Hi,

Just discovered this forum, and thought it looked friendly and interesting. Historical fiction is something I've been getting interested in during the last 12-18 months...before that, it wasn't something I'd have fancied, but now I am a convert!

Looking forward to finding my way around and meeting you all :)
