Margaret Martin

Margaret Martin is an Australian-born historian with a life-long interest in the Tudor and Stuart monarchies. In her intriguing novel Arbella's Baby, she explores dark corners of the Court of Star Chamber with an assurance that recalls Umberto's Eco's masterpiece The Name of the Rose. The epigraph to Margaret Martin's novel - 'To those in the British Museum Reading Room, that summer' - is a reminder of the many hours of meticulous research that underlie the author's compelling 'Jacobean mystery'.
