I spent over five years researching the life of Imperial Ambassador, Eustace Chapuys, who for 18 years was the most important source of the Tudor period, resulting in my debut book, Inside the Tudor Court: Henry VIII and his Six Wives through the eyes of the Spanish Ambassador.(Amberley Publishing) It is the first and only biography of the ambassador. My second book,Among The Wolves of Court: the Untold Story of Thomas and George Boleyn, (Bloomsbury Academic) is the first scholarly biography of Thomas and George Boleyn, and is based on my extensive PhD research. This book explores the lives of Anne Boleyn’s father and brother, who are often marginalised in histories of the period.
Book three, the Wolf Hall Companion, is an historical accompaniment to the bestselling Wolf Hall trilogy by Hilary Mantel. I reveal the history behind the fiction, weaving it together with Hilary Mantel's interpretation. Book four, due out in 2021 with Bloomsbury Academic, will be announced soon.
