Howdy! from Texas, USA

Post by Ann Eliza » Tue November 22nd, 2011, 12:22 am

Hi, everyone!

I'm a lover of history who has fallen into the embrace of the imagined past ... and am thrilled and thankful to discover this forum :)

My most recent reads in this amazing genre have been When Christ and His Saints Slept, by Sharon Kay Penman, and, Reindeer Moon, by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas. Years ago (like lots of other folks!), I read Jean M. Auel's The Clan of the Cave Bear, and am beginning it again so as to continue through the Earth's Children series. Sharon Kay Penman's Here Be Dragons is also on my bedside table :)

I look forward to 'meeting' everyone, discovering new authors and sharing our journeys through literary portals in time!

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.
