The gift of writing historical fiction by Liz Hyder – Historia Magazine

All of my research, whatever it is, feeds into the world of the book, often in ways barely perceptible to the reader, a detail, a brushstroke to add colour. But I love all of it, that sense of feeling like a detective, tracking down the elements that will help you crack the story.

Writing historical fiction, or ‘historical-adjacent fiction’ as a friend calls what I write (given the growing of wings!), is such a fascinating, brilliant, inspiring joy of a thing, embarking on a journey of exploration into the past, following my own lifelong love of history, to bring you, the reader, on a storytelling journey alongside me.
