People often ask me about historical persons, events, and other subjects, and want to know whether they are covered in my books. They are also curious about the family names, both real and fictional, that I have used. So I have begun to put together this small glossary. Click on the item to discover where it is to be found in my books. Or select a book and click on the RESORT tab to resort the items by book.

This glossary is a work in progress, and from time to time I shall add further items from existing, and from future books.

Did You Know?
The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
