Answer: Alison Weir. Weir is the author of at least 15 published works both non-fiction (history) as well as historical fiction. If you have ever been interested in reading about the monarchs of England she is an author worth reading. Her books are so well written and research that you will find yourself craving more by the end of a book. Her most recent book is The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn . Her next book will be released in the United States in October and is titled Mary Boleyn: The Mistress of Kings (both are non-fiction and sure to be excellent reads).
