Defining 'Nobility' in Later Anglo-Saxon England


This week, I posted on the EHFA (English Historical Fiction Authors) blog about the nobility in later Anglo-Saxon England.


This piece was taken from my undergraduate study notes and of course, informed the research which I undertook for my novels, particularly for 'Alvar'.

The Spirit of Grace - Author Terry Lynn Thomas Casts Light ...

Today I'm delighted to welcome as my guest, author Terry Lynn Thomas


I began by asking her: ~

You say that you like to visit historic houses and cemeteries to look for ideas. Are "Bennett House" and "The Laurels" in your book based on real buildings?

The short answer is yes, Bennett House is definitely modeled after a certain type of house that you see on the California coastline. The town of Bennett Cove is loosely fashioned after Stinson Beach, California. That part of California was mostly used for dairy farming until after the war, when tourists discovered the seashore, and flocked there in droves. If you drive along Highway 1, you see these old farm houses from the mid-nineteenth century. And while a mid-1800s house won’t seem old to my UK readers, you have to keep in mind that California didn't became a part of the United States until 1850. I was always captivated by these houses as a child. Flash forward to my early teens, when one of my sister's friends worked as a ranch hand, and lived atop the barn at one of these old beauties. She truly had her bed and dresser in a hayloft, with no electricity or running water. (She had access to the main house for those amenities.) I spent the night with her one night, and she regaled me with ghost stories. I drew on this experience, and in particular, that particular farmhouse, as I conjured up the images of Bennett House.

You've relocated recently, but originally came from the area in which The Spirit of Grace is set. How much did growing up/living there inform your ideas for the novel?

My father fought in World War II and met my mother when he mustered out in Los Angeles. He and my mom moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and had a blast living in the City during the time of post-war abundance. And since I spent a lot of time in San Francisco (I worked there for years), it was really easy for me to picture my parents back in the day living their young lives in the city. San Francisco has its own unique vibe and it has always been really easy for me to imagine what the city was like during the war.



You've blended history with murder to create a 'gothic' novel. Is either element of the story-telling more important to you? Could you envisage writing a hist fic, or a modern-day murder mystery?

I love fiction with a “Gothicy” tone, namely an isolated place, a big house, the changing type of circumstances that provide an opportunity for mistaken identity, and a heroine that—unlike the old-school Gothics—actually works to save herself. These story elements resonate with me, and will probably influence my writing for a good long time. Right now I do not have plans to write a modern-day mystery, but who knows. I am open to anything. That’s the beauty of writing fiction—you get to make it up as you go along!

If I were to delve into a historical book (without a murder), I would do so during the time between the wars. So many social and economic changes were happening at this time, I could come up with endless stories. I have ideas about a series which takes place in the UK. Research trip! I do not see myself writing a novel during a time period where people are so connected that they do not need to leave the house, (via the Internet) or where people are so obsessed with their mobile phones that they need to read them while they drive (texting). And while I try to embrace technology, sometimes I become nostalgic for the days before we were so plugged in, yet so disconnected from one another.

This is your first published novel. Have you learned anything about the publishing process that might make things easier when it comes to publishing your next novel?

The main thing that I’ve learned is that I have a lot to learn! I have learned to be patient, as the process moves at its own pace, which is frighteningly slow. I have developed a deep sense of gratitude for those who read.

And speaking of that next novel, can you tell us of your current/future writing projects? The ending of 'Grace' suggests the possibility of a sequel...

The second novel, “Weeping in the Wings” is with the publisher now, and I expect it to release in August. This book takes places six months after the end of ‘Grace.’ I am in the process of writing book three, and book four and book five are percolating. Sarah and Zeke are such an interesting pair, I have no shortage of story ideas.

How much research have you had to do? Are you an expert in murder now?

