Welcome to my world! I'll be sharing some of my past work with you, delving into history and giving my own 'take' on people and events, and updating you on work in progress. Currently, my book Narrow Windows, Narrow Lives for Tempus Publishing is scheduled for publication in 2008. Narrow Windows, Narrow Lives looks at everyday working life in Lancashire during the white heat and aftermath of the Industrial Revolution. I'm working hard on a new book, Regency Cheshire, for Robert Hale. I've been a regular contributor to BBC History; I write regularly for Jane Austen's Regency World. In the US, I've written for Highlander magazine. I'm also a creative writing tutor specialising in non-fiction for the Writers Bureau.
