About Me

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! 🙂

If you’d like to contact me about anything, I can be reached at my new blog-related email address via the “Contact Me!” page.

  2. Thanks very much for the kind words about my blog historywithatwist! I mentioned to Sarah (Jazz Feathers) about reading Bill Bryson’s book One Summer, 1927. You’ve probably read it. I thought it was terrific.Good luck with your novel.

    Hi there! I came across your blog while researching for my paper about Al Capone. I saw the name “Al Brown” and was confuse because I thought that was a different person. Your information in the post about Al Capone’s nicknames helped a lot, thanks!
