"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Opening Up 2013

Activities connected with my alternate alter ego have been incredibly time consuming this very productive winter. A great deal of snow has kept me mostly at home, indoors, and tied to the computer!

I'm dividing my attention between the 17th and the 18th centuries lately...at Valentine's Day I produced a romance novella set in North Wales and Chester, home to other paternal ancestors (different ones than these.)

I recently provided a guest blog for fellow historical fiction author Anita Davison/Seymour.

I'm hoping to wear 17th century dress for this year's Historical Novel Society conference. Meaning I shall be attempting to devise something resembling a fontange, as worn here by the Queen and the Duchess.

I've already got my vizard!
