Please note, most of the opinions of English legal practice are those of the writer, Mr. White. I do not agree with many of them, but it was easier to write it this way. My comments and emphases are in italics. For my current story, I was looking for information on UK trial procedure, especially … Continue reading Oh my lord…
You Know You Write Historical Fiction When…
You know you're a history fiction writer when: You're ecstatic to find out "sniffling" is from the 17th c. and "squib" was old enough for the book you're writing! Sorry about the long gap since last post. Where has the year gone?
“What did you most admire about your grandparents?”
One of my online groups, "Hearts Through History", had this as a weekly topic. This is my entry. My maternal grandpa was the best. Funny, clever and always ready to help. He was an immigrant from Italy who left there old enough to remember bits about living there. He described the area around his home, … Continue reading “What did you most admire about your grandparents?”

I’m writing a story set in Switzerland and have been looking into rules and customs to make it more accurate. I just came on some interesting facts.

Things that strike me as darkly funny or clever.
Hillaire Belloc: "When I'm dead, I hope it may be said, his sins were scarlet but his books were read." Fr. Hunwicke's suggestion for a memorial plaque on a park bench (he hates the idea of them): IN MEMORY OF THE REVD JOHN WILLIAM HUNWICKE MA Oxon HE WAS A SPLENETIC MISANTHROPE WHO LOATHED NATURE* … Continue reading Things that strike me as darkly funny or clever.
