Interview with Judith Starkston about Hand of Fire on the UTube Channel, Fantasy Fiction Focus
My favorite posts around the web this week: Archaeology from Neolithic to Roman, Pat Bracewell’s research, saffron.
My review of Patricia Bracewell’s The Price of Blood. Queen Emma of England in 1006 faces Vikings, a self-destructive husband and illicit love. Excellent, dark sequel to Shadow on the Crown.
I’ve joined a wonderful group of authors. You’ll find my post “Giving Briseis Her Voice” on Historical Fiction eBooks, as well as a page about Hand of Fire and an author page about me.
