Richard III: Stunning New Portrait


This I find staggeringly moving. After five-hundred years, the nasty rumours about how Richard looked can all be quashed.
 
I've been invited to write a quartet of novels about my favourite period in history, The Wars of the Roses, using a script which has lain dormant for years--the biographies just kept getting in the way! The first one comes out in a few months time in what has been my busiest year ever--thanks to the handful of loonies who blasted word of my 'dirty deeds' all across the Internet, I'm getting stuff published which might otherwise have stayed in the files in the loft. I'm not up to Richard yet. He'll be in Volume Three, but at least we now know what he really looked like.
