I thought I would use the opportunity of my first blog post for 2011 by telling you about…my first book! It is official that my book, House Histories: The Secrets Behind Your Front Door, will be publishing in late spring this year!
2010 was a very busy year for me, with the interest in house histories continuing to grow, plus the added challenge of writing a book while also continuing a full-time job. Thankfully the bulk of the work is finished and we’re now heading towards the exciting part of the official launch!
The book is a collection of stories of houses from across the UK, including a 15th century chantry house, a ground-breaking Modern style country house, as well as the homes of P.G. Wodehouse and H.G. Wells. The book looks at the stories of many different types of houses from across the country and features a mixture of period styles, all of which are accompanied by photographs and images of historic documents.
