Today I’m chatting with author Nicola Cornick, whose newest timeslip novel, The Phantom Tree, recently kept Elyse and I reading nonstop. In this interview, we talk about the transition she made from writing romance to writing historical fiction, and the challenge and opportunity of basing historical fiction on a real person, and placing her amid fictional characters. We also discuss the real challenges of being an unprotected woman in the Tudor era, the ways in which people really have not changed all that much, and what sorts of questions - and people - she encounters when she gives tours at Ashdown House, a property that featured in her book House of Shadows. And of course, she recommends books she’s enjoyed. Note: there is a little bit of popping in the audio - probably due to the overseas connection. Sorry about that!