My research for these books has mainly been about the historical issues. I’ve striven for an accurate portrayal of what it felt like to live on the California coastline during World War II. That part of the research has been so fun. When I start a project, I decide the exact time span the story will encompass, and then read the daily newspapers from the era. I also read the novels of that time, listen to music, and have discovered a passion for old time radio shows. As for the murder part, I must confess that I predominantly read murder mysteries. I started reading Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and Patricia Wentworth as a young girl, and have pretty much read books of that ilk all my life. I considered myself well versed in murder; however, my stories don’t necessarily focus on the actual crime itself, but rather on the circumstances and dramatic events surrounding the crime.

To my mind, the act of murder serves as a literary device. What better way to find out the true mettle of a character? Each murder mystery ultimately asks the question, “What desperate situation would propel someone to take the life of another?” This is a launching pad for me, and it never fails. I also dive into other criminal acts, but they must be significant enough in their own right to drive my characters to make significantly bad choices.

Thanks Terry Lynn, for such illuminating answers.


Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Terry Lynn Thomas married the love of her life, who promised to buy her a horse if she relocated to Mississippi with him. Now that she has relocated, she has discovered that she can be happy anywhere as long as she has her man, her horse and time to write. Although she is from the US, Terry Lynn has loved British mysteries and literature since she was old enough to read. She devoured novels by Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, Dorothy Eden, Agatha Christie, and Daphne Du Maurier as a child. These gothic mysteries captured her imagination, never let go, and influence her writing today. When she is not writing or riding her horse, she visits historical houses and cemeteries, hunting for story ideas.

The Spirit of Grace ~
Sarah Bennett doesn’t remember the night her mother tumbled down the stairs at Bennett House. Although she allegedly witnessed the incident, she knows in her heart that she did not give her mother that fateful push. When she becomes the subject of dark whispers and sidelong glances, Sarah’s family sends her to The Laurels, an exclusive asylum in San Francisco. Now, one year after her mother’s death, Sarah is summoned home. When she returns, another murder occurs, and Sarah is once again a suspect. In order to clear her name, Sarah must remember what happened the fateful night her mother died. But as Sarah works to regain her memory, the real murderer watches, ready to kill again to protect a dark family secret.

From Regency to Science Fiction - Maria Grace Casts Light ...

Today I am delighted to welcome as my guest, author Maria Grace ~


I asked her:
Why the Regency period? What is it that you love so much about that era? 
I think the Regency is particularly fascinating because it sits on the cusp of the industrial revolution. It is ‘historical’ but not so far removed from our context that it is hard for readers to relate to. I also love that I can access documents published in the period and read about it in the words of people who were living and writing then. 

Obviously Jane Austen is an inspiration to you. What is it that you admire so much about her writing?
Jane Austen’s characters were simply brilliant. Though set two hundred years ago, her people are vivid and relatable today. Her plots also stand the test of time and are as entertaining today as they were in her day. 

How does one begin to go about making a Regency costume - do any original patterns still exist? 
There are a number of Regency patterns available, both costume-y/theatrical and historically accurate. Original patterns were generally drafted by the seamstress to fit a customer. Some patterns were published in ladies’ magazines, but those were generally taken out and used by the original purchasers of the magazines, so few copies are available. But you can find both drafting instructions, if you are up to the task, and historically accurate recreation patterns pretty readily. Some will sew their Regency costumes by hand. Honestly, I’m not that dedicated. I stick to the sewing machine. 


Mistaking Her Character features many familiar names: Lizzy Bennet, Darcy, Lady Catherine, George Wickham - but this is not Pride and Prejudice. Can you tell us about it?
Mistaking Her Character is a re-imagining of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It begins with the premise: What if Mr. Bennet was a second son and not the heir to Longbourn? In that case, he would need a profession. In the era, there were only a few options to have a profession and remain a gentleman: military officer, clergyman, barrister, and physician. In this book, I made Mr. Bennet a physician and the personal physician for Lady Catherine de Bourgh and her sickly daughter Anne. Mr. Darcy meets Elizabeth Bennet in this context, at Rosings Park. At that point, I more or less let the characters go and sat back and watched what happened. 


