New author and reader joining the boards!
Also a voracious reader, most inspired by historical fiction. I'm obsessed with the nineteenth century and have studied it passionately for many years now. My other great love of mountaineering has led me to a natural harmony of these subjects: an interest in the climbers of the 19th century. This fascinating topic is the subject of most of my research (and books). I'm looking to discover as much new historical fiction as possible, but not just set in the 1800s--my interests are very broad.
I have also been blogging pretty much from the start, and my current blog (http://alexroddie.blogspot.com/) is slowly growing but failing to gain much readership. Hence one reason why I'm here =)
