Well I haven’t posted for quite some time. Does this mean I’m a very busy writer or just a disorganised one?
While I’ve been away I’ve completed two articles for the Saunière Society’s Journal . One about the mystery teenager Kaspat Hauser from 19th century Nuremberg and the other about Ecsedi Báthory Erzsébet from Transylvania.
I’ve also been writing about the history of weaving in Scotland for an exhibition on woollen mills.
I’m in the midst of rewriting my book on the Scottish witchcraft trials of the 17th century, The Borders Burnings.
I’m planning out a future book inspired by a friend who has been researching his family tree.
And finally I’ve just received confirmation of my book commission on the history of Stow of Wedale; a rural parish in the lovely Scottish Borders.
So maybe I can safely claim to be a busy writer after all, even if I am also a disorganised one!
