Hi Julie,

I hope you're well? We are currently working with US author Allen Woods and his book 'TheSword & Scabbard: Thieves and Thugs and the Bloody Massacre in Boston'. 

The book (Boston Heritage Publishing, 2015, 978-0-8841-0-1, $19.99 online or e-book 978-0-8841-1-8, $11.99, www.theswordandscabbard.com) brings the period to life in a fast-paced tale using real and fictional characters who experience the social and political conflicts from a different point of view.

Here is some more info: http://www.authoramp.com/2015/04/the-sword-and-scabbard-thieves-and-thugs-and-the-bloody-massacre-in-boston/

We are looking for appropriate and awesome historical fiction blogs to try and get some coverage for this book, and wondered if we could feature the press release on your blog - or whether you'd like a copy to review?

We would also welcome any interviews if this is of interest.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Kind regards,

Kris

Excellent overview. I am very seriously considering beginning a formal One Name Study and have been wrestling with the software decision. Tessa makes an outstanding case that Legacy is the way to go!!

E is for Elstead Mill
This lovely building, once a mill still stands, and is now a rather lovely and authentic public house in the rural Surrey village of Elstead. I have an ancestor, Sarah Ellis (nee Hall), born in London who moved to Elstead and is recorded on the 1851 Census ...

Story
Tagline
Genealogist & historian, researcher, booklover, writer and blogger
Introduction
I am a Surrey girl, who is very proud of her roots, which go back almost 300 years in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.  I currently live in the West Country of England, but Surrey is always home! I am also half Italian and thus have an interest in Italian culture and genealogy.

After a career in pharmacy management spanning more than 20 years, I made the decision to look at my options as to where my professional life was heading. I wanted to expand my work portfolio within the training and writing arena; to utilise my historical and research skills along with other qualifications and years of experience. I created The Book of Me, Written by You back in the Autumn of 2012. It threads together the focus of my interests and qualifications. Enabling me to encourage others to think beyond the obvious as we analyse our own lives and those of our close family members.

Employment
  • Freelance
    present
    Having left pharmacy on a full time basis, I still practice and am registered with the professional regulator. I also undertake various continuing professional development, reviews and training work. I also present and write various presentations and training methods across pharmacy and the historical and genealogical arenas. I have successfully developed and written The Book of Me, Written by You as a series of workshops both in the literal sense and through an online version. I write a regular column for The In-Depth Genealogist which is a monthly digital magazine and I am currently working on numerous projects including writing a genealogical resource book to be published in February 2015.
  • Various
    Across the pharmacy profession I worked in a variety of settings; retail, hospital, industry, health centers and for HM Government before heading back to community pharmacy. I have had an assortment of roles; ranging from store based through to area and regional based and then head office based. I spent a great deal of time as a troubleshooter and "fixer" before moving into a series of training roles.
