Introducing myself.

Post by Annie » Fri December 5th, 2008, 8:40 am

I'm sure I'm putting this in the wrong place but I'm still blundering about this fascinating site. I am in awe of the amount everyone reads and the evident knowledge you have.
I'm a writer - Victorian, Edwardian WWl and 2. EC told me about you all. There seem to be less of us interested in those periods. Is that so or is it a case that I haven't found the rest of you with the same interests as myself?

I don't know. There are people around with all those interests, but there is definitely room for one more!

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.

Hi Annie, and welcome.
I've enjoyed novels in those periods, although I have settled on the Renaissance as my 'specialty' because I give talks to renaissance re-enactors and have to keep finding fresh material.

Hi Annie, and welcome. I've read a few WWI set novels over the years and do particularly enjoy reading about the lives and events of people during that era. Some WWII too, but not as much.
