HT News

C W Gortner has another interesting author interview. This time he has interviewed Kamran Pasha, author of Mother of the Believers, which is about Aisha, one of the more influential figures in Islam. Aisha was also one of the main characters in last year's controversial book Jewel of Medina by Sherry Jones.

Michelle Moran also has a new author interview on her website. This time she has been talking to Jack Woodville London who is writing a trilogy set in WWII. I have to say that I am going out to look for Mr London's book now!

Speaking of author interviews, Sharon Kaye Penman has been interviewed over at A 'n' E Vibe

Sad news with the passing of French historical fiction author Maurice Druon, author of The Accursed Kings series, plus a former politician. Druon led a very interesting life. French president Nicolas Sarkozy paid tribute saying Mr Druon was "a great writer, a great Resistance fighter, a great politician and a great soul."


  1. Ihad no idea about Druon, how sad. I have plans to read that series but it seems there's never time...
