Author has written 30 stories for Downton Abbey.

I'm a freelance writer, editor, and researcher. I have an M.A. degree in Irish and Irish-American Studies. My thesis was on the history of working women in Ireland and the role women played during the Dublin Lockout. I know a lot about Irish history, though I don't claim to be an expert. I'm always willing to assist anyone with questions about Ireland from 1910-1923, and if I don't know something, I can try to point you in the right direction. I'm a feminist and a progressive. I'm a fan of Downton Abbey and the Sybil/Tom ship. I also adore the sassiness of Mrs. Patmore and Mrs. Hughes. I'm also a bit of a Tumblr addict and my blog can be found here: http:///.

Chapter 2:

Tom sings Irving Berlin's "If I Had You" to Maggie. The song is from 1914, but the lyrics seemed appropriate for Tom and Sybil's relationship, and I thought it would be cute for Tom to sing it to Maggie. Here is the link to the sheet music and a sample for what the song sounds like: http:///sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0019923. Here’s the link to the full song lyrics: http:///lyrics/irving_berlin/if_i_had_you.html.

Sybil sings "Scottish Lullaby" to Maggie. The song has older lyrics than the ones she sings, which were written by Sir Walter Scott. Scott's version is called "Lullaby of an Infant Chief." Here is the link to the original lyrics, http:///scottish.html, and to the ones Sybil sings, http:///poem/lullaby-of-an-infant-chief/. The tune can be found in a posting on my tumblr.
