I prefer fiction although I read both. I think I like the escapism that fiction provides. I have a high stress day job and fiction helps me relax after a day of dealing with other people’s problems. I do like non-fiction history books, biographies and the books I use for research for my own novels. I’m currently enraptured by books about the Queen Mary and books dealing with herbal medicine as they are useful for my current works in progress.
I was aboard the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, California. I’m writing a novel set onboard in 1937 and I purchased several books, post card packets and other items to use in my research. I also treated myself to a beautiful white scarf in the couture shop on board and a lovely brooch in the Scottish store. A productive and fun spree.
