Events

I have listed the talks I often provide below. Depending on your particular interests I can vary the content to include more, for example on sixteenth century history, women’s lives in Tudor England, or my writing.

I’m also available for book signings, book club meetings and book fairs, either in costume or not.


An Audience with the Lady Katherine and a peep inside her wardrobe

In character and in costume as the Lady Katherine with a costume demonstration and Q&A;


A Woman of Noble Wit

A presentation in or out of costume about my book “A Woman of Noble Wit” and/or my experience of writing followed by a “meet the author” Q & A and/or book signing
