I was born in Leicester, England, and lived in our cobbler’s shop with my parents and sister. It was an old house and most definitely haunted, but I didn’t find out until I left that my great uncle had hung himself in the living room! But I think our ghost might have been older than that. It was built on the site of the old Roman cemetery, and the land had been constantly inhabited, being in the centre of town. Then, when the council bought the house from us to build a road, my grandfather retired and my father went and worked for the Post Office. My mother was a sample machinist; that is, she worked with designers on the prototypes (models or samples) of garments. So I was very well dressed!

June has come in beautifully here. The sun is out, the cats are prowling, and I’m indoors looking at it all, writing. It could be worse!Politics are steaming ahead either side of the Atlantic, the Europe vote over here garnering hysteria on both sides, and the Presidential campaign in the US. When the sun comes out it doesn’t seem to be so important!So, here’s the news, and you’re the first... Read more of this blog post »

I wanted to enjoy this, but the book was historically inaccurate, and with far too many typos and anachronisms. It is badly in need of a professional edit, and fact-checking. It has one editor and a proof reader credited, but even then quite a lot of ...more

Lynne Connolly made a comment on Bye bye Office!
" Thank you! I do have LibreOffice installed, and it's very good, though not my eventual winner! "
" I'd read the Paston Letters. "

“Never judge yourself by the narrow
standards of others. What we do together here is our
business, nobody else's. Never, never doubt what we have

accept or condemn. Please promise me that.”

“Impossible. But you know I'm there in spirit. In the middle of a ball, at the theater or even at court I'm here, inside you. Where I belong.”
