Doug Moe: Historical novelist to lead tour of England

The best thing that could happen to Margaret George in October would be for her to round a corner in Kimbolton Castle and find herself face to face with the ghost of Catherine of Aragon.

Catherine, who died in 1536 and is said to haunt the castle north of London, was once married to Henry VIII, making her a member of a not-very-exclusive club.

More than a quarter-century ago, alone in a room in her Madison home, George wrote a novel, her first, in the voice of Henry VIII. It created a sensation in England and was a best-seller in the United States as well.
