Feature articles
I research and write magazine feature articles, either commissioned or self-generated. I am interested in history, so most of my work is in the nature of "a history of" a particular subject: anything that grabs my interest. The subjects I cover tend to be in the realm of art, design, books, travel, heraldry, automobiles, lifestyle, history etc. Subjects I don't cover are sport, finance, sport, politics, sport, religion & sport.
