Catherine Mathis

Bio: In September 2020, Death in Coimbra won a first-place blue ribbon in Chanticleer's Pre-1750 Historical Fiction category. Before Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet, Pedro and Inês lived and died in medieval Portugal. Death in Coimbra will enchant readers of historical fiction based on royal lives, those fascinated by their Iberian heritage, and travelers to Portugal. Pedro of Portugal has a Henry VIII problem. He must secure his line with male heirs. And the only way to reach his goal is to crown Inês – even though she has been dead six years. Madness. Catherine's debut novel is completed and professionally edited.  She is searching for an agent with a passion for medieval historical fiction of the type written by Elizabeth Chadwick, Sharon Kay Penman, and Carol McGrath.
