Explore the Tower of London with author Jennifer C Wilson

Today, I'm delighted to welcome author Jennifer C Wilson. Her recent release, Kindred Spirits: Tower of London, will make you giggle. Follow the ghosts of King Richard III, and Tudor queens Katherine Howard and Anne Boleyn as Richard as they while away the nights – and the days – at the Tower of London! But Richard is on a quest...

Over to Jennifer...



Hi Cathie, thanks for being so kind as to invite me onto your blog today.

If we’re honest, it’s hard to resist “targeted overhearing” when we come across interesting conversations (Ok, yes, I mean eaves-dropping!). But what about historical eaves-dropping? What was really said behind closed doors? Given that we clearly can’t know for certain, we may as well be a little creative… And going even further, adding the idea of chatty (and chatting) ghosts, the possibilities are almost endless.

Once I’d had the niggling idea of Richard III and Anne Boleyn bonding in a mutual dislike of Henry Tudors, the voices of the Tower of London just wouldn’t stop coming. Richard’s brother, Anne’s brother, Katherine Howard, Jane Boleyn – all fascinating characters who just wouldn’t stop whispering.

So I let them.

There are so many tales in and around the Tower, the hardest part was picking which to follow. Even now, I’m reluctant to read too much about the Tower, for fear of finding somebody else who I wish I’d included. Maybe one day I’ll pay some others a bit more attention.

For now though, I hope you enjoy meeting the ones which came along for a chat this time. And, until Thursday 4th February, it is available for just 99p/c. Happy ghost hunting!

Kindred Spirits: Tower of London:

A King, three Queens, a handful of nobles and a host of former courtiers…

In the Tower of London, the dead outnumber the living, with the likes of Tudor Queens Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard rubbing shoulders with one man who has made his way back from his place of death at Bosworth Field to discover the truth about the disappearance of his famous nephews.

Amidst the chaos of daily life, with political and personal tensions running high, Richard III takes control, as each ghostly resident looks for their own peace in the former palace – where privacy was always a limited luxury.

With so many characters haunting the Tower of London, will they all find the calm they crave? But foremost – will the young Plantagenet Princes join them?

About Jennifer Wilson:

Jennifer is a marine biologist by training, who developed an equal passion for history whilst stalking Mary, Queen of Scots of childhood holidays (she has since moved on to Richard III). She completed her BSc and MSc at the University of Hull, and has worked as a marine environmental consultant since graduating.


Enrolling on an adult education workshop on her return to the north-east reignited Jennifer’s pastime of creative writing, and she has been filling notebooks ever since.
