More About the Author
Joanna Hickson was born in England but spent her early childhood in Australia, returning at thirteen to explore her first castle and develop a fascination with medieval British history. She also discovered a love of words in all their guises, took a degree in Politics and English and a career in journalism, spending twenty five years in the BBC producing and presenting News and Arts programmes for TV and Radio. Joanna has previously published a children's historical novel but is now writing adult fiction in the period she fell in love with as a child, indulging her passion for bringing the medieval past to life. She is married, lives in an old farmhouse near Bath, has a large extended family on both sides of the world. She welcomes contact on Facebook (Joanna Hickson) and Twitter (@joannahickson) but warns that she spends a lot of time in the fifteenth century!
