I am a Historical Fiction Addict like you =) I am a wife, mom of two youngsters, and I work full-time as a bookkeeper near Dallas, Texas. I do hoard many books at home, too.
I write reviews at www.BurtonBookReview.com, which has been online since December 2008. You can find 186 book reviews online (and counting!), primarily HF. I also enjoy historical Christian fiction and historical romance. My favorite HF novel incorporates romance, inspiration, history and even a dash of mystery.
The reviews I have written for the HNS can be found at http://historicalnovelsociety.org/reviewer/marie-burton/
You can also find me co-hosting the Historical Fiction Connection site at HF-Connection.com, where we invite all of you to guest blog for us.
Some of my favorite authors include Elizabeth Chadwick, Sharon Kay Penman and Georgette Heyer. I am pleased to say I have finally gone a month without reading something Tudor related.
Someday I’ll be a writer, but that is still a pipe dream!
