  1. If I could choose, I would like to live in the roaring twenties in Paris. Something about all that hedonism as well as the creativity from artists, writers and poets.

    I’m pretty sure I have a romanticised view of what it was like, but as we’re being theoretical, I’m going with my imagination.

    1. That sounds like a fun time. I’d explore it with you.

    Hi J .. since I started getting involved in some academic talks and course .. I’ve learnt so much about all sorts – history and religions … it is fascinating .. but history amazes me – I was hopeless at it at school ..

    I’ve no idea which era I’d be happy with .. I’d like to experience all of them – as long as I can get out, when I feel the need to escape!!

    Cheers Hilary

    1. Yes, escaping would be useful. I think we’d miss our own time, … eventually.

    “There is no history – only biography.”

    It would be impressive if I could remember who said that…note I said “would be.”

    My son is planning on pursuing a history degree – love the poster.

    Great blog, by the way! Glad to see you on the A-to-Z!

    Favourite time period in history? Hmm … when I was at school I always liked learning about the Tudors, especially Elizabeth I. I was never really into recent history. Romans are always interesting too.

    1. Ah yes, the Virgin Queen. One of history’s most fascinating leaders.

  2. I haven’t touched on religion in my stories until the one I’m writing now, but there’s an issues of injustice in this one and somehow religion wound up dead center.

    1. Funny how it works out that way, isn’t it?

  3. I’ve been a history buff since childhood, ancient history in particular. In 2013, my life-long dream of exploring Greece finally came true. It was a mind-blowing experience!

    1. It certainly sounds exciting. Greece is fantastic.

  4. I guess a writer can take some liberties with either subject and be prepared to face wrath if anyone wants to dispute them. I guess it would have a lot to do with the nature of the story and the liberties taken with the facts.
    Purely historical fiction should probably adhere more to facts then some sort of story where certain elements of era provided a backdrop and was not part of any motivation that required absolute correctness. Religion can get into sticky realms and that is a topic that I do deal with at times.

    I’m not sure exactly what era of history I’d want to be in. The 19th century is a favorite time.
