Me, historical bookworm!

Good news blogging peeps.


I’ve got a tribute poem about WW1 accepted for an anthology that will be released 31st October.

Although not one of the brave people around 100 years ago will know about the poem I felt that from me a poem was a fine way to give my respect and honour those who gave so so much so that I could sit here and enjoy life.


The website is still a work in progress; I’ll let you know when it’s live.


The other side of writing is reading and I have been devouring a book on Madame Pompadour – Louis XV of France’s mistress, and in that book Voltaire is mentioned so I, intrigued, have downloaded his Letters on England which I’m sure I’ll enjoy.

After Voltaire, I’ll be reading a book on Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI of France…


Isn’t it funny how one book leads to another?!

I guess this summer will be spent in French history!


The great news is that I love history as much as reading.


And there’ll be a lot of writing going on too, writing is like breathing, I’ve just gotta do it!



You call me a weed

I might be a flower

You just don’t love me.


Have a fab day
