Author and historian of childbirth and women's lives
Getting my hands dirty in all aspects of women's lives in the medieval and early modern period, from Queens to commoners. Devil's advocate and peddler of unusual theories. Particular interests lie in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century, in gender relations, Queenship and identity, rites of passage, pilgrimage, female orthodoxy and rebellion, superstition, magic, fertility and childbirth. Always interested in the gory details. Has produced two boys and a few books.
