Darlene Elizabeth Williams
I am an avid reader of historical fiction and have been ever since my mother brought “Little Women” home from the library.
I blog reviews of historical fiction novels. It is the exception, rather than the norm, for me to grant 5 stars (exceptional) to a novel. Four star reviews (excellent) are designated frequently for deserving novels.
I have high standards. I want to read intellectual, thought-provoking historical fiction (which hopefully prompts me to do some research too!).
My desire is to translate my 40-something years of reading historical fiction and experience blogging reviews into writing the type of historical fiction novel I give 4 or 5 stars.
I am currently working on my first novel, based on the biography of a determined, tenacious slave woman in 19th Century North Carolina.
I reside in Vancouver, Canada, with my husband. I have 2 adult sons.

Content brokers are often viewed by freelance writers as offering abysmal pay. Wrong. You can earn $50 an hour.
“Content mills” are slammed in general, especially by established freelance writers who have years of experience and spent countless hours soliciting clients. Reputable freelance sites do serve a purpose for a variety of writers.