You've written novels and short stories - do you have a preference? Is one easier to write than the other?
I find short stories really challenging. It seems like I naturally conceive stories in 100K word chunks. I love depth and detail in my stories. Trying to pack that into a short form really forces me out of my comfort zone. But I think getting out and trying difficult things is the best way to try and grow as an author. So I’ve got a couple more short projects brewing for this year.

What's next? 
I’ve got a number of projects in the hopper right now. I am editing the sequel to Mistaking Her Character, a story about Elizabeth’s youngest sister, Lydia called ‘The Trouble to Check Her’. It should be out in April 2016. I am also drafting a third sequel, the story of another of Elizabeth’s sisters, Mary. Outside of the Regency era, I am working on a five book Science Fiction series, that somehow I wrote the third, fourth and fifth books first! I’m drafting the first book now. 

~*~

The Trouble To Check Her ~ Lydia Bennet faces the music…

Running off with Mr. Wickham was a great joke—until everything turned arsey-varsey. That spoilsport Mr. Darcy caught them and packed Lydia off to a hideous boarding school for girls who had lost their virtue.

It would improve her character, he said.

Ridiculous, she said.

Mrs. Drummond, the school’s headmistress, has shocking expectations for the girls. They must share rooms, do chores, attend lessons, and engage in charitable work, no matter how well born they might be. She even forces them to wear mobcaps! Refusal could lead to finding themselves at the receiving end of Mrs. Drummond's cane—if they were lucky. The unlucky ones could be dismissed and found a position … as a menial servant.

Everything and everyone at the school is uniformly horrid. Lydia hates them all, except possibly the music master, Mr. Amberson, who seems to have the oddest ideas about her. He might just understand her better than she understands herself.

Can she find a way to live up to his strange expectations, or will she spend the rest of her life as a scullery maid?




Author bio: Though Maria Grace has been writing fiction since she was ten years old, those early efforts happily reside in a file drawer and are unlikely to see the light of day again, for which many are grateful. After penning five file-drawer novels in high school, she took a break from writing to pursue college and earn her doctorate in Educational Psychology. After 16 years of university teaching, she returned to her first love, fiction writing. She has one husband, two graduate degrees and two black belts, three sons, four undergraduate majors, five nieces, six new novels in the works, attended seven period balls, sewn eight Regency era costumes, shared her life with nine cats through the years and published her tenth book last year.

Thanks so much, Maria, for shining a light on your Regency (and Sci-fi!) writing.

Seahorses, and how knowing stuff is just fun sometimes ...


A little piece in the corner of the newspaper caught my eye the other week. It said "Seahorses of Britain at risk of dying out" and it went on to report that their habitat is being destroyed by pollution and trawling. My first thought was that this news was really sad; my second was that in the great scheme of things, it was not so terrible. Those caught up in war, in poverty, in crisis and in misery in general would care little for the plight of these little seahorses, and who could blame them?

Fortunately, I am at liberty to muse on such things, from the comfort of my warm and peaceful home. Seahorses make me smile, and when I smile, I'm happy. Appreciating the nicer things in life is part of what makes us human. And sometimes, it's nice just to appreciate something for its own sake.

I've recently had reason to be grateful for my education. When the BBC televised War and Peace early in 2016, I was glad that I knew a little bit about it. Not because I've read the book, (I haven't) and not even necessarily because of my background in history, (I have a degree in the subject) but because of two women: my mother, and my English A level teacher. It has to be said that my mother was also a teacher, of languages, before she retired, and she and my English teacher were the kind of teacher who taught right round the subject, and strove to inform and educate whenever the need or opportunity arose. Sitting next to my mother in the 1970s, I watched the original adaptation of War and Peace, and asked questions, all of which my mother was only too happy to answer.

So, when the inevitable discussion about the newest version opened up on Facebook, I was able to wade in and tell people that no, they didn't wear corsets, because the dresses were known as Empire Line. (I was also able to explain to my daft husband that no, there is not a sequel!) It was my English teacher who explained to me the links between music, literature and painting, so that I learned how the Romantic Movement involved more than just poets throwing frilly-sleeved arms up, hand to brow, and weeping over daffodils.


