Introduction to the blog

For the record: handy, the way WordPress keeps things around for future reference.

This blog will be aimed at readers, not writers. When I have something to say about writing or about self-publishing, I’ll use the Capitol Crime Writers blog. Anna Castle’s blog will be about the life and times of Francis Bacon: the endlessly fascinating Elizabethan period. I will share some of the wonderful stuff I come across in my research that doesn’t fit into a book. I’ll do reviews of biographies of my major historical characters and write mini-bios of some of the minor historical figures that appear in the books. I’ll do reviews of sources occasionally, especially the ones that can be found in Google Books or other free online repositories. And I have a zillion pictures from my trips to England to look at all the places they have preserved through the ages for people like you and me to enjoy. All hail the National Trust!


I’ll also run, irregularly, a column called Sir Francis Advises, offering assistance with thorny ethical conundrums. Who better consult on such matters than philosopher and statesman, Francis Bacon?
