Welcome to my blog about Vikings, historical fiction and my life as a writer.
When I first arrived in the UK and mentioned Vikings I was met with two responses. They could be described as 'a leer' and 'a sneer' but they were both accompanied by the same comment: 'Vikings, oh yes, rape and pillage.' I've known for a long time time that my mission in life would be to provide a counterbalance to the bad press the Vikings have received in this country.
Shieldmaiden is the first step in this campain but that's all I want to say about her. If you want to know more you'll have to check out my website mariannewhiting.com . My blog will be about other things.
