Genghis Khan is on the rampage, William Wallace is painting his face with woad and the Renaissance is in full swing in Italy. Sigh. There's never a dull moment.
Sunday Times Bestselling author Anne O’Brien was born in West Yorkshire. After gaining a BA Honours degree in History at Manchester University and a Masters in Education at Hull, she lived in East Yorkshire for many years as a teacher of history.
Today she has sold over 700,000 copies of her books in the UK and internationally. She lives with her husband in an eighteenth-century timber-framed cottage in the depths of the Welsh Marches in Herefordshire. When not writing she enjoys visiting the many churches, castles, black-and-white villages and battlefields in the area. It provides endless inspiration for her novels about the forgotten women of medieval history.
Anne's new book, The Royal Game, steps into the world of the famous letter-writing Paston family. Three remarkable women plot and struggle to climb the social ladder from peasant to gentry against the backdrop of the turbulent Royal Court and the Wars of the Roses. It will be published on 16th September 2021 in hardback and eBook, and on 31st March 2022 in paperback.
