Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
My blog’s title is “passionate about the past”, which is my attempt at a clever pun! Well, a pun, anyway.
As I’m an erotic romance writer, getting some kind of reference to passion in there somewhere seemed important. As I’m exclusively a writer of historical novels, the word past refers to that, so “passionate about the past” implies the historical nature of my naughty novels!
It’s a pun because I’m also half a historian – my degree was half history, half English Literature – and I love reading and learning about the past. My favourite time period is pre and post Norman Conquest and the early medieval, but I’m quite willing to watch and read just about anything to do with the past. My only caveat is that I’m really not that interested in twentieth century history, having studied that to death for GCSE and A-Level. The further back in time I can go, the better!
