Talk Saturday 26 August : Since her first novel, Almodis de La Marche, Tracey is now working on a biography of Almodis and two of her sisters – whose family ruled the Charroux area in the 11th century. Tracey will talk on how landscapes – in France (Tarn, Limousin, Lot, Creuse) and in Wales (Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire) have inspired her fictions (and non-fiction with the biography).
Historical Novel Panel Friday 25 August: Tracey will join a discussion about Historical Novels on Friday morning, alongside Alison Morton and James Vance. Expect intrigues, conspiracy, ideas, and we hope, much laughter.
Tracey Warr’s three historical novels – Almodis the Peaceweaver, The Viking Hostage and Conquest: Daughter of the Last King – are set in early medieval Europe and published by Impress Books. Her novels take inspiration from the landscapes and histories of France, England and Wales. She is currently working on a biography of Almodis de La Marche and her sisters who came from the family ruling Charroux in the 11th century. She has also published future fiction and books and essays on contemporary art. She is a writing tutor for A Chapter Away in Gascony. She divides her time between the Midi-Pyrenees region of France, Pembrokeshire in Wales and London
