Hurray! Philippa Gregory has a young adult novel coming

Great news for historical fiction fans.  Philippa Gregory will be releasing her first book for young adults next summer with Simon & Schuster UK Children’s.  I’m so excited as I totally loved The Boleyn Girl (FYI, the book was so much better than the movie).  And I devoured her other books including:  The Queen’s Fool, The Constant Princess and The Virgin’s Lover.  With a PhD in 18th Century Literature, it’s no surprise that Ms. Gregory is a master at creating richly layered stories with authentic historical backgrounds while maintaining tension and intrigue. I can hardly wait to see what she produces for the young adult market.
