Folly Friday: A Pictorial Tour of Vicky’s London

One of the best things about setting historical stories in England is that the places, for the most part, still exist. I was recently comparing a London street map from 1908 to a modern map and not a lot has changed.  I’m a very visual person so immersing myself into my character’s world opens up a load of story opportunities.  And of course I take photos and refer to them back home whenever I need inspiration. Here is a sampling of places mentioned in A MAD, WICKED FOLLY.

  1. Apologies if you have explained this elsewhere. Why did you chose that house for Vicky? Cool that your character has an actual, physical house.

      Vicky always lived on Berkeley Square in the first drafts so when I visited London I saw that house and right away I thought, yep, that’s her house. : )

  2. Very cool! It’s great to be able to stroll right up to Vicky’s house and wander through the streets of her city. I am very much looking forward to the release of this book. I love historical fiction, and I know (having read your writing) that this book will rock! I can’t say that January was ever my favorite month, but I am certainly looking forward to it in 2014.

Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
