The Resource Library of Handpicked Historical Resources And Helpful Tools For A Better Writing Process
I love historical novels which make me feel like I’m being swept away into the past.
And I believe that details make all the difference. Like an old, fast Peugeot. The blue tiles in a French kitchen. Or a splendid ball gown, only worn for a single night. All those details that conjure up a long-forgotten world.
My name is Dr. Barbara, and I’m a researcher & historical advisor for authors.
I am committed to finding memorable details from the past, as I plough through history books, decipher the spidery handwriting in old letters, and interview experts & authors on how they conduct research. Read along as I investigate a new topic every week, and publish resources for writers.
Because I want your quest for historical details to be the best part of writing your novel.
How the »Wellcome Images Database« can help you to conduct research for your next novel
»Wellcome Images« is a database of 100.000 pictures, drawings, sketches & photos. It is connected with the famous Wellcome Library, which stores information about medical history and the human condition. As an author, you can easily find images for the scenes you want to write.
Handselected residencies, submissions, contests, travel grants etc. for authors.
