I don’t want to compile a list of all authors who write/wrote historical fiction – just those I have read and those I feel I ought to read.

I haven’t actually read a lot of historical fiction.  These are the authors I remember having read:

  • Sue Barnard
  • Tracy Chevalier
  • Vanessa Couchman
  • Philippa Gregory
  • Carol Hedges
  • Gill James
  • Nancy Jardine
  • Pamela Melnikoff
  • David Rory O’Neill
  • D. B. Schaefer
  • Rosemary Sutcliff (It’s not her fault that her book put me off ancient history for decades!)

Which other authors should I read now? Any recommendations?
