I moved from California to London for the history, and I fell in with a ‘bad crowd’ (publishing). Now I’m a rights agent for children’s books by day, historian and writer by night.
I received my doctorate in history from Birkbeck, University of London in 2014. My PhD thesis was titled “Home away from the home front: The British in the Balkans during the Great War.”
I’ve always been fascinated by the stories in history and the history in stories. As a historian and as a publishing professional, I’m drawn to the way history is published and represented and the role that publishing and story-telling has had in history.
My primary focus is Anglophone culture during the early twentieth century. My research interests include leisure, personal relationships, sex, feminism, travel, and experiences of war.
