About Ann Marie Thomas

Writing poetry and making up stories since she was a child, Ann only started to write seriously when her children were grown. Her main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way she got fascinated by local history and distracted by a major stroke. However, she wrote poetry about her stroke and spent her recovery writing a local history book. Taking early retirement gave her more time to concentrate on her writing.

The result is two exciting new books about little-known pieces of Swansea and Gower history:

What began with a curiosity about the heyday of Swansea Castle, resulted in Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, the only book about Alina de Breos and the part that Swansea and Gower played in the toppling of Edward II from the throne.

Now there is a second book, set a century before the first. This tells the story of how King John's brutal treatment of William de Breos, Lord of Gower and a lot more beside, led to rebellion by many of the great barons and was the final spark that lit the fire of Magna Carta.
