About The Lipstick Historian

I am a mature student currently enrolled on an MA in Public History at Royal Holloway.

I graduated in 1986 with a Law degree from the LSE, qualified as a solicitor in 1989 and practiced for a number of years. Whilst raising my family, I rediscovered a youthful love of history.

My prime interest is 20th Century Europe. Born to a German mother and an English father in the 1960’s, I also have my own life experience to draw on as a historian. Unsurprisingly, my two favourite cities are London and Berlin and I have lived in both.
