Hello from Yorkshire

Post by Lindsey » Thu January 8th, 2009, 4:48 pm

Hello everyone, I just thought I would pop in and say hi. I am a huge fan of historical fiction of any kind and started reading historical novels when my mum gave me some very old copies of Norah Lofts' 'House' trilogy. My favourite historical period is medieval/Plantagenet England, but history of any kind intrigues me. I enjoy reading all types of books but think historical fiction is my favourite genre. Looking forward to exploring this site more.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi Lindsey! I like medieval too, but my particular period is the global renaissance, preferably a little farther afield than Tudor England.
