This year I am working on my fourth book for Bloomsbury Publishing, provisionally titled: Thunder Through The Realms: Five Kingdoms and the shaping of Early Modern Europe and I will be able to talk about that soon! In the meantime, you can also catch me on Hever Castle's fantastic new online subscription series: Inside Hever Castle, which allows viewers to explore this historic property from the comfort of your home.

I was supposed to speak this year at St Peter's Church, Hever, for a very special evening to celebrate the Church's 900 year anniversary, but due to Covid, this event has been postponed to 2022.
For the last year, I have been a consultant and expert contributor for an exciting new three part series on the Boleyn family for BBC2, titled "The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family" The series draws on my research of the Boleyn men, and features a terrific lineup of historians and actors, telling the family's story through their eyes.
