    1. I think you will love the Legendary Women of World History series. Eight books so far with three more in the pipeline for 2018/9. Narrative history so while they read like fiction, everything in them is factual as best as we can redact. Plus each book has a wealth of reference information in the appendices. I don't remember dates very well so nearly all of the books have timelines in them -- created both to help me keep events straight as I work and to guide you with what happened, when, and in what sequence. They usually cover outside, influencing events too. :)

    1. Thank you most kindly! Whenever I can, I prefer to create my covers for these biographies from period artwork. Later this month we'll be featuring "Mary Queen of the Scots" and "Queen Elizabeth Tudor: Journey to Gloriana" whose covers are contemporary paintings of both women. The covers for Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd and Empress Matilda of England both come from a medieval codex from Germany featuring the same style of dress as each woman wore. Please check those out too!

  4. Thanks, Buddy! I do hope you are entering to win one of the trees. Boudicca used the shelter of trees to defend her people from the Romans. Trees are wonderful!
