Happy Birthday, Queen Mary!

February 18, 1516, was an exciting day in Tudor England. After many attempts at bearing an heir, Katherine of Aragon finally gave birth to a surviving child. Princess Mary would later become the first Queen Regnant of England, despite her father's efforts to replace her in the succession.

To celebrate, and encourage people to drop the 'Bloody Mary' nickname, I am at EHFA today with a post on this unpopular Tudor who has become close to my heart.

My novelization of Mary's story will be available April 12, 2017. You can pre-order it now on Kindle. If I can cause just a few people to look at Mary's tragic story a bit more sympathetically, I will consider this work a success.

Happy birthday, Queen Mary!
