Katherine’s WVIA Interview

This video interview was filmed by the folks at WVIA, on Jan 15, 2013.  In this far-ranging discussion, Katherine and host Erika Funke talk about her newest work as well the genesis of the project that became the Montfort series.  She is able to offer some context for how the book became something different from a historical novel: a form that bridges careful research with reasoned conjecture in order to explain some of the contradictions she encountered working with 13th-century source material.  A great introduction to her approach and to Simon’s story.
