History with Mystery and Passion

Happy Birthday, Robert Boyle!

1 Comment

Robert Boyle, often called the Father of Chemistry, was born on January 25, 1627. His work plays an important role in my novel, STALKING HORSE. Because his journals — albeit fictitious ones — are pivotal, I thought I’d share a link to a list written in his own hand.

Isn’t it interesting how many things on his list came true?

Author: Alleyne Dickens

Alleyne Dickens was destined to be a writer the moment her parents named her. It's just taken her a while to get there. Pre-published, Alleyne writes historical romance, historical mystery and historical fantasy (aka steampunk).
