I'm a new member/reader that found this site recommended on another location. My name is Cheryl but on forums I use hanna52 so I have less to remember! I love reading H/F and Dorothy Dunnett is my favorite author in this genre although I love many others too. :)

Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
