About me

I am a fledgling writer with a primary interest in writing historical fiction. It’s what I also love to read the most. I’m mainly interested in the Middle Ages, Elizabethan England, the Reniassance, and the late 1800s/early 1900s. I’m hard at work doing research for a book set in medieval Wales so any help with that would be greatly appreciated.

Fungible is an adjective describing something as interchangeable. While listening to the radio today I was struck by the fungible sound of many of the artists and wished for something different.  Filed under: Word of the Day Tagged: Fungible, word of the day
