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 first MGM Lion was Irish. The iconic MGM lion, which appears before every MGM film since the studio’s birth, has been a number of different lions since the early 20th century, but the very first MGM Lion was a Dubliner! Slats, born in the Dublin Zoo in 1919, was used on every black and white MGM film between 1924 and 1928. To this day, he is the only MGM lion not to roar, though reportedly he could growl on cue.
