As you may know, I am one of the writers for the SheKnows Book Lounge. I get to write all sorts of fun things over there, but one of my favorite is a relatively new feature I’m calling Historical Fiction Beyond Anne Boleyn. Basically every month I’m writing a themed list of great historical fiction novels. So far I’ve written about Wars of the Roses books and books featuring classic authors.
This month my column is getting in the Halloween spirit and I’m writing about historical fiction featuring witches and witchcraft. There’s a great variety of books on the list (if I do say so myself), both strict historicals and those with a bit more fantasy in them. Jessica Spotwood’s Born Wicked and Mary Sharratt’s Daughters of the Witching Hill are both on my list. If you want to learn more about them, or see what other four books make the cut, check it out.
