The Tudor Court…

Genres: Christian Fiction, Christian Historical Fiction, General Fiction, Historical Fiction, Juvenile, Juvenile Fiction

Now you’ve done it. I just finished reading and loving To Die For: a novel of Anne Boleyn and have started in on The Secret Keeper: a novel of Kateryn Parr. I’ve also started watching The Tudor’s on Netflix, minus a certain obvious bit it’s interesting and bringing the time more to life. Thinking about it this morning I had to locate When the Sparks Fly because that’s a novel of Elizabeth I. I put that one in the pile as well as grabbing my copy of a young royals novel The Wild Queen: a novel on The Days and Nights of Mary Queen of Scots.

I guess I’m on a Tudor court kick. Any other recommendations while I’m at it?

Why a shower perks me up creatively is beyond me. Maybe it’s the refreshing effect of all that warm water running over my head. Maybe a physical cleansing is accompanied by a mental cleansing. Maybe it’s since I can’t sing well enough to sing in the shower, I’m left with nothing to do but write in the shower! (If only Apple would introduce a waterproof iPad.) How do I decide what. . .
