Her passion for Renaissance England started over 25 years ago when she sang William Byrd’s Ave Verum Corpus in chamber choir, and was struck by the artistic expression of the religious turmoil of this period. Five years after that first introduction, she moved to London where she immersed herself in the history and music of the period, even starting her own choir which sang in venues across North London.
She has been writing about history online since 1998 when she created The Colonial American Gazette to showcase her love of Colonial American history. That site is long defunct, though it lives on through archival pages, and it did earn her a scholarship to grad school, so it was a worthwhile endeavor.
She lives in Spain where she is a regular guest on all things Tudor on TRE Talk Radio Europe. She leads history tours to England each year (2018 will see a tour on the Women of the Wars of the Roses). She also teaches online courses on using web tools to build a platform for your passion.
