"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

Dec 18, 2019


Not many days left in this year of 2019, a happy and a productive and a busy one.

It concludes with--

seasonal decorating . . . 

From my novels: Hedy, Duchess Diana, her Duke, his parents, Nell Gwyn & Charles II

Lady Mandolinist, purchased weeks ago in London

 . . . and baking . . .

Lebkuchen...complicated, but worth the effort!

. . . and concerts . . . 

Handel's Messiah

. . . and watching dogs play in snow! Lots of snow.

The social calendar is very full, and I'm fitting revisions and planning for our own annual caroling party into these short winter days.

Sending my very best wishes for a wonderful festive season to all, and a brilliant 2020!
