I also find inspiration through immersing myself in the culture of the period through its arts, literature and politics. One of the most important literary inspirations for Bloodie Bones was John Clare’s beautiful poem The Mores, which brings home the impact of enclosures on the working people affected by them. And I also see connections between what’s happening today and what happened in the past – the enclosures movement, for example, shaped our landscape, it helped alter people’s working patterns, and encouraged the development of industrial towns.

"The suffragette who beat Win C": Theresa Garnett and the International Alliance of Women

I’ve always been interested in the “after life” of the suffrage campaigners in Britain – what they did after the campaign for the vote – especially since so many histories about them stop at the point when their involvement in the campaign came to an end. Because women’s war work during the First World War is associated with (and often cited as a direct cause of) the eventual enfranchisement of Br Read more of this blog post »

I enjoyed this book but it loses a star because the lovey-dovey element didn't do much for me. It felt at times that it was trying too hard to introduce complexity to the character of the Witcher, but I already find him an intriguing character withou ...more
