By reading about the Queen’s colourful life story she realised that history need not be the boring subject she learnt at school and that royal history can be both fascinating and fun.
She says it is like a historical version of Hello magazine. This is Susan’s first book on her lifelong interest in royal history. It was written after she and her husband went on holiday to Germany and visited 25 different historic castles and palaces (called ‘schloss’ in German). With dozens of royal families in Germany until the country was fully unified, there are many more castles to go. So watch out for the next instalment in book 2 of Schloss.
Susan has an MA in Victorian Studies from London University.
She lives with her family in Cornwall, in the far south west of the UK, which for her is the most beautiful part of the whole country.
