Writing about Queens

IMG_0753IMG_0920It’s been a while since I have been on here. Right at this moment the wind is howling, snow is flying and we are in the middle of a blizzard. My 97 year old home is creaking as the wind slams against it. There is a lull and then the wind roars down my road again.
My life as a self published author has had many highs and a few lows. After publishing three books in 2015, I decided I need a much needed break from writing and publishing books at the speed I was going that year.
Now I work part time and beginning next month I will go back to school to finish my BS. I have my courses picked for the first three terms.
Now what does that have to do with writing? A lot actually. My schedule will be dictated by my classes and my job.
I have three books, in the works. One is a historical. The second is a third in my Brewster series and lastly a sequel for The Kings of Angkor. That book and its subjects are very close to my heart. Going over photos from my 2nd trip to my beloved temples in the summer of 2015 made me homesick for my adoptive country.
I have always loved the Medieval times. That with WWII coming in right behind. I just finished “The Sunne in Splendour” by Sharon Kay Penman. Anything on the War of the Roses is greatly enjoyed by this author. Books by Sharon Kay Penman toping my to read pile. She is my favorite author of all time. After her, is Elizabeth Peters. The first time I ever heard about TWotR was from my aunt Ernestine. She wasn’t my aunt but actually a very good friend of the family. She told me her family was part of that war. I want to dig to find out how. Thankfully I was surrounded by people who loved history. It passed down to me.

For those of you have read my Brewster books, Aunt Ernestine/Tiny is part of the books because of my Aunt Ernestine :-)
There is a lot of written records on the queens of England and Europe at that time. Not a whole lot when it comes to Cambodia. You really have to dig or in my case read the walls of Angkor Wat and the Bayon.

Because of time restraints I will be focusing my writing and research to the sequel of The Kings of Angkor.
