I'm quite taken with the idea, so might actually go see this. Alisha, I live in a similar area, and the WRITERS around here get so obsessive about writing about where we live I actually went to the extent of putting a disclaimer to Southern Novelist-osity in my bio. That said, sometimes American his...

Lillie is my ultimate girlie watch - ahh, the scene where Oscar trembles and says "One day, you and I will commit a great folly" ... of course, I like it because Peter Egan is such a crush of mine, but there you go. *Grin* Greg, thank you so much! Childeric is actually the father of my MC, Clovis th...

I know this is a rather inactive thread, but I love bricks as a collectible. In my research for the novel I'm querying, since there were so few primary sources, I researched everything from breeds of horses to pattern welding steel ... to bricks. I have a special place in my heart for bricks; my fat...

Hi, Madeleine - thank you! parthianbow, I hope you'll have reason to thank *me*. fljustice, I like the idea that lack of direct sources makes for "latitude" ... :) In the midst of the writing, it felt more like a lack of direction more than once - but then I do seem to have produced a hefty stack of...

... and now I am wondering who could write the alternative history in which the Queen Mum lost hers ... ... and of course, I'm hating myself, because - what a perfectly reprehensible thought. I blame Helena. She lends herself to that sort of ghoulishness! (And I mean that as if it were a compliment.)

Heh - Ludmilla, these days, they call me a Senior Administration Specialist, which I have to say I like very much. I'm extremely blessed, and happy, in my job and my team. I'd been laid off a year ago March 31, so the new gig is still fresh, but I'm working hard to fool them into thinking I am indis...

I finally reached "Pillars of the Earth" on my Netflix qeue and am enjoying it very much. Makes me want to buy the TV series "Kings" which I found to be easily the most interesting thing to make broadcast, perhaps ever. I've also been alternating the recently-acquired third season of "Big Bang Theor...

Hello, MLE - his historicals aren't the newest things on the shelves, but they are lovely, and Memory is easily my favorite. Oddly, he also did some comedic science fiction (which I also very much enjoy), but the works are extraordinarily unalike. His historicals are deeply textured, can be quite br...

Hello

It feels a bit presumptuous to start a thread meant to be All About Me, but as that appears to be the way it's done in these 'yere parts, I do want to introduce myself. So here we go. Historical fiction has been my favorite entertainment, in whatever its medium, since before I knew what it was. At t...
