A popular historian and novelist, British author Alison Weir first started writing as a teenager, penning a three-volume history of the Tudors before she was fifteen. At the same time she started the research that would eventually become the basis of her first published book, Britain’s Royal Families, in 1989. Now one of Britain’s bestselling authors, Alison Weir’s other non-fiction works include Richard III and the Princes in the Tower, Elizabeth, the Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine,Isabella, Katherine Swynford, Queens of the Conquest and A Tudor Christmas.
In 2006, Weir published her first novel, Innocent Traitor. Her other fictional works include The Captive Queen, A Dangerous Inheritance and she is currently working on the Six Tudor Queens series, focusing on the lives of the wives of Henry VIII.
The culmination of Weir’s sweeping Tudor saga focuses on the last of Henry VIII’s sextet of wives, Katharine Parr, and tells a compelling tale of religious suppression, unrequited love and regal duty.
