I want to go to the UK to visit several sites including Hereford, Shrewsbury, Wells, Salisbury and Bath as part of a research effort for several projects.
Back in 2003-2005, I lived in the UK for a short period of time, so I also intend to catch up with a few of my friends I haven't seen in years. But the main point of this trip is research.
I am a published writer with several books out from a small print publisher. One of my planned projects, "Wake of the White Ship," takes place in the West Country during the 12th century anarchy. It's a spinoff of my novel "The Vimana Incident." Another project, a biography of William Longsword, Third Earl of Salisbury, will require visiting archives and speaking with historians.
My biographical work on William Longsword has already been featured in Encyclopedia Britannica. I rewrote their article with a great deal more material gleaned from my research, but I feel I can gather more information still.
I would like to spend at least 3 weeks in the UK if at all possible. I will need some money for ground transport and lodging as well. If possible I would like to bring my husband with me since he has never been to the UK.
My novel "The Vimana Incident" can be purchased here:
