Emma Darwin was brought up in London, with interludes in Manhattan and Brussels. Her childhood travelling often inspires the background of her fiction, as do other interests such as photography, horse riding and, of course, history. Emma's first novel, The Mathematics of Love, was nominated for, among others, the Commonwealth Writers and Goss First Novel awards, and so far has been translated into eight languages. It intertwines the stories of a veteran of Waterloo in 1819, and a disaffected teenager in 1976. "Hauntingly beautiful" - Washington Post Book World. "A book that works on every conceivable level" - The Times (London). Her new novel, A Secret Alchemy, re-imagines the world of the Princes in the Tower through the eyes and voices of their mother and uncle. "Breathtaking drama" - Publishers Weekly. "Sorcery... Spellbinding" - The Times (London). Emma is the great-great granddaughter of Charles Darwin and his wife Emma Wedgwood, but has no plans (at the moment) to write about them.

An absorbing book - followed 3 threads: Elisabeth Woodville from the time of her first marriage, Her brother Anthony as he travelled towards his execution, and a "modern" (somewhere in the 1990's) story. This is probably the most sympathetic treatment of Elisabeth I've read, and certainly one that g...
