Shhh! I’m hiding in Sarah Jean’s Close, a public house in Hamilton in 1650. Well, not exactly.
Today, I’m a guest of the English Historical Fiction Authors Blog where I tell the story of the Battle of Hamilton, or more recently known as the Battle of Hieton. This action was fought on December 1, 1650 between Scotland’s Western Army and English Parliamentary forces during Cromwell’s invasion of Scotland. Come by for a visit. I promise you political intrigue, warfare and even a charming love story.
