Ian Mortimer The Time Traveller's Guide to Restoration Britain
If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history...
Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great event. Well done to both of you, fantastic event.
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...
Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...
Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...
I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
