I enjoy travelling and have been lucky enough to visit a fair bit of Western Europe as well as some much further flung places including, Cambodia, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Peru and Vietnam among others. I also love history, particularly social history (just as well since it formed the basis of my degrees). Consequently I find I’m often drawn to books that are set in a place I’ve visited, or have a specific period setting. If they combine the two I’m doubly happy.
From this grew the idea of hosting a feature with authors whose books have a particular time and place setting. As well as getting the author to explain their choices and motivations, I also thought it would be fun to have them reveal their own Time and Place interests.
In addition it gives me an excuse to reveal some of my own bookish favourites based on my own travels and interests. So Time and Place was born, so sit back and let’s see where we travel to.
