Author Spotlight: Kate Emerson Author of The Secrets of the Tudor Court Series

Kate Emerson, is a wonderful author who excels in the scandals of the Tudor court. She never is a let down with her characters and I seriously consider her one of my favorite authors. Here is a little bit more about Kate and some really interesting links to follow up on for further reading.

"Kate Emerson is the pseudonym of a well-known writer of historical mysteries and nonfiction. She is not trying to confuse readers, only distinguish between two very different types of writing. Kate Emerson's historical novels are set in the Tudor era (England 1485-1603) and feature real but little known historical figures as the protagonists. Kate Emerson lives and writes in rural Western Maine, where she shares her home with her husband and three cats."

"Well, okay. Kate is really Kathy Lynn Emerson, author of the Face Down Mysteries featuring Susanna Appleton, 16th century gentlewoman, herbalist, and sleuth, the award-winning How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries, and a wide assortment of other books. Speaking now as both Kate and Kathy, here's what I look like in 16th century dress, accompanied by a more or less recent picture of the uncostumed me."

I love the costume Kathy you rock it girl! You look pretty dang good in it too. I am going to have to check out "How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries" it sounds like something I would very much enjoy.
