I have had a passion for history since childhood, and in particular, a fascination with George Villiers, First Duke of Buckingham. I’ve loved researching and writing about him over the last few years, and visiting places associated with him. I qualified as a teacher in 1976 and am employed at a local college of further education. I live with my son and dog and hundreds of books and old documents. I really do need a larger study!
My historical novel, ‘Darling of Kings’, about the relationship of Charles I and the Duke of Buckingham, will be published this year, and I have a forthcoming biography of Buckingham with Amberley Publishing.
