Anne Easter Smith

In my novels, I strive to serve those readers who are looking for accuracy in historical fact and yet also engage those who are looking for a good story with strong characters, a little romance and lots of period detail. My sixth book, This Son of York, completes my series about the York family during the Wars of the Roses and all are for those readers who enjoy settling into a book and living with the characters for a good long time. I spent my childhood in England, Germany and Egypt as the daughter of a British Army colonel. At my boarding school in Surrey a teacher we called "Conky" -- after William the Conqueror -- inspired my passion for history. When in my early 20s, I read Josephine Tey's "A Daughter of Time", I became particularly fascinated by Shakespeare's so-called villain, Richard III. After six books and sixty years of studying this period, I am regarded as somewhat of an expert on Richard III, and as such was interviewed on NPR after DNA proved that the bones found under a car park in Leicester, UK were indeed Richard's. When I'm not writing, I can be found either on the local stage or weeding my garden, the latter which I hate almost as much as I do sewing! My husband, Scott, and I live on Boston's North Shore and love biking, traveling, reading and sailing, I should also add that I'm a member of the Richard III Society and the Historical Novel Society.
