“You’d find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair,” said Anne reproachfully. “People who haven’t red hair don’t know what trouble is.” – Anne of Green Gables.

I am Melanie Clegg, an authoress of novels of POSH DOOM, history geek, Versailles obsessive, Paris lover, historical fiction writer, Victorian Prostitute re-enactor, Art History graduate, committed vegetarian, GIN taster, curry lover and Pimms addict living in deepest darkest Bristol with my family.

I’m a member of the Whitechapel Society and London Historians and also a reviewer for the Historical Novel Society.

I shouldn’t really need to say this but all the written content on this site is my own work and copyrighted to me so please ask before using elsewhere. I’ve come across a couple of sites now that have lifted my work without any acknowledgement and it leaves a nasty taste to be honest and makes me YOUR ENEMY FOR LIFE.

Most of the art work is a free for all so help yourself so long as it isn’t for reasons of personal gain and iniquity, but a lot is down to my own lame photographic skills so please ask if you suspect this to be the case.

I’m really dedicated to introducing people to gorgeous art work that they might not otherwise have seen – I try my best to ensure that the works that I feature fall within the boundaries of fair use and are either my own work, freely available or I have permission from the source. However, if I have accidentally posted up something that I really ought not to have done, let me know and I’ll remove it straight away! Thanks!
