Celebrating the Launch of the Pembridge Map

The famous Black and White Village of Pembridge in Herefordshire is launching an embroidered ‘Pembridge Map’ on the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend which will be displayed in the beautiful church.

I will be talking about my book Queen of the North and the Mortimer family (strong links with Pembridge!) at 11.am in the Church at Pembridge on Monday 27th May.

It is free to all.  Do come and join us for a splendid community and Mortimer event.


New for 2019: A Tapestry of Treason

A Tapestry of Treason

Excitingly New for 2019

Tapestry 7[2]


Her actions could make history – but at what price?

1399: Constance of York, Lady Despenser, proves herself more than a mere observer in the devious intrigues of her magnificently dysfunctional family, The House of York.

Surrounded by power-hungry men, including her  aggressively self-centred husband Thomas and ruthless siblings Edward and Richard, Constance places herself at the heart of two treasonous plots against King Henry IV.  Will it be possible for this Plantagenet family to safeguard its own political power by restoring either King Richard II to the throne, or the precarious Mortimer claimant?

Although the execution of these conspiracies will place them all in jeopardy, Constance is not deterred, even when the cost of her ambition threatens to overwhelm her.  Even when it endangers her new-found happiness.

With treason, tragedy, heartbreak and betrayal, this is the story of a woman ahead of her time, fighting for herself and what she believes to be right in a world of men.


A Tapestry of Treason will be available in hardback and ebook on 22nd August 2019.
