I have been fascinated by history for over 30 years now. I have studied history academically and just for fun – I’ve even worked as a tour guide at historical sites.
I’m now having great fun, passing on my love of the past to my 10-year-old son. We like nothing better, during the school holidays, than hunting dragons through Medieval castles or exploring the hidden alcoves of Tudor Manor Houses. He is fantastic at identifying bread ovens, spotting fireplaces and the defensive features of most castles.
I have always said I would really like to write about history, but there was always something else that needed doing.
But then, for Christmas 2014, my husband gave me my very own blog – and I haven’t looked back. As I love researching and writing those stories that have made history so exciting to me the blog has given me the chance to share what I love – the stories themselves, and the places they happened – in the hope that you do too.
And in 2016 things have got even more exciting. I am so happy to say that I have just starting writing my first book, Heroines of the Medieval World, which will be published by Amberley in 2017.
