I am Louise. I live in Derbyshire.

I studied at the University of Hull reading History and I work as a librarian in Sheffield.

I am a historical novelist and author of A Straight Path (the link to Amazon can be found on my home screen); I have also recently published a non-fiction book covering an aspect of the vast history of the British Empire. The link to my new book, entitled A Show Called Empire: The History of the British Empire According to the Movies, can also be found on my home screen.

You can also find me on twitter @lmhmiller and on Goodreads.

  1. This is a really great blog, Louise. Lots of stimulating things.

  2. A lovely introduction. If your piece on the Indian mutiny is anything to go by, then I would imagine your historical novels should do very well…
