I was born in England but many years ago I left the cold north-east of England to enjoy the wonderful culture and climate of Soouthern Spain. I’ve been studying the fascinating history of the Al-Andalus Empire ever since I saw the Alhambra Palace in Granada, near my home town. My stories are inspired by the real women who lived in the Palace, and who quietly, discreetly, influenced the politics of their day.
