Karen Harper talks about her new historical mystery series
I have long studied and loved Queen Elizabeth I. She and the Tudors make the feuding Windsors look like the Brady bunch. And the Virgin Queen was truly a modern woman in so many ways, however bizarre some of the culture and customs of her day.
So writing this series intrigued me for two reasons: I love a good mystery and I love great character studies Also, I've visited England many times and am the most rabid Anglophile. So while I write these books, I'm enjoying being mentally in Merrie Olde England, which was not so merry after all.
THE POYSON GARDEN occurs in the two months leading up to Elizabeth's becoming queen. She had fought long and hard even to stay alive, and the master poisoner has the queen at the top of a Boleyn blood-ties hit list. The book sweeps from castle to manor in the English countrysdie--a great escape.
I note that there are two new movies on Her Majesty, so fascination in her never ceases. This is the premier of a new series, which I hope will be as long-lived as Good Queen Bess herself. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
