Kelly Evans – Author

Hello and welcome! You’ve opened the door, now step inside and visit the past with me.

A little about me: I started writing in high school and have always been fascinated by history, eventually earning a degree in the subject. The merging of the two came naturally when I started writing full time a few years ago. I live in a small cozy house in Canada but spent 20 years of my life living in (and loving) England.

In my alternate identity as Lady Matilda, I post satirical articles on managing your medieval manor during the Black Death (Read them Here)

My novella Stubborn: A Greek Comedy is now available! Why re-write an ancient Greek play? Why the hell not! The themes are spookily relevant to today and there’s nothing like Greek comedy (and the never-ending sexual innuendos!) to keep serious topics light.

My latest historical fiction novel, Unfinished: The Inspired Life of Elisabetta Sirani, is also available. It tells the the tragic story of Maestra Sirani, a Seventeenth-Century artist who died young of a mysterious illness. I’m currently researching my next novel about the life of Caterina Sforza.

  1. Hi Kelly, just wondered if there are plans to release your book for kindle? Or will it remain as a book?
    (Will your book remain a book? Sounds stupid, but you know what I mean ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    1. Hi Andy, yes, it will be out in kindle format, hopefully in a few weeks!

      1. Okay, if I don’t spot it on the Nordland site will you let me know please. I’m fighting a losing battle with my wife to reduce books and save space! So I tend to get most fiction on my kindle. But your book does look cool, though.Congratulations.

      2. Thank you, so does yours! There’ll def be an announcement of some sort, I’m getting good at this marketing thing!

      3. Good practice for your next one. Will there be a next one? No-don’t tell me! I’ll read it myself ๐Ÿ™‚

      4. Actually, you can’t tell from the current one but yes, I’m working on book two. It starts about a year after the current one.

      1. Thank you Kelly, will order it on the UK site. Look forward to reading it!

  2. Hi Kelly, just finished reading your book and loved it. Very impressed. Left a review on Goodreads and Amazon UK. Look forward to the next one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you SO much, I’m glad you enjoyed it! And working on the next one!!

        I wonder whatever happened to that crate of vintage port that Max was supposed to enjoy on or about his 21st birthday ?

  4. Hi! I enjoy connecting with ither authors and fellow bloggers. My blog and podcast features indie writers, authors, & poets. Love the concept of your books combining history and horror. Look forward to reading your newsletter.

    1. Hello there! I’m so impressed by people with blogs, I learned early on I just didn’t have the discipline to do one. AND a podcast? man, you must have no time to yourself! Thank you for connecting with me, I also love meeting other authors and history fans!
