Wife After Wife

Publishing JANUARY 2020

A wickedly entertaining and utterly absorbing modern take on the life and marriages of Henry VIII … if he were a twenty-first-century womanising media mogul rather than the King of England.

Master of the universe Harry Rose is head of the Rose Corporation, number eighteen on the Forbes rich list, and recently married to wife number six. But in 2018, his perfect world is about to come crashing to the ground. His business is in the spotlight – and not in a good way – and his love life is under scrutiny. Because behind a glittering curtain of lavish parties, gorgeous homes, and a media empire is a tale worthy of any tabloid.

And Harry has a lot to account for.

This will delight both Tudorphiles and readers who love a dishy tellall about rich people behaving badly.” – Booklist (American Library Association, Book Reviews)

Praise for Wife After Wife 

 

“You don’t have to be a Tudor aficionado to adore Wife After Wife, however, those in the know will be especially delighted with this modern-day retelling of the six wives of Henry VIII. For all others, Hayfield’s clever novel is a delicious read for anyone looking to sink into a big juicy story about love, lust, betrayal and other unfortunate consequences of the heart.”

About Olivia Hayfield

Welcome, readers!

I’m Olivia Hayfield, author of modern retellings of historical tales. 

I live in the beautiful subtropical city of Auckland, New Zealand, where you’re never more than ten minutes from a beach. Great reason to live here, I thought, when I moved here from England with my husband. But we missed England – a lot. So now we divide our time, as they say, which means missing grim English winters and relentlessly wet Auckland ones. I can recommend this as a lifestyle.

English history and culture inspire my writing, and I like to adopt the ‘full immersion’ method, which means spending time in historic hotspots and London locations (particularly cafes and pubs). I can recommend this as a writing routine.

When not editing (my day job) or writing (most other waking minutes), I usually have my nose stuck in a history book, whether that’s fiction or non-fiction. I’m an enormous fan of Philippa Gregory, Alison Weir and Antonia Fraser – I read male authors’ takes on history too, of course, but I enjoy the insight of female writers when it comes to historical characters and their relationships. And then I spend many an hour wondering what those characters would be like if they lived today. 

If you’d like news on my books, events, or just chit chat about my writing life, then please do sign up to my newsletter. I aim to make it fun, engaging, and brief!

A final word … between us, Olivia is, in fact, a pseudonym. Like her characters, she is a reimagined version of the truth. If you were after that other author (older, less glamorous, not nearly as much fun), the one who writes children’s books and is also a book editor, you can visit her at www.suecopsey.com
