About Christy

After years of acting in Shakespeare’s plays, I’ve been delighted to bring the Bard to Regency England in my historical romances HOW TO TAME A WILLFUL WIFE, a re-telling of The Taming of the Shrew, LOVE ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT, and my latest, MUCH ADO ABOUT JACK.


Praise for my first novel THE QUEEN’S PAWN:

“An astonishing debut! Christy English spins an unforgettable tale of dangerous splendor, evoking the stone and tapestry of the Plantagenet era, and the fierce rivalry of two equally fascinating and determined women, whose ambitions threaten to overturn their world.”

C.W. Gortner, author of THE QUEEN’S VOW




Praise for TO BE QUEEN: A Novel of the Early Life of Eleanor of Aquitaine

4 stars “…few authors have presented as intimate a portrait of [Eleanor’s] early years and disastrous first marriage as English has… a finely wrought picture of an empowered woman… ”  –Romantic Times Book Reviews

“… one of the best written and captivating historical fiction novels of the year… “To Be Queen” is a historical fiction novel you will not want to miss!” –Pittsburgh Historical Fiction Examiner
