Sophy Boyle first became fascinated with the medieval era, and the Wars of the Roses in particular, when still at school, and her interest grew while studying History at Oxford.
For 18 years she enjoyed a career as a City lawyer until, in 2013, she decided to step back to devote her time to what would become Wyvern and Star, the first book in a planned series of seven Wars of the Roses novels.
Sophy lives in London with her husband and two children. Wyvern and Star is her debut novel. She is currently working on the second instalment in the Wyvern and Star series of historical novels, Jewels Beyond Price.
