Exciting news Libby!
Is Robert de Lacy related to John de Lacy and Roger de Lacy, barons of the hassles in the North and the Magna Carta issue?

I've just received an ARC for another novel about Aisha, the prophet Muhammad's favorite wife: Mother of the Believers by Kamran Pasha. While I enjoyed The Jewel of Medina, I would have to agree with other reviewers who have found it a fairly lightweight novel, rather in the vein of historical romance. Mother of the Believers is longer and looks as though much of it will be devoted to Aisha's life as a mature woman after Muhammad's death. I'll be interested to see if it's a more substantial novel.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

Yes he is. Roger plays a role in the story and John gets a mention too.

Interesting! I have mention of Roger in passing and a bit part for John in the current WIP with ref to the Northern Rebellion.

My story is set earlier than that so it'll be interesting to see how different or similar the versions of him are. Roger was quite a character though! I've been thinking about writing more about him.

That would be cool. :) The whole de Lacy bunch are a fascinating lot - as far as I've observed with my mostly perpheral eye. I was interested in the link between John de Lacy, William Marshal Junior and certain plots against John that were abounding circa 1209 to 1212. There was a lot of dodgy business going on there!
