Jodi Taylor (who also writes as Isabella Barclay) is, and always has been, a History Nut. Her disinclination to get out of bed for anything after 1485 can only be overcome by massive amounts of chocolate, and sometimes, if it's raining, not even then.
She wanted to write a book about time-travel that was a little different, and not having a clue how difficult this would make her book to classify, went ahead and slung in elements of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy and anything else she could think of. Her advice to booksellers is to buy huge numbers of her books and just put one on every shelf.
The result is the story of the St Mary's Institute of Historical Research and the nutters who work there.
In order, The Chronicles of St Mary's consist of the following titles -
Just One Damned Thing After Another
A Symphony of Echoes
A Second Chance
A Trail Through Time.
No Time Like the Past
What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
The seventh in the series, provisionally entitled, 'Lies, Damned Lies and History', should be available early in 2016.
Also available are five short stories -
When A Child is Born
Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings (available for pre-order now)
The Very First Damned Thing (available for pre-order now.)
Her first romantic novel, also available on Amazon, is entitled The Nothing Girl, and the story of Jenny and Russell is continued in the short story, Little Donkey.
Never knowing when to stop, she thought she'd try her hand at an historical romance novel as well. A Bachelor Establishment by Isabella Barclay is available now.
