Hello and many thanks for visiting my website. I love story-telling, especially if it involves history. My grounding was at Oxford University where I read Modern History and I have a Masters with distinction in Imperialism and Culture. I’ve presented numerous history documentaries and this summer my broadcasting work includes the next two series of BBC2’s Coast and Radio 4’s Crossing Continents.

I am currently writing an historical biography about an extraordinary World War I heroine: Marie - English Princess, Romanian Queen. Her remarkable life combines the two great passions in mine – modern history and Romania. My first book published by Quartet Books was out in May 2012; a memoir, 'To Romania With Love', is a story about a country in turmoil and finding love in the most unexpected places.

I've written for many of the national newspapers,write and perform my own lectures and have spent far too many hours presenting and contributing on the mayhem that is live radio.

Anyway I hope you find what you're looking for on this website.

All best wishes,


Tessa Dunlop
