About me and about this blog


I was born in England and now live in a 17th century house in the Herefordshire countryside. A history buff for many years, I finally decided it was time to start telling some stories set in my favourite period in history…. the Napoleonic.

Interests in history, travel and the countryside also fuel my other passion… taking photographs. So my aim for this site is to encompass all these topics with posts on the people, events and idiosyncrasies of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods, some shameless promotion of my own fictional writing and galleries of some of my favourite images.

I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to contact me about anything I post.
