About Me

My photo
Surrey, B.C., Canada
I have always been an avid reader and history has always been a passion of mine. I am a huge historical fiction fan, who also enjoys reading gothic tales with chills and thrills, mystery and suspense and who loves stepping back in time..... A quote I once read stated: I don't live in the past..the past lives in me!.. Perhaps that's why I am a Family History/Genealogy Addict too!

Types of Historical Books I Like

The types of Historical books I like to read are:
Fiction or Non-Fiction;
Alternative History (Sci-Fi/Fantasy);
Ghost Stories and
Celtic Tales.

As you can see HISTORY is a very important part of the types of books I like to read.

I find there is nothing more satisfying, than reading a book which combines historical fiction, with a haunting mystery, modern suspense and has elements of the supernatural/paranormal such as a time-slip genre.

Two of my all time favourite authors who write this type of genre are Susanna Kearsley and Barbara Erskine.
