Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a History nut. Her disinclination to get out of bed for anything after 1485 can only be overcome by massive amounts of chocolate, and sometimes, if it's raining, not even then.She wanted to write a book about Time-Travel that was a little different, and not having a clue how difficult this would make her book to classify, went ahead and slung in elements of History, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy and anything else she could think of. Her advice to booksellers is to buy huge numbers of her books and just put one on every shelf.The result is the story of St Mary's. And the nutters who work there. In order, The Chronicles of St Mary's are:Just One Damned Thing After AnotherA Symphony of EchoesA Second ChanceA Trail Through TimeNo Time Like the PastWhat Could Possibly Go Wrong?The seventh book 'Lies, Damned Lies and History' will be published early in 2016.The St Mary's short stories are:When A Child is BornRoman HolidayChristmas PresentShips and Stings and Wedding Rings (available for pre-order)The Very First Damned Thing (available for pre-order)Not one to sit still, she has published a contemporary romance, The Nothing Girl, and the adventures of Russell and Jenny continue in the short story, Little Donkey. Her first Regency novel, A Bachelor Establishment was published early in 2015.She is aware that the multi-genre aspect of her books cause real problems for booksellers and cover designers alike and is very, very sorry.

(that's not a rabbit) I thought this was only a 3 book series! "Then Dr. Bairstow, his voice harsh with urgency said, 'Leon. Get out. They're here. RUN!' How am I supposed to resist that last line! Sucked into another one. LOL Off to Amazon to see if I have enough gift card money left.

Thinking carefully is something that happens to other people. I lost my notes to this book, which is annoying me greatly. So I'm going to be a bit more vague than I want to be. I could tell from the first couple of pages that I was going to have a great time with this book -- our narrator is Dr. M...

So the last St. Mary's book, "And The Rest Is History"mangled my emotions with great skill, putting me through much more angst than any allegedly light story about time-travelling historians has a right to. In her introduction to "An Argumentation Of Historians", Jodi Taylor says that her publishers...

Having only just finished An Argumentation of Historians (the ninth book in the series), this short story was already published two weeks later. And it was completely not what I expected. It is different from the rest in A) there is no 'investigating major/minor historical events in contemporary tim...
