When I’m wearing my other hat, I’m a genealogist. I help people to trace their ancestors. Genealogy is a fascinating job, but it can also be extremely frustrating at times!
My genealogy website is at http://www.tracingancestors-uk.com.
The combination of the two careers really works for me, because the one feeds the other. My genealogical research helps with getting a real understanding for the historical background and people in my novels, whilst my writing skills can be used for my genealogy work when it comes to writing articles and blogs – but also in extra services such as ancestral biographies and writing services.
Genealogy was a very strong theme in my novel, Out of Time, where the main character finds out about her female ancestors for the last 200 years, and how they have influenced her own life.
