A to Z Challenge: M is for Medina

ANNE & HENRY isn't set in England—though, the temptation was certainly there. 

Instead, my contemporary re-telling of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII's torrid romance is set in Medina, Washington, a picturesque REAL town bordering Lake Washington, and the home of Bill Gates.

I've never been to Medina, but the pictures of the area are beautiful, there are cameras that record who enters and exits the town (hello, Big Brother!), and the houses are gorgeous. 

Aside from the scenery, most of MY Medina is made up—from the Tudor mansion where Anne and Henry first meet to Medina Academy, where the teens go to school, and Henry reigns as Student Council President. There's also an abandoned theatre, a Mom & Pop style diner, and a great coffee shop where I wish I could hang out and write in.

For more about the REAL, picturesque Medina, check out this link.

Back tomorrow with a more traditional Tudor-inspired "N" but in the meantime, check out the rest of the blogs on A to Z Challenge—you can find the list here

About my YA Contemporary, ANNE & HENRY—coming from Simon Pulse, Sept. 1, 2015.


Wild, brazen, mischievous, bewitching
Driven, haunted, charming, magnetic

Apart, they are bound to destroy themselves. Together, they are bound to destroy each other.

Henry Tudor's life has been mapped out since the day he was born: student president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father's. But ever since the death of Henry's brother—perfect, high-achieving Arthur—his family has been twice as demanding. And now Henry's trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who's not Tudor approved.

Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.

Anne is wild, brash and outspoken. She is everything Henry is not allowed to be—or to want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, yet his desire for Anne consumes him. Henry is willing to do anything to be with her. But once he has her, their romance could destroy them both.

Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, Anne & Henry reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time.
