Catherine’s interest in medieval history began at the age of 8 when she was given her first book on medieval knights and castles. From that young age, she was keen to learn more about medieval buildings and the lives of those who lived in and around them. This passion led her to complete her doctoral degree from Trinity College, Oxford, on the fortifications of English Gascony at the end of the Hundred Years War, and subsequently gave root to the creation of  The Maid of Gascony series of which The Templar’s Garden, Queen of Heaven and Like as the Hart are a part.
