I've been a member of Lulu since January 2009, and love writing, research and, of course, reading - my interests being mainly historical. I've lots of experience as an editor and self-publisher, though I do have one 'proper' book to my name via another publisher, namely, 'England's First Football Captain'. I ran 'The North-Easterner Magazine' during 1994-2004 (local/family history), then the 'North-East History Tour blog' at www.northeasthistorytour.blogspot.com up until 2018. I currently maintain 'The Newcastle History Blog' at https://newcastle-history.blogspot.com/ and have begun writing books on the history of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the North-East in general for charity (see left-hand column of the blog). Hope you enjoy my books - and there'll be more to come soon.
