Welcome to my Blog.

This is all rather new to me, so bear with me while I try and get things right!

I have always been interested in history but my horizons have broadened since I began working for Helen Hollick at Discovering Diamonds - a dedicated review site for historical fiction by, largely, Independent (Indie) authors who don't have the muscle power of mainstream publishers behind them. It is these authors that I hope to promote and highlight on these pages.

What I hope to  do is present to you interviews with some of those authors who's books have thrilled and excited me.

Also featured will be photographs that I have taken  of various historical places I have visited, and some of my own scribblings - short stories, articles and some extracts from my own WIPs.
I hope you enjoy having a look around and that you will come back often to find out what is new. Please don't hesitate to comment or contact me (Note: I haven't yet worked out how to get a comments box under each new article, so until then, you will find it at the bottom of the page). I plan to update about 3 times a week, so if you would like to keep up to date,  please 'follow' me. Besides, it does my ego good!
