Frequently asked questions:

What is the chronological order of your historical novels? In which order is it best for me to read them in?



Some readers, new to my novels, enjoy reading them chronologically.  There is no real reason to so, since they are all stand-alone and none of them builds towards another, but here is the order by date for those who wish to do so:

Devil’s Consort: Eleanor of Aquitaine: the early years

The Uncrowned Queen: short story and ebook only: Philippa of Hainault and Edward III

The next four all take place during the same time scale, in the reigns of Edward III and Richard II with some characters appearing in more than one novel:

The King’s Concubine: Alice Perrers and Edward III

The Scandalous Duchess: Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt

The Shadow Queen: Joan, the Fair Maid of Kent

The King’s Sister: Elizabeth of Lancaster, daughter of John of Gaunt and Blanche of Lancaster

And then the Chronology continues:

The Queen’s Choice: Joanna of Navarre and Henry IV

The Forbidden Queen: Katherine de Valois and her marriages to Henry V and Owen Tudor.

Virgin Widow: Anne Neville, wife of Richard of Gloucester

  1. Hi anne
    Just read The Forbidden Queen and loved it so much. Past it on to a friend to read and ahe also enjoyed it. What book should I read next?

    1. Hi Maree, So pleased that you enjoyed The Forbidden Queen. Thank you for passing the message on. All my novels are stand-alone so it does not really matter what you read next. This page on my webside might help because it is a question I am aften asked. It gives the chronological order and how they fit together. Here is the link.

      Many thanks for getting in touch, and all best wishes,
