Welcome to my blog 

I like quirky historical things - odd facts and curious events - the stuff you might not learn about in school or from textbooks. I'm a life long lover of history. Yes, folks: it was my favourite subject in school, and I went on to university to obtain my B.A (Hons) in History.

So, what can you expect from this blog? I've written two historical novels in 2020, and they'll be published in early 2021. I'll tell you about these books, and I'll share with you some of the fascinating stuff I found when researching.

One novel is set in Italy during World War II; the other is just after World War I and is about a topic that has long fascinated me - spirit photography. But more about all this in future posts. I read a ton of historical fiction, and plan to do some reviews for you on this blog. I'll even talk about some long-forgotten historical novels that are well-worth hunting down and reading.

Meanwhile, isn't the header for this blog great? It's from an illustration called The Pied Piper of Hamelin, originally published in 'Dramatic Lyrics,' No. 3, 1842 in the series 'Bells and Pomegranates.'
