I love historical novels which make me feel like I’m being swept away into the past.
And I believe that details make all the difference.
Like an old fast Peugeot.,the love letter concealed in a book.,the blue French tiles in the kitchen.,a splendid ball gown only worn for a single night.
All those details that conjure up a long-forgotten world.
My name is Dr. Barbara, and I’m a researcher & historical advisor for authors.
I am committed to finding memorable details from the past, as I plough through history books, decipher the spidery handwriting in old letters, and interview experts & authors on how they conduct research.
I’ve collaborated on historical novels, romance and women’s fiction, crime and suspense, thrillers, biographical and adventure novels, family sagas, all kinds of other novels and, of course, love stories.
Contact me to discuss a research collaboration.
Or browse my special history resources, handpicked especially for authors: the Historical Fiction Prompts.
Because I want your quest for historical details to be the best part of writing your novel.
»Dr. B, you’re a stellar researcher + you always find the most fascinating information. Your passion for your work is beautifully obvious.«
