Claire is the author of a load of best-selling books. They include George Boleyn, The Fall of Anne Boleyn and others. She was also involved in the English translation and editing of Edmond Bapst’s 19th century French biography of George Boleyn.
Claire’s also created the brilliant website The Anne Boleyn Files. It’s got more information that you could dare to hope for, and I’ve referred to it throughout my podcasts – and creating a mini index for a few topics. Claire worked in education and freelance writing before creating the website and becoming a full-time history researcher, blogger and author.
The Anne Boleyn Files is known for its historical accuracy and for Claire’s mission to get to the truth behind Anne Boleyn’s story. Her writing is easy-to-read and conversational, and readers often comment on how reading Claire’s books is like having a coffee with her and chatting about history.
