When historical novelist Steph Haxton was asked to contribute to the BBC’s show ‘Antiques Roadshow Detectives’, she unearthed links between the Cornish Royalist Lewis Tremayne and underground anarchist plots against Cromwell’s Commonwealth. While researching her latest novel The Serpent’s Root, M J Logue did some digging into the murky personal life of Richard Grenville – and made some surprising discoveries. Steph and Mel discuss how historical fact is so often stranger than fiction.
This event will be followed at 1pm by the launch of Steph Haxton’s new novel A Cord of Three Strands, the sequel to Exposed to All Villainies. FREE admission for the 1pm launch event, all are welcome to attend.
