    Hello claire, I had never come across you as a writer until this week when I got my regular Amazon email about the type of books I like to read. I’m an avid reader of Phillipa Gregory, as to me she brings history alive. I’m aware that a lot of what she write is supposition, but having found history interesting over the years but ‘dry’ in a lot of cases, it fitted the bill for me. I’ve also read a few by Alison Weir, which I ‘ve really enjoyed, and recently found a book in a charty shop by Antonia Fraser about the Six Wives of Henry the Eighth, which I have been dipping into.
    I really enjoyed reading the extract on Amazon from The Anne Bolyne Collection. It has whetted my appetite, and is on my wish list. I will continue to follow you and your writing, which is extremely readable and for me compelling. All the best Jen Robinson

    Hi Jen,
    Thank you for your very kind comment and I’m so glad that you enjoyed the extract from The Anne Boleyn Collection. I too have lots of Philippa Gregory books and they are all great reads as long as readers can treat them as fiction and not take them seriously. The Antonia Fraser book is very good, as is Alison Weir’s book on the Six Wives, and you’d also probably enjoy David Starkey’s six wives book, it’s very good. Have you read any Jean Plaidy? I love her “Murder Most Royal” about Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard.
