About Me

Me, Myself, and I
I'm a history buff with a fascination for the little details who reads endlessly, researches fanatically, and writes obsessively.

A college focus of Interior Design spiced with English and History gave me a desire to design my own castles and then populate them with people from scullery maids to dukes.

My taste in reading is as diverse as in my writing. Anything from romance, historical or contemporary, to science-fiction/fantasy and mystery.
Music
Eclectic: from Pop to Country, Celtic to A Capella.
Films
Harry Potter(1st), Princess Bride, Shawkshank Redemption, Hunt for Red October
Sports
Better to Play them than to watch them. Better to sleep through them than to play them
Happiest When
Listening to Music and Reading or Writing.

  • Knowledge is Power

    Knowledge is Power--or so we've been told. But then we are also told "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing". So how do we evalutate when we have more than a "little" knowledge? That we have "enough" to speak/write well on a subject?

    Too often today, we search the web for that quick dose of knowledge without any awareness of who is offering up the information.

    One of my favourite websites to demonstrate this is: http://www.suite101.com/articles.cfm...

    Christine Inge published a set of webpages on Regency Era England several years back that still are available on the web. And I do not say that all her facts are wrong...but with the egregious(easily identified) errors given, it puts all her other research in doubt.

    http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/...
    on page two Inge writes:
    "Life in general settled down considerably after Prinny's daughter Victoria ascended to the throne."
    A simple check of an English history book or a genealogy chart would tell any seeker that Victoria was Prinny's(George IV) niece not daughter.

    There are many good, well researched webpages out there, but even more ill-informed pages. Pity, they are not easily identified as to which is which.

    Thanks for the add! Isn't it easy to get caught up in the research - sometimes I have to drag myself out of the books to start writing. There just needs to be more hours in every day! Dianne Ascroft, 'Hitler and Mars Bars'

    Thanks for the warm welcome Kat. I've been quiet because I've been one busy little author. Plus we're moving next month. That's always fun. LOL. Oh well, at least it's only across town and not to another city or state ;-)

    Glad to hear about your progress. It's exciting. My feeling is that the beginning of books and the end of books are a whole lot easier to write than the middle of books. Middle chapters are the hardest, by far. So I hope the rest of the book just flies off your keyboard.

    Just dropping by to send you a big hug Kat. Exciting about your PDFs and the great treasure trove you discovered. Anne told me to go no mail (she's right of course) but I am still checking in. It's like I put myself in a little boat far from the great big mother ship. Can you see my signal? I'm the one waving the latern going, "Hope you miss me while I'm gone!" Best to you, Kathryn.

    Oh, I'm with you! I'm getting too old for this stuff!! But I have to say, I still agree with my comment--when we packed all of our stuff in St. Louis, there was a whole lotta cleanin' goin' on!

    278 Books! Where will you put them? I don't have room for even one book in this place...in fact, I sold about twenty yesterday on my front lawn for .25 per book. But whatever...just enjoy them. Kathryn
