Introduction Lisa J. Yarde writes fiction inspired by history. She is the author of a six-part series set in Moorish Spain, Sultana, Sultana’s Legacy, Sultana: Two Sisters, Sultana: The Bride Price, Sultana: The Pomegranate Tree, and Sultana: The White Mountains, where rivalries and ambitions threaten the fragile bonds between members of the last Muslim dynasty to rule in Europe. The first title in the series is available in different languages. Lisa has also published two historical novels set in medieval England and Normandy, On Falcon’s Wings, featuring a star-crossed romance between Norman and Saxon lovers before the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and The Burning Candle, based on the life of the first Countess of Leicester and Surrey, Isabel de Vermandois, progenitor of royal and non-noble lines still living today. Lisa’s short stories, The Legend Rises, part of the HerStory anthology, which chronicles the Welsh princess Gwenllian of Gwynedd’s valiant fight against twelfth-century English invaders, and The Heretic, part of the anthology We All Fall Down, wherein the Hispano-Muslim doctor Ibn al-Khatib fights the Black Death at great personal cost, are also available now.
