I love the Middle Ages, but, to be honest, most of my research time goes into my book. I am learning more and more every day about the power players during the middle thirteenth century in the Holy Roman Empire. I don’t recall learning much about the Holy Roman Empire when I was in school. Most of the Medieval studies focused on England, France, Spain, and Italy. All those kingdoms, duchies, counties, and ecclesiastical sees in central Europe just aren’t given much time. As a former teacher, I understand that, you can’t cover everything, and, in a way, I appreciate it. Not having learned much about this area made me want to learn more, so I explore it every day.
I was thinking about all I’ve learned about the REAL people who I write in The Fairytale Keeper series, and I thought it would be fun for my readers to learn a little more of these fascinating people who are unknown to most of us. I hope you enjoy what’s coming up, and that it makes you curious as to how it will all end up in The Fairytale Keeper series.
So now you know what my favorite time period in history is, what’s yours??

It was really hard for me to pick a favorite time period, as most of my interest spans from the High Middle Age period through to the end of the Renaissance, but then I also really love a lot of the 1600s thru the mid 1800s, so I guess you could say I enjoy just about all of it!
