Generally I take a blogging break on weekends, but I just had to make an exception for a visit with Lisa Yarde at Unusual Historicals.  Lisa and I met several years ago at a Historical Novel Society Conference and have been friends since.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Savoyards (Marguerite and Eleanor’s powerful relations on their mother’s side), or you’re curious about the creative passion I pursue when I am not writing, put down your Sunday paper, pour yourself a mug of coffee and stop by.
