I'm still in Elizabethan London, and now also running a guest-house in a Welsh village.

This afternoon, I was in Egypt learning about pyramids.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

England, though the time period changes.

Nowhere. I've just bailed on Bring up the Bodies. 'He Cromwell' was doing my head in. I may pick it up again later when I'm more in the mood. I suspect a case of the reading blahs so I'm going to read my cookery books instead!

Still splitting time between pre-Norman England, the Arkansas Ozarks, and a magical library full of warrior dragons.

Had to Google that one :o

I love stepbacks, there's even a group at goodreads dedicated to hunting them down and storing in a photo gallery.
