Hi, after years of reading historical fiction I am now trying my hand at writing thrillers set in Georgian and Victorian times.

Hi there. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your writing.

I'm also in London.

If you're a historical fiction aficionado based in London, you may be interested in one or both of the groups mentioned in my signature. Feel free to drop me a line.

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.

Thanks to all. Currently my favourite writer of historical fiction is Julian Rathbone a much under-rated writer.

Hi Everyone, I love The Eagle series by Simon Scarrow and have been inspired to write my own historical fiction novel set in Roman Britain. Oops! A novice on the site - I've now started a new thread - apologies, I'll improve!!