As a teenager I loved the music of Tchaikovsky. I still do, actually, but back then it really matched my angst. The lessons where we strayed from studying Chaucer and Jane Austen to talking about links between the arts made me appreciate his music more, and filled in some of the gaps about the 1812 Overture. I knew, though, that both the Russian and the French national anthems are incorporated into it; the Russian anthem was used in the original BBC series and I remember my mother explaining to me what it was, and its significance. It pleases me to know that the Russian national anthem has changed a few times over the years, and that I have a recording of the 1812 which uses real cannon.

Just yesterday, a magazine quiz had me stumped, for the most part. The only answer I knew (the rest were mostly science and geography, with which I've never been on good terms. There's been a lot of misunderstandings between us over the years) was that the Tailor of Gloucester was a mouse. Again, this is knowledge derived from story time on my mother's knee, or curled up in bed. 



So this is not my formal education. This is the round-about stuff that serves no real purpose, other than to make me happy.  George Sand thought that "Art for art's sake" was an empty phrase. But "What we learn with pleasure, we never forget," according to Alfred Mercier. If I'm happy, and I'm learning, then I'm a better human being. The little seahorses do matter, because they help make the world beautiful. Perhaps the eco-system won't collapse if seahorses die out. I used to joke with my children that everything in the world, including them, should be decorative or functional. And both characteristics have their merits.

Unexpected Paths: Author Miriam Drori Casts Light ...

Today I am delighted to welcome author Miriam Drori ~



I began by asking her:
You live in a very beautiful part of the world, but one that has a troubled history. Does anything about where you live inform your writing?
I agree that Israel is very beautiful. I think what makes it special is the huge variety in a small area. Sea, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, desert – we have them all. History abounds from monuments to recent events going back to ancient archaeological sites. The troubles are part of what makes that history so interesting, although of course we’d prefer to live without them.
I haven’t yet written about that part of living here. My novel, Neither Here Nor There and short stories that are set here don’t mention it. I worried that readers from around the world would expect any story set here to include these ongoing struggles. I should have given them more credit for being able to see beyond the words and pictures from the news media.
That said, clearly my novel is rooted in Israel and includes descriptions of various places and problems that exist here, although similar problems can be found all over the world.

From a maths degree to computing to writing would seem to be quite a leap. Does a mathematical/analytical mind help when it comes to the process of writing?
I think mathematically-minded people often turn to crime writing, as they enjoy working out the twists and turns that keep readers guessing. That might be an idea for me for the future. So far, I don’t know whether my mathematical leanings have helped specifically, although I’m sure all experiences enrich writing in some way and influence the process of getting words onto pages.

You didn't yearn from an early age to write. When and why did that change?
I grew up knowing I could express myself well in writing – and better than I could in aural communication – but thinking I didn’t have anything much to say. That was because I was the youngest in the class and a late developer. I wasn’t ready for the sort of writing (or reading) that was expected of us, and so was never encouraged to write.
It was after I discovered social anxiety at the age of fifty and became passionate about raising awareness of this common but little-known disorder that I began writing. I started with non-fiction before venturing into fiction. My first attempt at a novel involved two people with social anxiety. Through it, I learned a lot about writing. That novel has gone through many stages. I’m still working on it.

How would you define "Social Anxiety"?
Social anxiety is a fear of people and especially of what those people think of the “sufferer”. When social anxiety is so prominent that it dictates a person’s life it can be called social anxiety disorder.
Many people describe social anxiety as extreme shyness. While it’s true in most cases that social anxiety stems from shyness, it’s not true in my case and so I steer clear of that definition.

