Writers of historical fiction do an immense amount of research to ensure that they can evoke the period they are writing about as realistically as possible. Although only a small amount of that research finds its way into the finished work, readers are often interested in the sources a writer has consulted.

Below, I have listed many of the sources – primary, secondary and websites – that I consulted when researching my novels.

Elizabethan novels – England in the 1580s

Cold Blows the Wind – Hobart Town 1878
