From the list on Rasputin and his Russian queen.
Who am I?
I can’t explain the fascination with Rasputin, but one hears the name so frequently via the Boney M pop song, so I took that as the inspiration - and the title - of my book. I saw a book about him in Waterstones one day and had to pick it up, even though it was so big it might’ve doubled as a doorstop. But from then I was hooked; I read everything I could, watched more, and researched until I actually went to Russia. And then I research some more!
Mickey's book list on Rasputin and his Russian queen
Why did Mickey love this book?
This was the book that inspired me to visit Russia, while researching Rasputin and the Romanovs, and then to write my own take on the relationship between Rasputin and Alexandra.
It’s a great book but hard-going for a novice, but I like to dive in at the deep end.
