Today’s blog tour stop is with Helen Hollick, author of historical fiction and historical adventure. The topic is My Year of Reading Top Historical Fiction Authors.
Helen Hollick is one of the top 40 authors selected in last year’s reader survey and has been on A Writer of History talking about her writing. She has written several series: The Sea Witch Voyages, The Saxon Series and Pendragon’s Banner Trilogy. I’ve already enjoyed two of her novels since becoming aware of her books!

My great thanks to Helen for her support!
