and how it came into being before we move into the reading. So, in this 'extra'-ordinary episode, it's time to go on a different time travelling adventure. Grab a cuppa! It's story-time with Sarah...

I also had the pleasure of meeting with the author, Sarah Gristwood, in the Leicester Gallery at Knole. We shared an enlightening conversation about courtly love and the Tudors and how this medieval idea still shapes our ideals of love today as she tells us about her new book, The Tudors in Love: The Courtly Code Behind the Last Medieval Dynasty.

The Very Best of Typically English Things to do When Visiting the UK: Travel Essentials

August 20, 2021

If you are someone who loves to pack your bags and hit the road to see your Tudor history and want loads of inspiration and top tips for travelling and visiting historic locations here in the UK, then this show is for you.

Each month, I will be teaming up with Philippa Brewell from 'British History Tours' to answer your most pressing travel-related questions, hearing from a guest about their favourite historic place to visit, stay (or take rest and refreshment).

In this month's episode, Philippa and I chat about traditional English things to do when you visit the UK. You'll hear about some of our quirks and customs as we discuss some quintessentially English food, drink and things to do. I'm also joined by special guest, John Coupland, who tells us about his private tours of South East England, and shares one of his favourite Tudor places to stay.
