Why do you choose to write stories set in this time period?
Of all the historical eras I write in, the early twentieth century feels the most comfortable. I have tried my hand at Regency and WWII, but my heart lies within the thirty or so years either side of 1900. Why? Because ever since childhood, I’ve read authors from that era. Conan Doyle, Jerome K Jerome, Wilkie Collins, EM Forster and the like. I can almost see and hear that time and writing the right cadence for the dialogue comes naturally. Add to that a passion for WWI poetry and living in an Edwardian house, then my choosing that era almost seems inevitable.
