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)

Picking Roses: A Story of Elizabeth Ollive Paine

It’s been a while since I shared any of my own writing on my blog, so today I thought I would do just that. I wrote the story below for a magazine submission slot, the brief for which was to write a short piece of fiction in the voice of a female relation to a famous real or fictional person. My piece was not ultimately selected; nonetheless, I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
