Sammy Winward – Princess Phoebe Meets the Tudors
You would recognise the name Sammy Winward if you are a soap fan then from the credits on the Yorkshire based soap of Emmerdale, as Katie Sudden, but she left the soap after, her character had a dramatic accident in early February this year.
Sammy maintains as if she hadn’t pursued a career in acting she would have been a historian. Her love of history comes through in her first children’s book ‘Princess Phoebe Meets the Tudors’ where the main character Phoebe meets some of the wives of Henry VIII & finds out that being a Princess isn’t just about beautiful handbags, glittery high-heeled shoes & sparkly dresses.
She finds a magic book whilst tidying up her mothers dresses after playing dress up. The book whisks her through time to explore the lives of the Tudor Queen’s Anne Boleyn, Jane Grey, Mary I and Elizabeth I. The book is factually correct, but shows, what could have been, the interaction between the four ladies. Hopefully we will read more about Princess Phoebe’s adventures in future books by Sammy Winward.
The character of Princess Phoebe is dedicated to Sammy’s own real-life princess – her ten-year-old daughter, Mia, who is following in her mother’s footsteps with a love of history.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Eric Heyman & published by Candy Jar Books, it retails at £6.99 & aimed at children from the age of 8 upwards & can be purchased from Amazon, Waterstones or other book sellers.
