About Jessica Trapp

When I become Evil Queen of the Galaxy, exercise will be fun, afternoon naps will be mandatory, and laundry will be illegal. In the meantime I write medieval novels with alpha heros and defiant heroines. I love romance, castles and books.

Why is a football called a pigskin?

In the middle ages, football season started in November. That’s when the pigs were slaughtered. The kids took pigs’ bladders and filled them with peas to make footballs.

I love audiobooks!

Listening to Veil of Lies by Jeri Westerson in the car today. Great book! A very entertaining read and a fabulous narrator. Audio books sure makes sitting in traffic more pleasant. Veil of Lies by Jeri Westerson

November

Joe and I love to lay in front of our easy, low maintenance gas fireplace, but in the medieval world, November was often a month of gathering firewood to provide warmth during the winter. I love the scent of a wood fire.

Summer in Scotland

Fall is in full swing now, but this year had a fantastic summer. We spent three weeks in Scotland hiking, exploring castles and wandering through museums doing research for my upcoming trilogy. Such inspiration! The first book in the series, The Heretic’s Daughter is nearly complete. Heading to Starbucks this morning to do revisions. I love to travel and it’s nice to be home.
