London is like Rome: dig down a few feet and you’ll run into something ancient: from houses and baths to entire amphitheaters – stay tuned!
Who doesn’t love half-buried stones that now barely resemble what they once used to be? Apparently, it’s not just me.
The longest (and only!) queue I stood in during the Open House London 2019 was to see the Roman house and baths. Of course, they're buried in the basement of modern high-rise building.
I read a lot and I hope to help authors with the craft of writing. I share good examples of difficult aspects of writing: point of view, narration, world building and more.
Occasionally I give editing tips and share insights from the world of publishing.
