My writing friend Helen Hollick, a powerhouse of fiction production and historical fiction champion, is hosting a month long blog tour featuring heroines in modern historical fiction. She’s enlisted nine others, including me, to take part. Each Tuesday, Helen will talk about one of her heroines and introduce two further ones.
This week, (13 October), Helen compares the two Ediths from 1066 and introduces three more heroines: Regina Jeffers takes a different look at Miss Elizabeth Bennett of Longbourn, Diana Wilder gives us excerpts from her account of Southern lady Lavinia Wheeler during the American Civil War and Elizabeth Revill tells us about Carrie, a courageous young woman coming of age in Wales between the wars.
I’m introduced next week (20th October) after Helen’s piece on King Arthur’s women, and I let you into some revelations about the formidable Aurelia Mitela, along with Sophie Perinot and her heroine Princess Marguerite, Medici daughter.
Oh, and we’re tweeting about it all month using # Do join in!
