Former “Emmerdale” star Sammy Winward is turning author and releasing a history book for children.
The actress, known for playing Katie Sugden on the ITV soap between 2001 and 2015, will release “Princess Phoebe Meets the Tudors”, reported Digital Spy.
A summary of the book on Amazon read: “In Princess Phoebe Meets the Tudors, Sammy Winward presents a historically accurate snapshot of Tudor princesses, accessible to younger readers. “The book presents female characters as strong and self-aware, balanced with the awfulness of Tudor life.”
Meanwhile, Winward’s exit from “Emmerdale” aired earlier this year. Winward was also recently cast in the second series of ITV’s “Prey”. She will be playing Emma, the heavily pregnant daughter of a prison officer, in the three-part drama series.
