The book I didn't write.

Then I applied to Glamorgan University in Wales for my masters in Creative Writing, I was thinking of a historical novel.

Having read about the possibility to the (non) Virgin Queen having a child by Robert Dudley, I planned to write that little girl's biography. However, learning that the market was not good for historical novels, I switched to what would become The Card, a story about two women friends who shared the events of the past year through a single line of the same Christmas card sent back and forth.

Browsing our library for something to read I saw The Queen's Bastard, among Rick's books. Maxwell wrote the book I didn't. Good for her.
