The latest news
Well, the last few months have certainly been busy ones! I've been hard at work on Book 5 of the Tales of Chetzemoka, in which Jacob and the chums (i.e., Ken and Felix) go on a trip and get mixed up in a romance between a high-class socialite and a red-haired circus performer. The research involved has been absolutely fascinating! I'm hoping to have the book finished by March. In the meantime, to tease you all a little but not spoil anything, here are some of the pictures I've been uncovering amongst all the reading I've been doing. Enjoy!
Besides being hard at work on Book 5, I've also put together TWO new anthologies of historical materials. (I told you I've been busy!) The Wheelman's Joy is a collection of my favorite Victorian cycling poetry, prose witticisms and short remarks about wheeling from the 1880's and '90s. Quotations of Quality is the result of an oft-repeated request that I type up the commonplace book wherein I write down my favorite Victorian quotes and make this collection of bon-mots available to the public.
