Your cheeky guide to the dynasty

Guess What Day It Is…


It’s Book Release Day!

You can find my book (with 50+ gorgeous illustrations by Lisa Graves) in bookstores and on Amazon (US, UK, and select European channels). 🙂

It’s Almost Here!


On the 3rd of November, the second edition of my book The Tudor Tutor: Your Cheeky Guide to the Dynasty will release! I’m terribly excited and am hoping you will enjoy it.

If you’re the impatient type, as I am, you can pre-order from Amazon here. Stay tuned!

Hey, UK…Hey, EU!

The news is out: When the second edition of my book releases this November, it will be available not only in the States but also in the UK and the EU! It will be distributed to booksellers there by Perseus. I’d received many questions regarding distribution and I just found out today, so I wanted to share. =)

I’ll Tumble for Ya


I’m on a social-media whirl this week! Well, I’ve always loved reaching out via social media channels, but there were a few I hadn’t yet embraced. That’s all changed! A few days ago I joined Snapchat (thetudortutor), and today I’m fresh onto tumblr.

I hope I’ll see you there, over there, and everywhere!

All Things “Teaching”


Did you know that the “tutor” in my title is a nod to my background in education? Aside from all the yummy history boards on my Pinterest page, I have a board devoted to my passion: education! There are ideas for fellow teachers regarding classroom organization, lesson tips and techniques, lighthearted teaching memes, quotes, and more. Go have a great time digging in over there!

Much chatter here in the U.S. about showing that a woman can, indeed, rule.

That’s already been done, and has continued since. 😉

Coming Your Way in 2015!


Voilà! The first official promo for the second edition of my book, with expanded content and illustrations by Lisa Graves (aka, The History Witch), releasing in November. Stay tuned for updates!

(Meanwhile, don’t be shy: Make sure you’re getting all the latest and greatest from me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.)
