Why subscribe to Foxtrot?

I’m Anna Foxkirk, a writer of historical fiction, putting extraordinary women from the past, front and centre today. More often than not, history has been written by men and women seem to have fallen through the cracks. I’m putting them back in the spotlight and redressing the balance with ‘herstories’ from inspiring and astounding women from the past.

I’ve recently made the move to Substack and I’m very much hoping my former subscribers have come along with me. But you know, this whole technology business is a bit hit and miss. Do please email me if you spot something I need to fix.

Ready to Foxtrot..? If you’re broker than broke (believe me I know the feeling) I’d be more than delighted if you simply subscribe to my free, somewhat sporadic, newsletter. All things being well, it flies the coup about once a month. Follow me on my latest historical hunt, hear me ramble about the highs and lows of being a writer, let me bring you interviews from author friends and why not grab a few freebies and more along the way.

Now, as well as my writerly news, views and interviews, at some point later in the year, I’m going to be getting crafty… I’ve been teaching English and history since 1991, I’ve taught in primary, secondary and tertiary sectors as well as run my own English literacy business teaching student teachers. I’m sure I must have a few nuggets of knowledge I can impart. 

Join my earth…(Did you know the collective noun for a group of foxes was an earth?)

Stay up-to-date

You know the saying: the early bird catches the worm…and the cunning fox catches the bird.

Dancing with words. Taking small steps. Seldom bushy-tailed.


Not so cunning with regards genre. Trots between historical fiction, historical fantasy, romantic comedy and other. Frequently lost down the foxhole of research. Seldom bright-eyed and bushy tailed.
