The Elizabethan golden age was peopled by a court of flamboyant and devoted men - each one unique, ambitious and talented. At its centre was a woman, Elizabeth, the Tudor princess who succeeded to the throne of England in 1558 and who vowed to her Parliament to remain unwed and a Virgin Queen for the rest of her life. How did such a diverse group of red-blooded men view their 'Gloriana?' What were their aims and intentions? What were their dreams? And just how did Elizabeth manage to control and manipulate them? A unique blend of fact and fiction brings the Elizabethan court and its inhabitants to life in an evocative series of biographical sketches that will inform and entertain in equal measure.

A fictional memoir. To explain, here is an extract from an article I wrote in 2014.
"The aim has been to go beyond the usual reading experience encountered by those of us who enjoy Tudor history, an experience in which we are presented with either a work of scholarly non-fiction, or else a novel with variable qualities of historical accuracy. I wanted, instead, to generate a certain 'magical uncertainty' with the facts - combining truth and fiction in which the sum becomes greater than its parts. This, I hope, might provide the reader with an overall impression of having learned and yet been entertained all at the same time.
It is, in other words, a collection of short stories set within a larger story - a special moment in time and space where reality and the world of the past and its inhabitants all meet up in the company of the reader."
