I will interview Ingrid Maclean, editor of the COMYNS BEAUMONT book THE GREAT DECEPTION about the hidden history of Britain.
INGRID MACLEAN (from her website)
I’m a linguist and former tutor now home educating my twin daughters and researching and writing about the origins and structure of language and its association with all that catastrophic history we don’t get to see.
As Mason Bigelow I’ve written a book about the lost history of Britain (I’m now working on another) and a play based on Comyns Beaumont’s life of Francis Bacon as the secret son of Elizabeth I and the author of the plays of Shakespeare.
I’ve just finished a book of short stories based on my personal experiences of Spiritualism, Rosicrucianism and freemasonry, following on a traumatic and tragic accident which turned my world upside down and showed me a bigger picture.
I curate the Comyns Beaumont Archive with the Du Maurier family, and run a small independent publishing house with my own family, reissuing important and hard to find titles by Comyns Beaumont, J W Dunne and David Lindsay, along with many other books on related topics by well-known authors previously out of print, as well as works by ground-breaking new writers.
We also have a Puppet Museum with a Punch & Judy Show, which might seem a wee bit incongruous, but when you watch the film you’ll be surprised to see how many seemingly weirdly-placed dots actually do join up, and how central to the story is Mr Punch!
