We love history, just like you do. That’s why it is always nice to be able to announce dates where you can meet our authors.

Toni Mount, well known and loved historian and author of the Sebastian Foxley Medieval Murder Mystery Series, will be attending the RIII Society AGM on Saturday, 30th September at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, 2-8 Hanger Lane, Ealing, London W5 5HN.

Almost as exciting as the news that Toni will be attending, we’ve heard that the guest speaker at the event will be Chris Skidmore – so that’s two amazing reasons to head over to the event.

A world exclusive…

And to top it all off, Toni will be at the event with copies of her latest novella “The Colour of Betrayal” for sale and for book signings. The book is out on October 2nd, so you’ll be the first to have read this book!

Author Wendy J Dunn has been interviewed by the great website “Behind the Pen” where she goes into some of her motivations for writing and research. Anyone who enjoys historical novels, or is an aspiring author should read this interview and get inspired!

“I build my characters – real and imagined – through thorough research. I love researching history and deepening my knowledge about people of the past, which means every novel I write increases my own personal reference library. But research is only just the start of the process. Wendy Dunn

Born on 21 September 1452, the very same year that Leonardo Da Vinci was born, Girolamo Savonarola: The Renaissance Preacher tells the story of a man who believed so wholeheartedly in God and the message that He was giving, that he gave his life for it.

The book is an introduction to the life and times of this infamous preacher, a man who was witness to the dramatic downfall of the Medici dynasty in fifteenth-century Florence, who instigated some of the most dramatic events in Florentine history and whose death is still commemorated today.


‘Thoroughly well researched and enthusiastically written. It is clear that Samantha Morris has great care for her subject and this is reflected in the quality of this work. A great introduction to Florentine politics in the late 15th century and the life of one of the most infamous individuals of the Renaissance’. – Katharine Fellows, St Peter’s College, University of Oxford
