Hi, I’m Stephanie Churchill, author of The Scribe’s Daughter, and welcome to my website!

What kind of book is The Scribe’s Daughter?  I like to describe it as “fantasy that reads like historical fiction.”  Why? Because as author Elizabeth Chadwick put it, the novel has echoes of being historical without containing any actual history.  Or as author Sharon Kay Penman said of it, the book “could be easily rooted in the Middle Ages but isn’t.”  The best way to find out whether the book is for you is to try out an excerpt of the first chapter here.


See what Discovering Diamonds, a site for independent reviews of the best in historical fiction, has to say about The Scribe’s Daughter:

The Scribe’s Daughter is an incredible first novel, well polished and well presented, an excellent example of independent, self publishing.”

“The first person narrative flows beautifully, so beautifully that when reading it I forgot it was an indie book and I forgot it was a review book, and not one I picked up for myself. ”

“If you like George R.R. Martin and Sarah J. Maas, this is absolutely for you. Definitely a  brilliant diamond of a discovery!”
