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.

The Heretic’s Daughter tag line

I attended a great workshop last night with Gerry Bartlett on tag lines.

For The Heretic’s Daughter:

A medieval heiress faces church censorship to become a doctor but her biggest obstacle is the king’s insistence she marry a mercenary.
