    Hello. I would like to ask what your academic/non-academic background is? I clicked on your profile and found a pretty landscape. I know next to nothing about early-medieval, but am interested and  happy to trade knowledge of the mid-C17th. I am co-founder and co-director of a volunteer led project named MarineLives, which is working on the collaborative transcription, linkage and enrichment of documents from the English High Court of Admiralty, 1650-1669.

    Colin, I missed this. Apologies! My expertise is creative writing rather than early medieval history (I have a PhD from Anglia Ruskin University). But my most recent novel is Hild, set in 7th-C Britain. It won some awards and is taught in several universities (with both a Literature and Early Medieval focus). I’m still researching the seventh-century and creating this group seemed like a good idea…

    Hi Nicola and Colin — just wanted to say that I loved Hild and eagerly await the sequel. (Am I right that there will be a sequel?) All of my work focuses on women’s connections with literary production in pre-1100 England, so I’m a huge Hild fan.
    Cheers, Mary

      Mary, I’m delighted you liked Hild! Yes, I’m working on the sequel, working title Menewood. It’s a bit delayed because I took an unexpected detour to get a PhD 🙂 And then I wrote a (non-7th C) novella. But, yep, sequel in the works, and one more after that.

      Also, I love the stuff you’ve been uploading here…
