Although my genre tends primarily towards history, I am an extremely versatile professional, and, of course, with a proven record in historical research, you can be certain that I am able to competently tackle most subjects,...

With that in mind, I have also done a great deal of shorter work, articles and blogs and more concise academic presentations. Having worked in the field of history, and dealt often with subjects that I have no personal experience of, in depth research has time and again proved to be my greatest strength, combined with my ability to create highly readable prose out of ostensibly dry research material.
