Hi! I'm Christy. I've been a fan of historical fiction for about a year now. My major historical loves are anything from the Georgian era to about the 1940s, but I love a good story set before all that, as well. I'm also a history buff and love reading about American and European history, along with reading biographies and classic literature.

I have a book blog: Christy's Book Blog. Let me know if you have one. I love following historical fiction blogs.

Can't wait to start posting. :D
