I’ve been writing since I was a kid and in love with Tudor England since my early teens when I discovered I have ancestors (The Sheltons) who were very active in Tudor times. I love to daydream, listen to music, play piano, read, walk in the woods and meet new people. I absolutely adore going about in my Tudor underwear to talk about clothes in Tudor times. Next year, I hope to have the outer garments as well. I enjoy speaking at book clubs, libraries, schools, just anywhere I can talk about life in the 16th century.
I also admire Southern literature and especially books about Appalachia, where I grew up. It is my dream to visit England, the sooner the better!
