Podcast cover
Read more

This is a supplemental episode of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast and is guest hosted by author Adrienne Dillard.

Adrienne has written two books, the first was Cor Rotto - a novel of Catherine Carey and the second was The Raven's Widow - a novel of Jane Boleyn. Adrienne's research has placed her at the top of people who know the most about Catherine Carey and that is why I asked her to be a guest host today.

About Adrienne:

Adrienne Dillard, is a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with emphasis in History from Montana State University-Northern. She has been an eager student of history for most of her life and has completed in-depth research on the American Revolutionary War time period in American History and the history and sinking of the Titanic. Her senior university capstone paper was on the discrepancies in passenger lists on the ill-fated liner and Adrienne was able to work with Encyclopedia Titanica for much of her research on that subject. Her previous works include best-selling novel,"Cor Rotto: A Novel of Catherine Carey" and "Catherine Carey in a Nutshell" for MadeGlobal's History in a Nutshell series. Her most recent novel, The Raven's Widow: A Novel of Jane Boleyn was released in February 2017. When she isn't writing, Adrienne works as an administrative assistant in the financial services industry and enjoys spending time with her husband, Kyle, and son, Logan, at their home in the Pacific Northwest.

Interview with Author Margaret George

Podcast cover
Read more

Awhile ago, on Facebook, I asked for suggestions on guests to have on the show. One of my followers (I wish I could recall who it was to thank them) requested Margaret George. At the time I believed she was unattainable. One day I worked up the nerve to contact her and ask - what was the worst that would happen, right? I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that she was interested. This was many, many, many months ago. Today, I finally talked to her and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation.

On today’s episode I welcome another one of my favorite authors, Margaret George. Margaret and I talk about her novels: The Autobiography of Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles and Elizabeth I. We discussed where her love of history originated as well as the history behind her books. We talk about the ridiculous 72,000 people Henry VIII executed, Katheryn Howard, the TV series The Spanish Princess and even Thomas Seymour (I didn't expect it). Be sure to stick around until the end to discover something you may not have known about this prolific author.

Order her books directly from her website with links to print and ebook version to by on any platform:  https://margaretgeorge.com/books/

Interview with Historian Dan Jones

Podcast cover
Read more

 *Note: This episode may include curse words or statements that may offend you, but let's be honest, that's what makes this one the most fun!

This episode is my final episode before I take a brief break from recording - don’t worry, I’ll be back in September. When I made the announcement that I would be switching to seasons in order to be able to spend more time with my family I  figured I needed my final episode to be a big one - one to hold you over for two months. I am pleased to announce that (in my opinion) I was able to do that by booking Dan Jones as a guest.

Dan Jones is a historian and author who many of you may recognize without needing an introduction. For those who are not as familiar with Dan you may recognize him as the host of Secrets of Great British Castles on Netflix, or Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty as well as a plethora of Tudor themed programs. Dan has eight books under his belt with his most recent one, Crusaders due out in the US his Fall.

In this episode we really cover a WIDE variety of topics and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it.
