Author has written 7 stories for Historical, and Humor.

A tad about myself: I'm 18, from England (please note the flag) and am a huge fan of history. I love the Victorian and Edwardian eras especially and the royalty of these times is...well it's bordering on obsession at the moment.

I have a lot of fictional historical stories hanging around my computer and I'm uploading bits of them as I write them, so please bear with me when everything slows down.

Pointless information:

Song last listened to: Walkin' Back to Happiness by Helen Shapiro

Last book read: The Three Emperors by Miranda Carter

Last film watched: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Last thing watched on telly: Inside Nature's Giants (pretty much a televised dissection of a great white shark.)

Well that was a lovely waste of nice white screen, so (if you've struggled through that lot of waffle to get this far) I'll go now and upload some more history stuff. Hopefully someone out there will like what I write and (if you're them) please tell me so.

:)> It's a viking with a goatee. What more could you ask for in life?

Oh yes, and the people on my avatar are Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom and her grandson, Prince Olaf of Norway. Told you I was obsessed.

NOTE OF GREAT IMPORTANCE: As most people who actually read them are probably aware, I haven't done anything with my stories for quite simply yonks. This is mainly because I've just started University and am still settling in. However, panic ye not, for the adventures of Elsie, the Library Gang, Vicky Morris and the rest WILL continue in the future. I just thought I'd let you know that I haven't abandoned them to fickle Fate.

Just a Splash of Confusion by Ebimeep reviews
England, 1835: Bit doesn't know anything, and is suddenly vaulted from her pig-caring job on an obscure country manor to the matchmaker of the century. This is probably not genteel Tom's wisest move - but it should get the job done, right? Hilarity ensues

Tray Tale reviews
A drabble-ish thing about Queen Victoria, the Kaiser, and a marble bust of Prince Albert saving the day aboard the Titanic. Please don't ask. It was inspired by a conversation on Tumblr, which is all you need to know I think...
