I’m a librarian by day and an amateur novelist by night. Right now I’m working on a piece of alternate history set in 1920s Chicago. While my novel isn’t exactly historically accurate, I use as much real history as possible to back up my setting changes, so I’ve ended up doing quite a lot of research. I decided to make this site as a place to put the more interesting bits I come across, in the hope that they will educate and entertain others.
Since this is my first blog, I suspect my writing tone will change over time, and the content might as well. I hope later on to include relevant book and film reviews as well, seeing as I’m also a big fan of early silent film, film noir and gangster movies. I’m also a huge true crime buff so I’m sure I’ll get in on that stuff too, if it’s period-relevant. But for now I’m gonna stick to short stuff on different topics from my research. Enjoy! 🙂
