Name:Jones 593
Location:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, then. Bibliophile and scribbler fuelled chiefly by caffeine and nicotine. Live with one cat (a psychotic & furry Napoleon).

I have a degree in English and work in the publishing industry. Am attempting to get a career as an author off the ground; so far, this isn't on the runway yet. In fact, it's not even out of the garage as yet (but I'm metaphorically situated under it, covered in oil and wielding a spanner whilst cursing, so there's always hope).

I daresay I'll eventually get around to scribbling a proper bio, but against that no particular order, I will stake my tattered flag in the following handy labels: Trotskyist Marxist, radical Catholic, historical battle re-enactor (English Civil War Parliamentarian musketeer, French Napoleonic fusilier), butch[ish] bisexual, artist (of sorts), Holmesian, historical militaria enthusiast, anti-war activist, feminist, writer, viola player, slashfic aficionado, sci-fi fan.

I also enjoy folk music, and blowing things up with gunpowder; occasionally simultaneously. :)

Do friend if you would like to.

My Sherlock Holmes fan work, a small but steadily growing archive of fic, art, etc. Fiction archived at [info]jezail_bullet

"To Sherlock Holmes, Wilde was the dramaturge with all that gorgeous blue china, God bless him."

"During World War II, Britain shipped, by weight, more tea to her troops than anything save bullets. Small arms ammunition, that is: the British army consumed more tea than artillery shells. By weight.

Contemporary soldier Spike Milligan observed that they were damn lucky that Rommel never tried baiting minefields with tea..."
