[quote=""Elizabeth""]I’ve posted here and there and I’d like to introduce myself. I’m a lifelong reader and lover of historical fiction, and I’m gobbling up the posts here on the board and making many lists of new books to read.

My own debut historical novel has just been sold to Penguin/NAL. The working title is THE SEC0ND DUCHESS, it’s set in sixteenth-century Ferrara, and it’s a re-imagining and continuation of Robert Browning’s poem “My Last Duchess.” I’m now working on a new book set in the Scotland of Mary Queen of Scots’ personal reign, involving passion, murder, intrigue, some lost quatrains of Nostradamus, and a girl who can read the future in flowers.

And reading! Lots of reading. I’m so pleased to have found this board.[/quote]
Hi Elizabeth,

Congrats on selling your novel and welcome to the Forum!
