Nathen Amin’s first book Tudor Wales was released in 2014 and was well-received, followed by a second book called York Pubs in 2016. His third book, the first full-length biography of the Beaufort family, The House of Beaufort, was released in 2017 and became an Amazon #1 Bestseller for Wars of the Roses. He is currently working on his fourth book, Pretenders to the Tudor Crown, for release in 2019.
Nathen is also the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK. He has a degree in Business and Journalism and now lives in York, where he works as a Technical Writer.
Mari Griffith turned to writing historical fiction in retirement after a working lifetime of producing, promoting and presenting a variety of programmes on the staff of BBC Wales. Her first novel Root of the Tudor Rose became an Amazon best seller and she followed that with The Witch of Eye, the story behind the most sensational treason trial of the 15th century. Both books were featured as a ‘Book of the Month’ by the Welsh Books Council and Mari is currently working on her third book.
