Welcome, Queen Mab! This is great place to hang out, lots of friendly people. BTW, Chicago is one of my favorite cities. My hubby grew up there and we go back occasionally.

Hi Queen Mab,
Welcome to the forum. My first ever attempt at writing was a Tudor novel and it made me cringe too!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Nice to find myelf in an area for one of my favorite genres. I actually notice some people from the historical boards at Amazon writing here as well. I recently was told about this area but it will take a while for me to learn the ropes. For now I will say I am a retired teacher who lives in NJ. My all time favorite thing to do - when I'm not with my family or friends - is to read. I always said as an only child books were my best friends. My other interests are knitting, playing tennis, watching old movies and trying to learn to crochet. I am married to the same man for 40 years and have one daughter who recently was married.

Among my favorite historical books are the old timers like Gone With the Wind,etc. I also loved Katherine by Anya Seton, Green Darkness by Anya Seton, The Source by James Michener and The Drifters by Michener which may not qualify as historical fiction. I alos love saga books by authors like Susan Howatch and Jeffrey Archer. I love time travel books although I found the Gabaldon books too wordy. One of my fave older books was Desiree which I recently bought to reread someday.... I also enjoy books about the Tudors and adored the recent series on Showtime.

I look forward to meeting many of you here and reading your suggestions.
