[quote=""juleswatson""]Welcome, Gabriele, I replied to you on the other thread about choosing an HF period. Your books sound great, sure you'll enjoy it here a lot. Bizarrely, my third book set at the end of the Roman period in Scotland is titled "Song of the North" in the US. Great minds think alike! One thing you cannot avoid anywhere around Hadrian's Wall is the wind...[/quote]

Hi Jules, the book had started out as Storm over Hadrian's Wall as working title, but since the wall will only be built at the end of the novel, I changed the title into Song of the North Wind. You are right, wind is something you can't escape at the Wall. Or in Scotland, for that matter. :)

Now I have to finish writing those books, lol. Not the easiest part of being a writer. ;)

Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome and the kind words about my blog. I didn't know I have some many readers of those odd history bits and photos. :)

Gabriele, your thread title took me right back to school - to Latin lessons when our teacher would greet us with 'Salvete, puellae' and we had to reply 'Salve, magistra.' Unfortunately I don't now remember very much more! Anyway, welcome!

Gabriele, welcome!

I read somewhere once a definition of the 'art' (IMO, hard graft) of writing: Stare at a blank piece of paper until spots of blood pop out on your forehead.

Good luck.... :D :D
