I am a writer and publisher of history with a passionate interest in language, especially that incredible beast, English. My books are available through Amazon or at barbdrummond.co.uk
I am relaunching my career in September 2018 so will soon have a new website, details to follow.
Books will be available in print and electronic formats at most outlets. Those due for publication include:
