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.

I love getting lost in the search for 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.

You can hear me on The Wellspring Podcast, featuring audio versions of my most beloved posts plus interviews with historians and other fascinating people.  Just click here or visit iTunes.

Welcome to my storytelling, trivia-loving, nostalgia-craving, ever-curious mind. I’m so glad you’re here. Stay inspired. Keep smiling. And we’ll chat again soon.
