I write about medieval history, for which I have a passion. I write about the women, born into a world dominated by the policies of men, who are almost silent in the records of their time. Raised under the authority of father, husband, brother; they seem to have so little to say to us.

But is this true?

I think they have much to say and it is my pleasure to give them a voice in the 21st century.’
