Hi, welcome to my website!

Since I am a historian as well as an author, I've tried to combine the fictional with the historical on my website.

You can read an excerpt from The Midwife's Tale, or just go ahead and buy the book. But this website also has a lot of great information about the history behind the mystery.

The links to the left will allow you to explore topics ranging from the history of midwifery, to the English Civil Wars, to Bridget Hodgson, the real midwife who inspired me to write the novel.

If you have any questions about the history or the fiction, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
