Writing history: company history, family history, house history, biography…
May 27, 2017
- Research is the solid foundation, but the book has to be a good read. I’ve had many books of history and biography published (under other names). Some have been made into TV programmes.
- With every new commission and fresh research project, my sense of different periods and places deepens. I can bring a well-founded sense of period to whatever I write, whether it’s a company that began hundreds of years ago, or an early childhood in the twentieth century.
- I write non-fiction creatively, but I very much recognise the importance of detail and credibility; I’m used to keeping meticulous records of sources as work progresses, and end-noting them where publishers require it. Please contact me to discuss your project.
