My name is Helene Harrison and I run TudorBlogger. I’m in my early 30s and have an interest in Tudor History, which has been developed through my university experiences. I have finished my Masters degree in History with Commendation, following on from my BA in History with an Upper Second. I also have an MSc in Library Management with Distinction.
Aside from the Tudors, my other interests are the Wars of the Roses, the haut ton in the English Regency, and the history of Nazi Germany, particularly the Holocaust, along with a morbid fascination with Jack the Ripper.
I also really enjoy reading and writing, both factual and fictional and run a second blog at https://bookbloggerish.wordpress.com/ if you want to go take a look!
The idea for TudorBlogger came from my dread of finishing university. I love to research and write, and I felt a bit bereft. This was my way of continuing my passion while working full-time.
Three things to know about me:
- Aside from history and books, my other big love is musical theatre and my favourite musical of all time is Les Miserables.
- I have mild Asperger’s Syndrome which makes me incredibly organised and quite a perfectionist!
- I look a lot younger than I am – people seem to think I’m only early to mid-20s …