Your book Neither Here Nor There opens with Esty knowing that today is going to be far from normal. Can you tell us a little bit more?
“Normal” for Esty means always wearing clothes that cover her knees and elbows; always wearing tights despite the summer heat; never touching a man or sitting close to one; reciting prayers before eating, travelling and much more. Esty has grown up as part of the haredi community, living in Mea Shearim, an area of Jerusalem very close, geographically, to its centre but culturally very far. Normally, such a girl would go on to choose from a handful of suitors and settle down in a small flat, where she would bring up her large number of children.
No one knows it yet, but Esty has decided to leave that life and carve a new one for herself. She has no idea of the difficulties that await her on the other side of the imaginary fence.


Displaying Front50%.jpg
Are you working on anything at the moment?
I’m working on three novels, but specifically at the moment I’m collaborating with another author on a historical novel based on a painting by Klimt. That’s new for me on both aspects: collaboration and the historical setting. Fortunately she has prior experience with them and I’m enjoying the process.
Annie, thank you so much for your interesting questions and for inviting me onto your blog.
Miriam, thank you for agreeing to be my guest today and for your interesting answers.
Neither Here Nor There is on sale this week on Amazon. It can also be bought from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iTunes and elsewhere.

Murder, Music and Mumbai - Author Jane Risdon Casts Light ...

Today I'm delighted to welcome as my guest, author Jane Risdon: ~


I began by asking her:
Although you had a career with the Diplomatic Service, it seems that the vast majority of your working life has been spent in the Music Industry. You've written stories based on those times - did you know at the time that you would take inspiration from your experiences, or was writing something that you came to later on?

I have always wanted to write. I had an offer when young to join The Times in London, via a friend’s father who was an editor, to apprentice as a journalist. I fancied being a War Correspondent, but my family was unhelpful - being a girl and wanting to do this was unthinkable. Girls went into nursing or became secretaries and then mothers. My parents were moving overseas and didn’t want to leave me behind to study or work in London; they turned his offer down. Eventually I needed to escape from Germany and applied for the FCO – in the Office for Information – but after my interview board it was decided I was ‘full-on’ FCO material. 



With the background of the Cold War, Russian Spies being expelled, ours being caught, and with various Terrorist groups around the world becoming more active, this was fertile ground for someone harbouring writing dreams. I met a young musician whilst still at school, after many trials and tribulations we married and eventually after years on the road he decided to call it a day, and we went into the management of recording artists and record producers; a wealth of experiences and material ready to be tapped in to. At the time I never thought I’d have to wait half my life to be able to write.

I'm intrigued to know a little more about the White-haired Man. Have you been to Mumbai and where you there at the time of the attacks?
The White Haired Man: Gosh, this is dangerous. My husband was in Mumbai at the time of the terrorist attacks on the railway station and hotels and just missed being killed. Although he’d been in one of the restaurants a few minutes before the terrorists struck, he’d altered his plans for the evening, and had to leave suddenly. A friend was killed and others injured. A character who’d been introduced to him a few hours before, offered his assistance in light of hotel problems caused by the bombing. This person turned out to be a Gangster, the Indian Mafia, and I have woven my book around him. Mafia does figure a lot in my writing. Unfortunately in the international entertainment business there are always ‘unsavoury’ types swimming close by. I hope to complete this novel next year.

Where did Ms Birdsong come from? Can you tell us a little bit more about her?
Ms Birdsong Investigates: I wanted to write a crime series based in The Vale of the White Horse, where we lived when not in Los Angeles, and I imagined my protagonist would be like Ms Marple but more modern. 

She’d been floating around my brain for a long time. But, when I came to write her, I felt she was far too soft, too predictable. I’d almost completed the first book, still unhappy with it, when I went to a family wedding in the most amazing country house on 6000 acres. To cut a long story short I noticed the house had a massive collection of art on loan from HM Government. This struck me as odd, because only Government buildings received art on loan, as a far as I knew. I started a conversation with one of the receptionists who, it turned out, was employed by the FCO. The penny dropped and I told her I’d worked at the FCO and we discussed buildings and people and I asked her about the house. I was right, the house is what is known as a ‘Safe House,’ where spies and so forth are often taken to be debriefed, or top level talks are held there - think G8 or some such similar meetings. Everyone working there, including cleaners, gardeners and cooks, were FCO employees. Oh manna from heaven. Inside one of the suites there was a bathroom with a ‘panic room.’ I came away from there with Ms B. going in a whole new direction. She’d be former MI5, involuntarily retired after a failed mission with her now former lover, MI6 officer, Michael Dante. 

