Cassandra Clark has written many plays, winning a Directors’ Guild Award and Edward Albee fellowship, as well as working with street theatre groups and installation artists on different projects.
She tutored on the Open University Humanities Foundation course and after writing over thirty contemporary romances now writes historical fiction featuring intrepid sleuth Hildegard of Meaux. Set in the 1380’s during a dark time of English history during the reign of the much maligned Richard II, the series draws on a childhood of running wild among the gothic abbeys of North Yorkshire, a love of early music and a curiosity about what happened to the rebels of 1381 who were not executed. She prefers fact to fantasy and hopes her series establishes an authentic social background to an unremittingly fictional hero – Abbot de Courcy – and heroine – nun sleuth Hildegard of Meaux.
All her books are published by St Martins Press.
