An historical author shares her obsessions with books, tea, chocolate, wine, and whatever takes her fancy!

I'm over at the Riskies today, with the second of my Spooky October Tuesdays (famous ghosts of the UK today!). I also found out today marks the anniversary of the very first Oktoberfest, in 1810. It was more a wedding party, a celebration of the marriage between Crown Prince Leopold of Bavaria and Princess Teresa held in a meadow near Munich. There was a horse race, dancing, beer, and feasting! So go and find an Oktoberfest today...
