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/urban fantasy 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 films, 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 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!
