Manage episode 245111687 series 2517920
Awhile ago, on Facebook, I asked for suggestions on guests to have on the show. One of my followers (I wish I could recall who it was to thank them) requested Margaret George. At the time I believed she was unattainable. One day I worked up the nerve to contact her and ask - what was the worst that would happen, right? I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that she was interested. This was many, many, many months ago. Today, I finally talked to her and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation.
On today’s episode I welcome another one of my favorite authors, Margaret George. Margaret and I talk about her novels: The Autobiography of Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles and Elizabeth I. We discussed where her love of history originated as well as the history behind her books. We talk about the ridiculous 72,000 people Henry VIII executed, Katheryn Howard, the TV series The Spanish Princess and even Thomas Seymour (I didn't expect it). Be sure to stick around until the end to discover something you may not have known about this prolific author.
