About me

Besides being an avid reader of historical fiction and non fiction, I am a book reviewer, researcher, writer, blogger, world traveler and artist too.

My favourite period is the 18th c- but will read almost anything that happened before that time. I have this fascination with royalty and all the drama that went on back then…

If you visit my site:, you will (first and foremost meet my muse, Josephine Bonaparte),then notice that I have a preference for European history: mostly, but not limited to, France and Italy (my roots being Venetian:).

In my former profession I was a Language Consultant and English Prof. I traded all that to
stay up way past my bedtime due to excessive reading-and pay for it dearly the very next day…(and love it!)

I live in Canada with my wonderful husband and kids:)
