About Brian Wainwright
Brian Wainwright was born in 1953, in Manchester, England, and apart from a very short time in his twenties has always lived there or thereabouts. He is fascinated (if not quite obsessed) by the Middle Ages, and all his books, so far, have had medieval settings. He writes both humorous fiction (for example The Adventures of Alianore Audley) and serious historical fiction (for example Within the Fetterlock).
Brian's main interest is in the House of York, particularly its earlier years. He is currently writing a prequel to Within the Fetterlock, provisionally titled This New Spring of Time. This will deal with Constance of York's early life and the dramatic politics which surrounded it.
There are several other projects on the stocks including a second "Alianore" book and a serious novel about the later Yorkist era, which will feature, but not be centred on, Richard III.
