Authentic First Novel About the Cathars in the Aude and Ariege
I live near Quillan in the Aude and have a fascination for the Cathars who lived in my area and the Ariège during the 13th and 14th centuries. I have just written my first novel about them, in particular about the villainous priest of the village of Montaillou in the Pyrenees. My characters are all authentic and refreshingly not kings and queens or other toffs. Definitely different.
