We are almost 6 weeks into lockdown and it must have been the strangest ever 6 weeks that any of us can remember.  Will life as we know it ever return?

Meanwhile, I am continuing to work on the next two books in the Bare Essentials series: Kings and Queens of Scotland and Presidents of the U.S.A..  When I need a break from working on the Stewarts, I change to the presidents.

I am looking forward to the day when I can actually visit some of the interesting places in Scotland that will be referenced in the book.  I particularly want to go to Stirling Castle, which I haven’t visited since I was a child as well as pay a visit to the ruins of Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots.
