Here you’ll find some of the articles & pieces I have written for publication in a variety of different places. Topics covered include: Downton Abbey; oral history; 1920’s Britain; shell-shock; asylums and definitions of madness; identity. If something I’ve said has caught your imagination and you’d like to quote it then I’m happy for you to spread my words but please attribute me (Ruth Wade or BK Duncan) as author. A link back here would also be appreciated.


This is the place where me talking about my books or the skills & craft of writing or me just talking will end up. They could be interviews with author Ruth Wade or author BK Duncan. If you’re looking for something specific and it’s not here then try under news or media because I might not have salted it away yet.


Radio and television programmes about me and my work; written pieces having a broader remit than an interview; where to find me on-line when I’m not here on my website. A gathering of clippings as befits any proper scrapbook.


Clippings featuring writer Ruth Wade / BK Duncan. About me. About books. About my books. Plus any other snippet that can be deemed newsworthy.
