I live in Johannesburg, South Africa with my supernaturally calm, madly talented blogger husband, 23thorns, our really funny, smart son who isn’t brilliant at sports but is absolutely brilliant at life, our beautiful, bossy daughter who wears more pink and purple clothes in one day than most would need in their whole lives and talks as if her life depends on it, and our two unmanageable dogs.
By day, I run a literary gift company. That is, I make presents for people who like books. I like books. I also research family histories and more often than not am lost in some part of a Long Time Ago. By night, I read books and obsess about historical timelines and World War I.
tracyloveshistory is the story of what interests me and makes me laugh. It is for my dad; some of whose last words to me were to “tell the story”, and it is for my two children so that they might know something about their place in time.
