The Bianca Goddard Mysteries are set during the twilight years of King Henry VIII’s reign and feature the daughter of an infamous alchemist who creates medicines for the sick and poor. Commended for creating a realistic period backdrop and incorporating accurate historical detail of life in Tudor London and Southwark, the series is quickly gaining recognition and interest among historical fiction and mystery readers.

The Alchemist’s Daughter is book 1 in the series and earned Suspense Magazine’s coveted recommendation as a “Best Historical Mystery” of 2015.

In The Alchemist’s Daughter, Bianca is accused of poisoning her friend and must save herself from the gallows whilst uncovering the connection between her friend’s powerful suitor and a mysterious ship that has arrived in port. Dark and twisty, with a colourful cast of characters and language evocative of the time, enjoy being transported back to the 16th Century. Not a read for the faint of heart.
