Collection: Emma Batten

Author of Historical Fiction set on Kent's Romney Marsh.
Romney Marsh is a fascinating place. Once under the sea, it has evolved over the last two millennia to be the low-lying land we see today. The countryside can be bleak, but reed-lined drainage ditches and red-berried hawthorn have their own special beauty. The seaside villages can easily be dismissed if you look no further than the arcades and ice-cream shops, but they have a colourful history. And then there is the shingle spit at Dungeness: a truly unique landscape favoured by artists, film-makers and writers.

What about the people who used to live there? We can only imagine what their lives were like.

My stories take readers from the 13th century, when a great storm destroyed the coastline and a river changed course overnight, through to life in Victorian and 1920s Dungeness. Although predominantly fiction, I work very hard to give readers an accurate sense of Romney Marsh through the ages and do a lot of research.
