After a haphazard early career spent working and travelling around the world, I started writing romance in order to fund a PhD in Medieval Studies. Naturally, that didn't turn out to be quite the easy option I thought it would be, but I was in the end able to support myself and complete first an MA and then a PhD at the University of York. My thesis, on the street and the perception of public space in later medieval and early modern York, was finally completed in 2004.Four years later, I turned 50, coincidentally in the same year that my 50th book was published, and I decided that it was time to change direction. I'm fascinated by the relationship between the past and the present and have always enjoyed 'time slip' novels and how they explore the possibility that it might be possible to go back in time and see what it was "really like". As a trained historian, I know that could never be possible, but as a storyteller, I find the premise irresistible ...I still live in York and continue to write romances as Jessica Hart in tandem with time slip novels for Pan Macmillan - and yes I *do* often get confused by my split identities. I teach occasional writing courses and am also a freelance project editor for illustrated books. Recent books edited include THE YORK MERCHANT ADVENTURERS AND THEIR HALL (2011), LINCOLN CATHEDRAL: A JOURNEY FROM PAST TO PRESENT (2010) and YORK MINSTER: A LIVING LEGACY (2008), all published by Third Millennium Publications.

This is one of a number of books I read over the holiday period, but didn't have the time (or more honestly the inclination) to write a review as I was reading it, so this review will not be as long or as detailed as my usual reviews are. Christmas was crazy busy with cooking and last minute shoppi...

I didn't think I was going to enjoy this when I first started it; I'm not into the paranormal at all and I wasn't sure about the time shifting aspect of the novel. However, as I started to read, I really got into the story and found myself reaching for the book for "just one more chapter". I prefe...
