Bewitched, Bothered and Beheaded

Tara K. Reed is hard at work on her next series, BEWITCHED, BOTHERED AND BEHEADED – an illustrated interactive alternative history series featuring medieval queens. The reader can experience both a queen’s true story and, through reader-dictated choices, divergent paths that effectively change her life and history as we know it. The first book features Katherine of Aragon, the first wife of King Henry VIII, and one third of history’s most infamous love triangle.


Potential twists include:

  • How Katherine handles the consummation of her marriage to Prince Arthur.
  • Prince Arthur lives, preventing the rule of Henry VIII.
  • When Prince Arthur dies, Katherine’s parents opt not to wed her to Henry Tudor.
  • Katherine encourages Henry VIII to legitimize his son, Henry Fitzroy, to satisfy his need for a male heir and hopefully neutralize Anne Boleyn in the process.
  • Katherine sanctions the invasion of England by her nephew, Charles the Holy Roman Emperor, to secure both her daughter Mary’s place in the succession and Roman Catholicism’s place in England.


Future titles will feature the following queens:

  • Anne Boleyn
  • Jane Seymour
  • Anne of Cleves
  • Catherine Howard
  • Katherine Parr
  • Elizabeth I
  • Mary Queen of Scots
