February, 1603. 
In Richmond Palace, London, the last Queen of the Tudor dynasty, Elizabeth I, is dying. 

As Death hovers at her elbow, waiting for her to obey his call, the aged Queen looks back on her life, and on the trials, victories and sorrows which brought her eventually, to the throne of England. Not quite three years old when her mother, the notorious Anne Boleyn, was arrested and executed on charges of adultery and treason, Elizabeth became a true princess of the Tudor era, in a time when the balance of power, politics and passion were fragile… and the cost of failure was death. Her childhood and teenage years were fraught with danger as competing factions and ideologies sought to undermine and destroy her in the bid for power at the Tudor court. 

This is the story of Elizabeth Tudor, last daughter of Henry VIII, and her journey to the throne of England. Told from her own mouth… the tale of the Bastard Princess, who would, one day, become England’s greatest Queen.

Meet the author

I am an independently published author, and proud and pleased to be so! I moved into a career in writing in October 2016 after working for sixteen years as a trading company manager for an animal welfare charity. Whilst still working full time, I scribbled away on my novels, and started to publish on Amazon Kindle and Createspace three years ago. When sales of my books reached the point where I could pursue a full-time career, I took the plunge and went for it. I’ve been a full-time author for one year now and have never been happier.

I write historical fiction, and have long been fascinated by the Medieval -Tudor periods of British history. The women of the era fascinate me in particular. Especially in the Tudor period there were so many strong, courageous and often wily women, who made history despite the challenges they faced. Although I write historical fiction at the moment, I have explored other genres and would like to become a multi-genre author at some point. I live in Cornwall with my patient partner, our dog Toby, and cat Mona.
