About My Library
I love history, biography and archaeology, particularly of adventurers, explorers and travellers. I also write about these same topics. In fiction I enjoy a good historical mystery or adventure story such as Bernard Cornwell's Viking series. I also enjoy unusual titles like Kockroach. I'll read almost anything if its good.
