Read full description of the books:
A richly atmospheric historical novel hypothesizing the claim of one Arthur Dudley, and the premise that his claim to be a son of Elizabeth I and her paramour Robert Dudley was true.
We are certain that Elizabeth II, a vital woman with a strong appetite for things physical like dancing, riding and hunting was no virgin!
And we can be sure that her great love relationship with Robert Dudley had a physical side.
Could her relationship have led to the birth of a child, whose pregnancy she hid on one of her summer progresses. then spirited away by the
Queen's trusty servant Kat Ashley and her Prime Minister William Cecil, while Elizabeth was told the child had died?
Far fetched? Could have happened.
There was a man who did claim to be the child of suck a liaison, who knows?
Large parts of Arthur's journal detail the life he is given by Maxwell, included his love for horses inherited by his father , his cruel tretment at the hands of his insane adoptive mother Maud, his first sexual liaison, his military adventures in the Netherlands where he becomes a trusted confidante of William Prince of Orange and takes part in the struggle of Dutch Protestants for independence I partiucarly like the dutch section of the novel-it was rich and lively). And his adventures as a spy in Catholic Spain of the Inquisition and his love for a young Marrano Jewish widow
Lots on the romance between Elizabeth and Dudley and a great chapter on the defeat of the Spanish Armada which was prophesied.
Interesting perspectives and coverage of the great philosopher and seer Doctor John Dee.
A tight packed historical novel...brilliant visual details. Also a good story, swift, various and at all times exciting

Read information about the author
I'm delighted to share with you the release of my latest book, "Page-Turner: Your Path to Writing a Novel that Publishers Want and Readers Buy." As the author of novels with sales of over half a million books, I hope "Page-Turner" will help and inspire emerging writers everywhere.
Here's a little background about me. Before becoming an author, I enjoyed a twenty-year acting career in film and TV, and in stage productions across North America. I loved being an actor.
It felt like a natural extension of my acting to create characters for fiction, and in 2008 Kensington Books published my first novel, "The Queen’s Lady," set in Tudor England. It was the first in what became the Thornleigh Saga series of seven books. ("Riveting Tudor drama in the bestselling vein of Philippa Gregory" - USA Today)
Here are the Thornleigh Saga books in order:
1. The Queen's Lady (2008)
2. The King's Daughter (2009)
3. The Queen's Captive (2010)
4. The Queen's Gamble (2011)
5. Blood Between Queens (2013)
6. The Queen's Exiles (2014)
7. The Traitor's Daughter (2015)
I've also written four thrillers, including "Entrapped," winner of the IndieBrag Gold Medallion.
As a story coach and mentor, I have launched many writers on the path toward published success.
