Author Interview: Joanna Hickson (The Queen’s Lady)

This week I got to talk with Joanna Hickson, author of seven books (so far!) about 15th-century English women, mostly from the Tudor era.

The occasion for our chat is the paperback release of her latest book, The Queen’s Lady, which is about a very interesting Tudor-era woman I’d never heard of before named Joan Vaux.
