Welcome.

New on my family history page are the Wakes of Somerset. Alice was burned at the stake for contriving the murder of her husband Ralph Wake.

 

My favourite fantasy, Pangur Ban, has been re-issued by Spring Song Press. This time, there is an ebook, as well as a paperback.

Now out: the sequel, Finnglas of the Horses, published by Spring Song Press.

I am also a keen family historian. I am researching my own family history, mosty in Devon and Kent, and my husband Jack Priestley’s ancestors, mainly in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Some lines go back more than 30 generations, from paupers to lords of the manor. I even know the village in Normandy one of my ancestors came from.
