I’m a writer and historian with a focus on 14th and early 15th century Britain. My novels are set in the late 13th through early 15th centuries. On this blog I talk about my own writing and research, update news about my books, and spotlight fellow writers and historians I believe you’ll enjoy getting to know.
I’ve published two books in the Kate Clifford mysteries (The Service of the Dead, A Twisted Vengeance), with the third set to come out in September 2018, A Murdered Peace. 10 Owen Archer mysteries–so far (The Apothecary Rose, The Lady Chapel, The Nun’s Tale, The King’s Bishop, The Riddle of St Leonard’s, A Gift of Sanctuary, A Spy for the Redeemer, The Cross-legged Knight, The Guilt of Innocents, and A Vigil of Spies) and the Margaret Kerr trilogy (A Trust Betrayed, The Fire in the Flint, and A Cruel Courtship), an Owen Archer short story, “The Bone Jar” that was published in a CWA anthology and then Ellery Queen Magazine, and is now available as an e-book, and one contemporary crime short story, “Karma,” in Murder Past, Murder Present, Twilight Times Books 2009, a project of the American Crime Writers League.
Writing as Emma Campion I published two historical novels about women in the court of King Edward III whose reputations intrigued me: The King’s Mistress, a novel of Alice Perrers (2009 UK, 2010 US), and A Triple Knot, a novel of Joan of Kent (2014, Crown/Broadway US).
