Melding History with Fiction: The Fugitive King and the Forgotten Queen
How does a novelist spin facts into fiction? Find out as historical novelists Gillian Bagwell and Patricia Bracewell discuss the real events behind their books. Gillian Bagwell’s The September Queen is the gripping tale of the 17th century King Charles II and the woman who aided his escape from England after his terrible defeat at the Battle of Worcester. Patricia Bracewell’s Shadow on the Crown brings to vivid life the 11th century as Emma of Normandy weds a much older English king and must navigate an unfamiliar, treacherous court amid the constant threat of Viking invasion.
