DSC00853When I research a book, before writing the first sentence  I read everything I can find from and about the period I’m studying.

This exhaustive research always inspires character and plot.

Both the small and large details of my historical novels trace their roots back to the documented history I’ve spent a year or more researching.

My imagination kicks in when I take all of that dry data and transform it into people and places the reader can believe in.
