The French have just retaken Calais from the British and our hero is preparing to take the keys to the city to Henri II.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite 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.

I'm about to embark on a career of piracy on the Spanish main, flaunting the peace treaty our craven King James I signed with Philip III.
my facebook posts https://www.facebook.com/emilylaurencotton are public, generally things I find amusing.
my passions: fair trade, ending slavery, and justice.

I am in Egypt during WWI. Whilst there are many soldiers in town, I am, as usual, far more interested in pyramids and other archeologically minded subjects. Well, except for the odd mystery that comes my way.

I am in Normandy in the 1120's to 30's, finding out that prior to 1135 Stephen of Blois was well ahead in his plans to claim England and Normandy should Henry I die.

I'm somewhere in England in 1348 in an old widow's inn (well, it used to be an inn) with nine very unusual people wondering what will happen next.

I've just been in the middle of an Arab uprising with Dorian Courtney or "el salil" as he is now known after being kidnapped by Arabs, sold to a Prince and being adopted as his son.
