Titanic Week

Almost one hundred years ago the doomed White Star Line vessel RMS Titanic left Southampton Docks for her maiden trip to New York.

This major historical event is a backdrop for The Lynchcliffe Cuckoo series so I would be failing in my duty if I did not do a Titanic page on my blog.

I was struck by something that a friend across the Pond said recently; that she heard on a radio show that a lot of kids don’t realise that the Titanic was a major historical vent as they think only of the movie starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslett. Quite what is taught in history these days is unsure but it is proof educational standards are in severe decline.

The heroine of The Lynchcliffe series loses her adoptive parents on the ship and our hero, Lewis Franklin, loses his nephew, Daniel. Lady Helena Lynchcliffe loses her sister. Far too many people died.

Tricia Drammeh is intending to promote my Titanic related works all week as well as running excerpts and general information. She has faithfully read every word of the series and I am very grateful to her interests in promotion efforts.
