Hi!

I'm Tricia Mason (Nee Neale), a happy a wife and a mum-of-three, and a writer!

I enjoy reading, studying, learning, discussing, traveling, photography, etc. Indeed, I like researching all sorts of subjects!

I have recently published a children's Christmas book and a romance novel on Amazon, for Kindle.

I have a BA degree in Medieval + Modern History and teaching qualifications. I have taught mostly Local History.

I like pretty much anything connected to matters historical. I'm close to my family and enjoy researching our ancestry so I am fascinated by 'deep' genealogy via DNA investigation.

I enjoy languages; learning them, using them, discovering how they develop, etc. I like to find out about word origins, including place-name origins. I also like literature.

When I took my A'Levels, many years ago, I chose French and German, along with History, of course. More recently, I took another A' Level; this time in English literature.

I am also interested in matters theological (though I am agnostic) and matters scientific!!

I am actually interested in lots of things. :)
