Synopsis

Mary Queen of Scots and All That by Alan Burnett

Mary, Queen of Scots and All That is packed with historical facts about Scotland's headless heroine. Follow hot-blooded Mary's lifelong rivalry with her frosty cousin, Queen Elizabeth I of England - and discover why the Queen of Scots gets her head chopped off. Start at the beginning by finding out how well Mary gets on with her pushy Mum, her ladies-in-waiting and her first boyfriend. Work out why she is hated by Nasty Knox the preacher and his Edinburgh mob. Meet Mary's horrible husbands and understand what makes her marry them. Solve the mysterious murders of her nearest and dearest. Learn the truth about Mary's madness. Uncover the secret plots that earn the Queen of Scots a deadly date with her cousin's executioner - and decide for yourself whether Mary is guilty or innocent.

About the Author

Alan Burnett

Allan Burnett writes books for children and adults including the acclaimed And All That series of blood-spattered historical biographies; World War 2: Scottish Tales of Adventure based on Allan's first-hand interviews; and Invented In Scotland. He contributes to a number of newspapers and magazines, having worked as a writer, features commissioning editor and deputy foreign editor at The Herald and Sunday Herald group.

Allan was born and brought up in the Western Isles, and educated at the University of Edinburgh. By night working as a caped ghost-tour guide, by day he earned a distinction for his postgraduate thesis on constitutional history and literature. These days he gets dressed up as a rogue medieval courtier or imprisoned U-Boat officer, among other guises, to tell Scottish history tales and create literacy projects with heritage sites and schools. He lives in Glasgow with his wife and daughter.
