A. L. Berridge worked as a teacher, a script editor, and a television producer before finally settling down as a full-time novelist. She inherited her love of history from her father, writer and Victorian specialist David Newsome, but her own passion is for military adventure, and the character and relationships of men at war. She is published by Penguin.
Her first novel, the epic Honour and the Sword, was published in April 2010 and became an instant Sunday Times Bestseller. Set during the Thirty Years War, it follows the adventures of André, the young Chevalier de Roland, as he fights to survive the 1636 Spanish invasion of Picardy.
A L Berridge recommends
The Maid (2011)
"Joan of Arc has been depicted as a heroine, a victim, a witch and a saint, but Kimberly Cutter makes of her a heartbreakingly real human being."
