Hearts Through History Romance Writers

Welcome to Hearts Through History’s new home on the web!

We’re glad you’re here. Come in, take a look around, and see what we have to offer.

Our New Look

Our aim with this redesign is to make information about our chapter clear and easy to find. As you visit various pages, you’ll notice that our top header image changes. Our new visual look aims to highlight historical romance’s many varieties and sub genres. We celebrate the fact that HHRW is the only RWA chapter to embrace ALL settings, periods, and types of historical romance.

Share the Class Love

You’ll notice that our classes, including descriptions and registration links, are prominently displayed on our front page. We offer classes for all writers—aspiring and published, historical and contemporary. While some of our classes focus on historical subject matter, others explore author marketing, plotting, and all aspects of writing craft. Most months we offer two month-long classes at $15 for members and $25 for non-members. If you see a class that interests you, please feel free to share the details far and wide. We welcome everyone to our classes at HHRW.

For Current HHRW Members

Under the About menu heading, you’ll see a drop down that leads to “Our Members.” If you’re a current member, you should see your name there. If you have a website and it’s not listed, please let us know and we can add it. You can reach us here: https://www.heartsthroughhistory.com/contact/

A Day in Your Life in the Middle Ages

Good morning, medieval peasant! Rise and shine! The sun is rising and it’s time for you to get to work. You roll out of bed, which you share with your spouse, yawn and stretch, and trudge across the room to wake your three children. Your house has just one bedroom...

Iced Glissoires and Balançoires in St. Petersburg

On a recent trip to a used book store, I came upon a wonderful find in the architecture section. I visit the store periodically to hunt for research books, and because the various employees tend to classify things differently, there are several sections I check,...
