Real name, Jo Barnden, this historical author has long been on a mission to explore the female stories that have been pushed  into the shadows of history. Join Jo in conversation as she talks about how women throughout the ages have done amazing,  often unnoticed things, and how much fun it is writing about them!


As Anna Stuart, Jo has written the Midwife of Auschwitz and the Midwife of Berlin. As Joanna Courtney she has written the Queens of Conquest and Shakespeare’s Queens series as well as latest novel Cleopatra and Julius.
