An author and reader of fantasy, sci fi, historical fiction (very time specific) and the odd Lee Child and Harlan Coben book. 
I'm a post-graduate history student and can get a little carried away and nerdy with little details - I apologise now! I started writing historical fiction to see if I could, and because a rather famous author annoyed me a little and now I'm really enjoying it, and feel a little addicted, seeing stories in all the research I do. 
I can be found on facebook, twitter, Goodreads and Wordpress (earl of mercia). And there's a new website for Brunanburh at Brunanburh937.moonfruit.com.
