If you’re interested in the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table and Camelot – and you live in Sydney – you’re most welcome to come along to the next meeting of the Plantagenet Society on Saturday January 21st where we’re having a Round Table discussion on ‘Are there any truths in the Arthurian legends?’ Given that these stories have been around for something like 1000 years, it’s bound to be a hotly contested topic! We meet in the Meeting Room at Hornsby Library, from 2 – 4 pm.  For more information, go to: www.members.optusnet.com.au/arablts   This is a particularly fascinating question for me, having researched the legend and visited sites associated with Arthur both in the UK and in France while writing my Shalott trilogy.  Look forward to seeing you there!


  1. I love aurthurian legends and whether or not there could be any truth in them is a freqent argument on our car trips, so please let me know what you discovered! I live in canberra so it wasn’t really possible for me to go there. Also my parents won’t get internet at home so I obviously read thisto late. Also as an aside, I love your Janna mystery books ( I have been reading and re reading them since I was ten, I am now 17) and when I went to England I actually worked out whereabouts Janna was as well as where the places she travelled to are and visited some of them!

  2. Hi Georgina,
    Thank you for your lovely message! I think the jury is still out on whether Arthur was real or just a legend. My opinion is that there was a dark age leader who waged battles and brought peace to Britain for several decades. I opened the discussion by looking at references to Arthur dating back to 500+AD and I intend to ask my webmaster to publish it on my website – so keep checking and then you’ll have some ammunition next time you argue over Arthur! And BTW if you’re interested in Arthurian legend, have you read my Shalott trilogy? On the Janna Mysteries: I’m so pleased you’ve enjoyed reading them and I hope you’ve also managed to get Books 5 & 6? I so envy you being able to visit some of those sites in the UK – I feel ‘homesick’ every time I think about them, I just loved being over there walking in Janna’s footsteps and researching her story.

      • HI Christian,
        Apologies for the tardy reply. Yes, the last two Janna Mysteries (Sage for Sanctuary and Thyme for Trust) have been published and are now available from amazon.com either as paperbacks or as e-books. I hope you enjoy finishing Janna’s quest!
