"Like spiders laying in wait for their prey, the anxieties of daily life seem to lay dormant to attack us when we're most vulnerable. What's wrong with me? Will anyone love me? Why doesn't anyone care? Helena Lancaster takes these fears and turns them into a lyrical rumination. These haunting poems evoke a hero of the Byronic persuasion and female to boot!" - Erica Dawn "Helena Lancaster's deeply emotional poetry shows the world a peek inside the soul of someone who has felt like an outsider, battled emotional abuse, and depression. These poems are an ode to days past for her, the physical remnants of where she has been. She sees herself as a survivor of some very painful events in life and just hopes that her words can help others know that in their darkest moments they're not alone." Behind the Mask is the first professional publication by writer Helena Lancaster. It contains seventy-five of her poems split into four sections: Nightmares and Solitude, Faces in the Mirror, Haunted Memories, and Circus of Life. Helena has been writing since she was a child, using poetry as a way to deal with the pain of difficulties in life. Her poetry captivates and touches the soul of anyone who has ever felt like they were alone in the dark.

Before he was the legend, he was Vlad conquering more than Turks but hearts. He unexpectedly met and fell in love with two sisters. What he didn't realize was that he would not be able to live without either of them. A story of love, passion, war, betrayal, and murder. Vlad has chosen his bride, but still remains torn between Erdenia and ErzsEbet.

In 2007 English Heritage commissioned initial research into links with transatlantic slavery or its abolition amongst families who owned properties now in its care. This was part of the commitment by English Heritage to commemorate the bicentenary of the abolition of the British transatlantic slave trade with work that would make a real difference to our understanding of the historic environment in the longer term. The research findings and those of other scholars and heritage practitioners were presented at the 'Slavery and the British Country House' conference which brought together academics, heritage professionals, country house owners and community researchers from across Britain to explore how country houses might be reconsidered in the light of their slavery linkages and how such links have been and might be presented to visitors. Since then the conference papers have been updated and reworked into a cutting edge volume which represents the most current and comprehensive consideration of slavery and the British country house as yet undertaken.
