I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that I've once again signed with the amazing team at Pen & Sword. This time I'm going to be writing a biography on the fascinating Elizabeth (Erzébet) Báthory. Many associate her name with mass murder and vampirism, but I want to bring her story back to the fore - did she actually kill that many girls and women? Where do the rumours of vampirism come from? Was there anything else behind her spectacular downfall? I'll also be looking into her perception today and how she is shown in music, film and fiction.

Báthory will also be making an appearance in my upcoming "The Most Maligned Women in History" book, so you'll be able to get a little taste of her before work begins on this project.

Safe to say the next few years are going to be exceptionally busy with the projects I'm working on. This project won't be released into the world until some point in 2026, so there's a bit of a wait. HOWEVER, I do have other books coming before that.

The Most Maligned Women in History - 2024

The History of Resident Evil - 2025

If you have a spare few minutes, I was also on the History Hack podcast talking about Savonarola, and my latest book "The Pope's Greatest Adversary"
