Hello Everyone

Post by rebecca » Sun July 17th, 2011, 6:11 am

Hello Everyone :)
as to be expected I love historical fiction and found this site by reading the acknowledgments in one of Elizabeth Chadwick books. I am passionate about books and am rather eclectic in my reading choices. I have just finished 'Lady of the English(loved it!)' :D and am now scratching my head as to what to choose next :confused: from my large TBR list from Joanna Trollope to Margaret George or Susan Higginbotham and Anne Easter Smith. Ah dear, decisions-decisions. :rolleyes:
I hope one day to publish my own novel but it is still a work in progress.
I live in a very wintry Adelaide(Australia) but am not complaining-I love the cold.
Best wishes to everyone
Bec --PS: I am a bit of a dumb cluck when it comes to computers so hope I post this correctly.

Welcome, Rebecca! There are several here who are a bit green with envy that you have Lady of the English and finished it. (I am counting the days...) Is that the first Chadwick you've read? If not, there are many more that await you! The Greatest Knight is the first of the Marshall books, for a start.
