Just a quick post to thank you for all the Christmas messages you have sent me, to thank you for all your support over the past few months and to say “Happy New Year!”

As you know, the Elizabeth Files is fairly new and has only been going since August but it already has a loyal following so thank you all of you.I hope that 2010 will see us establishing a great community of Elizabeth I fans and having some great debates about her.

My interest in Elizabeth I grew out of my obsession with her mother, Anne Boleyn, and now I’m hungry for information about Elizabeth too! I see so much of Anne in Elizabeth and they are both fascinating women.

2010 will definitely see me exploring Elizabeth’s character and her reign in more detail, but what would you like me to write about? What aspects of this Queen, her reign and the Elizabethan period would you like me to explore? I’d like to look at Shakespeare and the Arts that Elizabeth encouraged, her portraiture and its symbolism, what Elizabethan life was like and key characters like William Cecil, but I’d love to hear your ideas too so please share them in the comments section below.

Well, all that is left to say is “Happy New Year!” and I hope that you will join me in raising a glass at midnight tonight not just to 2010 but also to Elizabeth I, and Anne Boleyn, who changed the course of English history.

    Cecil is a fascinating character – and so little written about him. Looking forward to the new year – greetings to everyone!
