That is wonderful!! I'll be waiting for those, specially the ones of Edward and his life/death and Roses stuff.

That's a lot of writing in a very small space of time...

That is indeed a lot of writing, how do you do it? I am so impressed.

I am especially looking forward to your book on Richard II, can't wait to read it.

Happy writing!

I look forward to reading them ... I've read the first two, and both were wonderful!


Kathryn Warner said...

Thank you, everyone! ;-) Yes, I am manically busy writing, and still teach as well! :)

I have a technical question. Do you use notecards?

Oh, and by the way I will buy each and everyone you write!

Kathryn Warner said...

Thank you, Lisa! Actually no, not usually.

What I respect most of this whole massive body of work is the ability to bring out tons and tons of information in a fluent form and the fact that the sources are, if possible, the original ones. None of the "this has been said many times before by other historians and so I repeat it here again" -stuff which plagues history so often.

That is great. It also brings many many historians and writers to shame when they write down stories which are, well, just stories based on stories written by other writers before and not any real written documents etc.

Excellent stuff and professionalism, interesting reading and whole lotta of entertainment too!

I can hardly wait! I don't know how you do it. Many take years to write a single book, whereas you write multiples, all at once! Jennifer
