Margaret George confirmed for #HNSLondon12
February 15, 2012
Margaret George’s first novel, The Autobiography of Henry VIII, was published in 1986, and is now in its 33rd printing. A London Times and New York Timesbestseller, it was – and still is – the only novel to tell Henry VIII’s story from his point of view. Following that were Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles (1992), The Memoirs of Cleopatra (1997), which was made into an ABC-TV miniseries, Mary Called Magdalene (2003), Helen of Troy (2006) and this year’s Elizabeth I, which focuses on the later years of the queen. All were bestsellers.
She has also written a children’s book about turtles, Lucille Lost (2006).
