My Seat at the Round Table Discussion – Historical Fiction rocks.
I was asked to answer a series of fascinating questions about historical fiction. You can check out my answers where they appear with those of several other authors on Sophie Schiller’s Historical Fiction Round Table.
This quote by GK Chesterton almost matches word for the word what I said at the Round Table discussion. My books are all about those extraordinary people.
“History is about ordinary people living their ordinary lives, just as we do today, while all around the world is changing. It makes heroes out of some people and victims out of others.” —Vicky Adin
Many of the speakers at the Round Table will also be at the Historical Novel Society Australia Conference in Melbourne, 8-10 September, where I will also be a panellist.
Watch this space too, for my latest novel – GWENNA – due out 1 September…
