Thanks for visiting my website! I'm a historian specialising in Renaissance and early modern Europe and work at the University of Sheffield, UK, where I'm Lecturer in Public History.
My book Our Man in Rome, about Henry VIII’s last ambassador to the papal court, Gregorio Casali, tells the inside story of Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon from the ambassador's point of view. It came out in paperback on 7 February 2013 retitled The Divorce of Henry VIII... go to the Our Man in Rome page to read more - NOW UPDATED with a full round-up of blog reviews.
My new project is a biography of Alessandro de' Medici for which I begin research in summer 2013.