She’d live in a rural setting, going nuts with boredom, so she begins surveillance on the locals. Eventually when a woman goes missing, she helps investigate and this leads her to Russian Mafia people traffickers (they had to pop in somewhere) and Ukrainian gun-runners. Oh, and there is murder. I have three books on the go for her. 

And whilst we're on the subject of crime, I'm sure writers in all genres would love to know: how easy is it to kill someone, and how easy is it to bury a body?
Oh yes, hiding the bodies. Last year I decided I needed to better inform myself about all things Forensic; technology and science change so rapidly and I felt I had huge gaps in my knowledge about crime scenes, what happens to dead bodies and how an investigation is run, now so many agencies are involved. I signed up for a course on Forensic Anthropology (think Bones/CSI) and soon learned that these TV shows misinform/mislead us badly. So forget all TV has taught you.

How easy is it to kill someone? I would say very difficult. So many factors need to be in the killer’s favour and if accidental, the killer has to improvise and that is where they make their mistakes. Everyone at a crime scene, killer or victim, leaves something of themselves behind or on themselves. DNA can now be traced back over decades if the samples are left in the right conditions. If premeditated, the killer has to have a plan and that plan has to work completely, but, even so, they cannot possibly cover every eventuality and traces will be left at a scene and taken away from a scene with the killer. Moving a body, a dead weight, undetected, is a major nightmare for a killer. That is why so many victims are dismembered – convenience and ease of disposal. No-one notices someone carrying a small bag or case to a car, but humping a huge carpet wrapped body for example, is going to be another matter. You’d have to kill someone in a selected place, near a disposal site, to make life easy for yourself. But not too many people are going to stand by an open grave, willingly, whilst you bump them off and roll them into it. 

Burying a body. This is a major task. Forget digging a few feet down and rolling the body into it. How much time do you think you’d need to dig even a shallow grave? A shallow grave is often found by a dog being walked. Fido finds a bone, often a few feet from the grave, where animals have scavenged the body. Fido can smell a rotting corpse, or even where one has been. You have to find a remote spot, off the beaten track, to dig your grave. As soon as you begin digging, you leave forensic evidence. Try digging a shallow hole and see what happens to the earth, leaves and other debris as you dig. It falls back in. So all plans of a deeper grave go out the window as you realise the longer it takes, the more chance you have of discovery. Most killers don’t have time or equipment to dig down far enough – about six feet – to fully bury a body which won’t be found easily. You might leave a footprint inside the grave, a fingerprint on wrapping for the body, your hair might fall in. 

How do you bring an earth mover to the burial site in order to dig deep enough? Nope, burying a body is a major problem for any murderer. I am in the midst of writing up my notes from my course, for my blog, so anyone interested in the identification of bones and a clandestine burial, keep an eye out for it. I am about to begin another course, Criminal Justice and Forensics. So I’ll be blogging about that eventually. 

You've been in the Diplomatic Service, the Music Industry, you're heavily into photography and you write crime novels. Is this a salutary lesson for us writers not to pigeonhole our characters, or do you see a common thread running through all your interests? 
My stories do centre mainly around my life experiences, it’s true. Although I’ve written about Pirates and Ghosts (all with a twist) and I am working on a comedy series. I’ve co-written a book with an award winning author (she was fan club secretary to my husband’s band) due out in the spring sometime, which features music, fashion, world events and a love triangle, set in 1968/1969. So I do dabble in other genres. I use photos to fix my locations – visual notes – quite often, but so a far I’ve not discovered any shallow graves.


Any new direction you want to go in?
Crime writing is my greatest love, with a twist, possibly espionage or organised crime, but I shall continue to write it.

Thanks so much Jane, for sharing your amazing stories with us.
