About the blog
Welcome to a place where I look at popular historical fiction, and then like a proper killjoy point out the inaccuracies. In truth, I love historical fiction and I love anything that makes history accessible, interesting and entertaining, but I also appreciate how many people accept what they see, hear or read as fact without any further research. I hope to make the research accessible, interesting and entertaining so everyone can appreciate historical fiction and the actual history behind it.
I welcome any articles on any element of history or historical fiction. If you would like to become a contributor, regular or sporadic or even a one-off, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
My interest in History is wide and varied, but in my time my specific research interests have included: Hagiography, Women in History, History of Monasticism, R.M.S Titanic, History on film and History of Mistresses & Sex workers.
I have a BA and an MA in Historical Studies with my first thesis on Anne Boleyn’s role as a mistress and my second on the Hagiography of Women.
I moonlight as a guest writer for Tudors Dynasty
Aside from this, I am a total nerd, am very Welsh, have a sweet tooth of mythical proportion and am slowly being subsumed by Fallout tattoos.
