Busy Writing

Regency Links

It’s amazing what one needs to research while writing. Everything from ‘wild flowers in the UK that bloom in summer’ to detailed maps of London circa 1813.

While numerous books have provided historical support for this fascinating time period, I have come to rely on certain web sites as well. Since I keep referencing them so often, I though others might too.

Here are some that I’ve found helpful.
