"I was brought up in an antique shop surrounded by old and interesting objects so historical fiction was a natural choice for me. I remember my father checking items of furniture for woodworm, and how gently he used to test to see if the yellowed varnish could be removed from old oil-paintings. His attitude gave me a respect for craftsmanship and I hope I have brought the same love and attention to detail to my novels.
My favourite places are Levens Hall in Cumbria and Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire."
