A story from Kensington Palace

I’m back – with a book.

Other writing has kept me away from this blog. I’ve been working on a collaborative project with Kensington Palace, trying my hand at a piece of historical fiction.

My short story, Educating Peter, was based on an episode in the life of Peter the ‘Wild Boy’, a well-known character in the 1720s. It was one of thirteen to be published recently in an anthology of creative writing inspired by a visit to the Palace, Stories from Kensington Palace. It’s been not so much a learning curve as a learning vertical take-off, but I’ve enjoyed it enormously.

If you’d like to find out more, I’ve written about it on the Other Projects page of this blog.

I’ll be going back to genealogy next time I post. See you then!

About rebelhand

A Rebel Hand is: about Nicholas Delaney, Irish rebel of 1798, transported as a convict to New South Wales, roadbuilder, innkeeper and farmer. My great-great-great grandfather. Other ancestors transported to Australia, like Sarah Marshall, John Simpson and James Thomas Richards, pop up as well. This blog's also about the historical background to their lives, in England, Ireland, and Australia. My respectable Welsh ancestors sometimes get a look in.
