What WriteHistoricalFiction.com is all about

The Write Historical Fiction Manifesto


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 blue tiles in a French kitchen. Or a splendid ball gown, only worn for a single night. All those details that conjure up a long-forgotten world.

Historical advisor for authors

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.

Contact me to discuss a research collaboration.

Or read along as I investigate a new topic every month. Browse my special history resources, handpicked especially for authors.

Because I want your quest for historical details to be the best part of writing your novel.
