My academic background is in history and I have always found myself looking beyond facts and dates and the formal presentation of history, trying to peer at the people and their lives, asking how they felt, how they reacted, how they became embroiled in and/or navigated the events we now read about in the history books or learn about in museums. I like to look at the sources we use to understand history, which are so often filled with bias and written by victors, and disseminate them, trying to grab at the human stories, the feuds, the character flaws, the forbidden desires which sit behind. For me, it doesn't get much more inspiring than that!(less)

For me, writing is both a creative outlet and a form of escapism. (less)

The Royal Resident of Regent Terrace

Happy new year! I hope you had an enjoyable festive season. Like probably quite a lot of people, I spent some of the holidays binge-watching TV shows, including the new BBC series, Marie Antoinette.

Whenever I watch historical dramas, I find myself googling characters or plot lines; sometimes to find out more, sometimes to establish what is based on fact and what is a pure fiction. I did this freq
