Heritage

Chloë tells the stories that nearly died. Suppressed by Puritans, bowdlerised by Victorians. Chloë’s versions are told in age appropriate style yet go back to the roots of British lore: not always ‘nice’, not always happily ever after.
 
She makes fiction vivid with historical fact. This storyteller has worn chain mail, wielded a sword, ridden over hill and dale, and taunted defenders on the battlements.
 
Her high energy style delights all ages. Story summaries in French or German help engage overseas visitors.
