I’m excited to welcome some of my favourite historical fiction authors to visit and chat about themselves and their books. In the coming weeks, I’ll be talking with authors from a wide range of historical eras – from Anglo Saxons to the Stuarts, alternative world Romans to Tudors, and other fascinating settings. And, my guests will share all kinds of great insights – from their own favourite novels, to their writing approach – or even a novel which makes them cry, still. So, pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee (that’s another question) and enjoy getting to meet the authors behind some extraordinary historical fiction.
This week, best-selling author Cryssa Bazos joins me and talks about her love of 17th Century England, naming her characters (or how they named themselves), and which novel she considers the most under-appreciated historical fiction (hint: it’s by Daphne du Maurier).
