Thanks for dropping by!

I’m Gwen Tuinman, an author digging into the past for details that will form the bedrock of my novels and short stories.

Welcome to my storytelling, trivia-loving, nostalgia-craving, ever-curious mind. I love curating facts essential to the creation of engaging stories.  My blog posts share the gleefully collected bites of history and yesteryear along with the imagery that inspires my writing.
